Math Games: The Weekly Kids’ Co-Op
Were you inspired by our Learning to Read Weekly Kids’ Co-op features last week? I spotted quite a few awesome learning to read posts in the link up for the week that has been too. There are so many awesome blogs out there. I love it!
Thank you to the lovely (new and old) readers who dropped a quick note and said ‘Hi’. I was very chuffed when Pete from Say Noodle introduced himself last week because through that friendly “Hi,” I was comforted by the fact that someone was reading my stuff (ha!) and I discovered his totally awesome blog. With a tagline of “making stuff with cardboard and make-do. fast!” how can one resist a quick peep? I ended up browsing for awhile. Totally fun. Totally gorgeous to look at. But then again.. what else would you expect from an art director / designer / creative type? ‘Nuff said. Go! Have fun and explore Say Noodle and let me know what you think, am I right? Isn’t it brilliant?
A self-confessed mathematically challenged person, I completely understand and value the importance of a strong mathematical foundation. It’s ironic isn’t it; I’ve taken an extra super keen interest in Math, a subject that’s not my strength. Thankfully there are wonderful and brilliant math teachers who have spent much time and energy thinking through what it is exactly and how best to teach kids math. I’m constantly learning, and am so glad to share what I’ve learnt. (I hope you’ve joined me in our Math Games series).
From last weeks’ Weekly Kids Co-op, some great math games for kids:
- Math Games: Counting Tiny Teddies by Lessons Learnt Journal
- Learning About Numbers – Subitising and Number Recognition by Octavia and Vicky
- Maths Outdoors by Laughing Kids Learn
- Ten on the Sled: Number Recognition and Counting by Reading Confetti
- Money Counting – A Fun Math Activity by Making Boys Men
Before we head off for another week, my favourite Instagram from our family this week. Parents, isn’t it so true that if you have kids, all you need is to add water and you’ll watch some pretty special moments unfurl? I was particularly frustrated with some issues this particular morning and decided it was time to take out our water table again (after not playing with it for a few months). Watching the boys play made me realise some very important things about kids… (but more of that on Monday when we have extra special news to share!)
