For a while now I have been chatting with my friend Bon Crowder about Math. We both see math as a fun activity and look for it in our daily lives... (yes, I admit... we are both math geeks) We believe that children need to be encouraged to question and discover the math around them rather than being told how difficult math is. Lets be honest here: how many things worth doing are very easy to achieve? Any way, this is a different topic for a different time.
Today I would like to tell you more about That's Math!. Bon has taken the challenge of helping parents show their kids that math can be loved. With this in mind she has built a brilliant resource for parents to help their kids become more confident and engaged in maths.
That’s Math! contains guided steps to SEE MATH and SAY MATH out loud to your kids. This includes instructions, printable quick reference cards and lots of opportunity to develop your positive math influence! In addition, That’s Math! includes printable sets of DO MATH worksheets, activities and coloring pages that your children can do with you or by themselves.
In other words Bon has managed to create an amazing resource that helps parents identify educational activities to engage their kids around the house, outdoors and grocery store.
Why don't you check it out by yourself and let me know what you think in the comments below. Both Bon and I would love to get your feedback on this.
