Videos 13 - 16 of the series that supports and expands upon the Child's Play Maths 1 & 2 programme.
Child's Play Maths is designed to introduce maths concepts to children from the age of 5 years through to the age of 11 years. It can equally be used as an effective 'catch-up' programme for older children or adults who struggled to grasp maths concepts the first time round.
Unit 13: Math and Language Development: How Child’s Play Math actually helps your child’s reading development.
Unit 14: Introducing Signs – Addition: The brain enjoys detecting pattern, the more data we give it the better. When we introduce the signs to children we will do so over a short period of time.
Unit 15: Introducing Signs – Greater/Smaller:. The video introduces children to the ‘greater than’ > and ‘less than’ < signs.
Unit 16: Introducing Signs – Equivalence = The video introduces and explains why the concept of equivalence is absolutely foundational to the understanding of maths..
Also included are the accompanying PPT Presentations that comprise part of each video.
Four new videos plus the PPT Presentations will be added each month. Together they comprise a full years course.
