Maths in the home

Mark making is the very start of your child's writing journey and there are many ways that you can encourage mark making opportunities at home.

Maths is everywhere in the home and outdoors! A child is able to grasp many of the mathematical concepts through their play experiences.

Why not fill up a bucket with water, add mops, brushes, brooms, sponges, spray bottles and watch them make marks; or making patterns in rice or flour?
