In cel­e­bra­tion of Walk to School Month , Read, Write, Count is en­cour­ag­ing fam­i­lies across Scot­land to in­cor­po­rate count­ing into their daily walk to school.

Count­ing doesn’t just mean maths. It can be lots of things from work­ing out the time, recog­nis­ing num­bers on the jour­ney, spot­ting cars of dif­fer­ent colours or count­ing the foot­steps you take.

Read out the num­bers on buses or house num­bers you spot

Count the yel­low or red cars. Which were there more of?

Check the time be­fore you leave and work out how long it takes to walk to school.

If you’re pop­ping to the shops on the way home, read the prices on la­bels to­gether, count coins out loud and ask your child to help pick out the cor­rect coins.

Count your foot­steps up or down in num­ber se­quences, and see if you can count in twos, threes or fours and have a learn­ing trip to school.

Fun learn­ing This is an ex­am­ple of how to make the school run ed­u­ca­tional
