– A game of hide and seek can help build maths concepts and vocabulary?
– A train ride can help children learn about numbers and time?
– Cleaning out a cupboard can become a game of sorting: by size, quantity and colour?
Springboard to Maths and Science explains these ideas and much more. Released just in time for the start of the new school year, the book is aimed at parents of children aged four to six who want to help their chidlren develop a strong foundation in maths and science concepts.
This is not a workbook, but a comprehensive guide to the kinds of skills any parent can help their child develop – often through activities which they may already do, and always without special equipment or programmes.
