TIPS FROM THE TEACHER


TIP 1: Make lunch together –and make the sandwiches in different shapes. Can they cut their sandwich in half? Can they cut the other sandwich in half a different way?


TIP 4: Make paper darts and change the weight so that they fly differently, work out which is the best design

create a repeating pattern (e.g kōwhaiwhai patterns) to fill up a page or decorate a card.


TIP 7: Plan for a special event on a budget; e.g afternoon tea for a grandparent, teacher or family friend or make water balloons and see how far you could throw them (outside!!) and how far the water splatters.


TIP 10:  Count forwards and backwards (starting with numbers like these fractions: ¼ , ½ , ¾ , 1, 1¼ , 1½ then back again) or talk about large numbers in your environment e.g., computer game scores, distances

TIP 2: Play card and board games that use guessing and checking, or do complicated jigsaw puzzles, or cook or bake – use measuring cups, spoons (½ and ¼ teaspoon) and scales.


TIP 5: Play mathematics "I Spy" – something that is ½ a km away, something that has 5 parts hide something from each other and draw a map or hide several clues – can you follow the map or the clues and find it?


TIP 8: Collect the family and whānau birthdays and put in order – make a reminder calendar for the year or bake and  follow a simple recipe (scones, pikelets).

 


TIP 11: Talk about the phases of the moon and link these to the best times for fishing/planting

talk about the patterns in the night sky – summer and winter. What changes and why?

TIP 3: Collect boxes  from around the house. Unfold them and see if you can make them up again or make it into something else.

 


TIP 6: Remember, the way your child is learning to solve mathematics problems may be different to when you were at school. Get them to show you how they do it and support them in their learning.

 


TIP 9: Look through junk mail and find the most expensive and cheapest item advertised or make into strips to make a woven mat, or  make a roster for jobs around the house.

 


TIP 12:  Look at the nutrition table on food labels – how much fat, sugar, salt - and decide on the healthiest choice and  practice their  times tables.
