Top tips for building a learning environment:

When embarking on the marvellous journey of teaching children math, buckle up for a thrilling adventure filled with excitement!

Your mission is to create a learning environment that is as engaging as a roller coaster ride and as supportive as a team of cheerleaders. So, put on your math superhero cape, and let's dive in!

Here are some tips to support their learning:

1.Have visual resources around to support learning.

Imagine math as a fantastical world where numbers come to life, dancing and prancing around, just waiting to be explored.

Show them how to use numbers in practical ways, like counting on the abacus or dividing their yummy pizza slices or candles on the birthday cake. To make this experience truly unforgettable, sprinkle a dash of fun and relatability into the mix and suddenly, math becomes a magical tool that they can wield in the real world!

2. Use mathematical language as part of the daily play and routine.

Build towers with blocks and there are really wonderful blocks out there from Uncle Goose. Teach them about sorting, counting, and patterns.

Unleash their inner detectives with math treasure hunts.

How many animals can you see?

Which one is big, medium, and small?

Who knew math could be this adventurous?

But wait, there's more! Let's not forget about the mighty power of real-life examples. Take them on a math-filled expedition to the store and theatre, where they can weigh fruits and vegetables.

How many sugars would you like in your tea or coffee?

By connecting math to their world, you'll witness their understanding grow like a blooming flower.

3. Make it fun while embracing the joy of learning together.

Encourage regular practice sessions, where they can conquer mathematical challenges with bravery and determination, and just like athletes, train for their big game. Have you seen the Sudoku game from Smallfoot or the counting sticks? They truly are a wonderful resource.

With each practice, they'll build confidence and discover the underlying principles and logic that make math such an intriguing puzzle.

So, my fellow math explorers, remember to create an environment where learning becomes an exciting quest. Make math come alive, be their guide through captivating activities and games, and showcase the magic of numbers in the world around them. With a supportive and engaging approach, you'll transform math into an exhilarating ride they'll want to hop on again and again. Let the math adventure begin!
