Opportunities for children to develop their math’s skills are seen in every area of play. Lately our tamariki have discovered the wonders of the measuring tape and have enjoyed measuring every piece of furniture and equipment we have here at kindy, their friends and, their Duplo, Lego and Mobilo creations – along with a touch of healthy competition! What a wonderful way to learn about numbers, height, size, length and width – to name just a few.
During Lockdown, teachers saved many tin cans, containers and lids to use as resources here at kindergarten. These provided another amazing opportunity for tamariki to learn math’s concepts as they sorted, matched and organized one VERY LARGE container of exciting, everyday resources.
