Doing math - Everyday life


Pressure-free learning does wonders. Just letting the child handle the entire scene brings contentment.

DD1 got a chance to lay her hands on some currency notes that she wanted to know how much there was in total. I offered her cloth pegs, seeds, markers, eraser and she got busy for the next half an hour!!!










She first used cloth pegs to count.

After a while she said, she would put just dots and then count ALL of them.

She even used some seeds to count in one of the attempts.

Play. Learn. Repeat. Play. Learn. Repeat.
