School run is learning fun
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
