Numeracy All Around Us

We love using our environment to learn about literacy! This week Reid extended his interest in football by remembering and writing the scores from the weekend in the Knights and Dragon's colours.

Zoe was sorting our jungle animals by size and by number within her dramatic play extending her numeracy skills into everyday life. 

By involving numeracy in our interests children are developing numeracy skills in meaningful and a relevant context. Literacy and numeracy capabilities are important aspects of communication and positive attitudes and experiences with literacy and numeracy build foundations for competency with early childhood and for later learning.
