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

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.

You can play guessing games anywhere and everywhere. It’s an easy way to make a walk to school, or a car or bus journey more fun. Just think of a number between 0-30 and get your child to guess what it is. You can help them by saying ‘higher’ or ‘lower’.

Try breakfast by numbers, using your morning cereal packs to count the number of words beginning with the same letter. Or, for fun, you could try and find rhyming words together.
