Fitting more time into your day with Read, Write, Count

We all know what it feels like to want another 5 minutes in bed. How about 2 minutes for tooth brushing? Or 10 minutes until tea time? Fit more time into your day with this fun video, and find out how telling the time together can make every minute count.

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.

Get your child to think up a tasty feast their toys might enjoy – and then get them to write everything down in a shopping list. They could think about how many potatoes they’d need to buy? What’s for dessert?

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.
