Wednesday Tips #14


Ever wondered how you can help your young grandchildren develop their maths and numeracy skills?

You need look no further than the old game of Snakes and Ladders. Not only will children learn to recognise a number by the dot pattern on a die, they will also develop one- to- one correspondence as they  count and move their counters the correct number of spaces. This is in addition to learning the importance of taking turns, following game rules and learning that one cannot win all the time. You’ll have fun as well and that’s a win/win all round!
