King Arthur has developed somewhat of an aversion to workbooks and being taught maths out of a book - which leaves me a daily challenge of creativity... (not to mention some work ahead of me on attitude and habit training!)!
Here's a glimpse of how I made maths creative the other day -
|Recycling milk bottle tops, we wrote numbers on them.|
Where the lid was a darker color, we used masking tape
|Then we placed them on the floor, and he got his|
|Then he found them and picked them up!|
|Bonds of 15|
|Bonds of 19|
I think this would work well on a number of levels, even using tongs from the kitchen! Perhaps tweezers and smaller counters would increase fine motor skills too? He had fun today, doing Maths, and for now, that's all that counts!
