Counting is all fun and games

Children love playing games like Snakes and Ladders. As they roll the dice, climb the ladders and slither down the snakes they’re counting at the same time.

Handy tips

Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.

Making crayon rubbings of coins is a great way to help your child find out about the numbers on coins, and the different sizes of each coin.

Try taking it in turns to say alternate numbers to 30, while rolling or throwing a ball back and forth. Then, if you’re up for a challenge, try it backwards and in 2s. Start at different numbers, or if you don’t have a ball handy pat your tummy or clap your hands while you count.
