Remote Learning is hard, especially as we don’t have all the resources and learning aids that they are used to having in their classrooms at school. So I have pulled together some simple learning games and aids for remote learning that might help you and your kids whilst supporting them at home in their education.
Woah, all I can say is that maths has changed since I was at school, with new ways of working things out and also new tools to help children. I had never heard of number bonds. So to make life easier I have gathered together some games, posts and aids that might help. I have discovered that often when children are playing they have no idea they are learning.
These are not online tools – when we have schools and teachers offering online learning I think our children need some physical games and toys to help! These are aimed at helping parents support our children and encourage them to play in the house when they are not receiving schooling via their teacher.
Maths Learning Games and Tools
Maths can take many forms and many of these games and tools will be family to your children from their classrooms. Often using a physical representation can really help a child visualise the problem.
Literacy Tools and Games
I am not going to lie phonics were not something I learned at school, but were transformation for my children’s learning. Often just supplying children with simple letters and cards helps and reading with your child is the most important thing you can do. My boys used to love playing scrabble or eben using the tiles to spell out, it is a fab learning game.
