As You Go Learning: Numeracy & Hopscotch

numeracy agilityWelcome back to this week’s “as you go learning” – simple and fun every day activities that kids can do and play AND which promote learning!

Today we are playing hopscotch! A brilliant all round game – of course there is counting, number recognition, but also hand eye co-ordination and agility. Wow. What an all rounder!

Use your own chalk to draw your hopscotch game on the pavement and your kids get to practice writing too. PERFECT I say!

No wonder it is SO popular! And the kids love love love to play! I remember this game fondly from my childhood.

  1. Hopscotch is a great learning game! The best learning games are the ones that kids don’t even realize they are learning. I know I didn’t pay attention to that when I was a kid!

    Thanks for sharing at The Sunday Showcase. :)
