Children learn best when they’re interested in something. If a child is doing something they are particularly interested in – be it about dinosaurs, dolls, cars, building, insects or whatever – we can use and explore maths concepts with they while they play.
However, learning happens at a different pace for each child and it is important to remember to have fun and make memories while doing all this. While there are teaching opportunities in everything, there are also opportunities to bond, build social skills, make friends etc.
