How to Encourage Your Child to Like Maths?

Age: 6-8 years old

The toy cash register is a useful tool for spicing up Maths :-)

Sometimes, J finds doing the Montessori Stamp Game a little boring. Here is how we brought back the fun (6Y2M25D):

I wrote the problem on the paper receipt roll, he continued with writing the working and he ended off by writing the answer...

He did his calculation from the stamps of the Montessori Stamp Game...

He uses his fingers to count...

He wrote the answer down...

He verified the answer with the calculator of the toy cash machine

This is the worksheet that we used

The idea of using the cash machine was actually his idea, not mine :-)

The cash machine is available from Amazon. Buy the one with the paper receipt roll that your child can write on :-):
