I don’t know about you, but I always thought I would be one of those parents that helps their kids with their work – not too much of course, as they do need to learn themselves, but enough to support what they are doing at school, also at home. I was full of good intentions.
And then reality hit me – the reality of kids being in school from 9am until 3:30am. Meaning that realistically “nothing” extra can happen between 8:30am and 4pm. And in the time before and after that, you kind of want to just enjoy your children and also, well, LET THEM be children, right? After all, they need to play and have fun too, right?
So, I came across this fab little video from Ali at Kids Chaos. And it is right up my street – playful maths at home – little things we can do in every day scenarios, making things like maths “real”. Genius.
