It’s easy to make every day a Read, Write, Count day

Whether you’re walking to school together, or doing the weekly shop – there are loads of ways you can squeeze in a wee bit of reading, writing and counting. Take a look at the video  for some ideas.

Handy tips

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.

Playing dice games with your child is a simple way you can help them with their counting.

Even mealtimes can turn into storytimes. Ask your child to create a story about the Cutlery family – with characters like Peggy Plate, Jamie Knife, Fiona Fork and Baby Spoon.
