Children at Bright Horizons Cramond Early Learning and Childcare centre in Edinburgh have recently been introduced to a new mathematics resource, Maths Monsters.
The resource sees children take it in turns to take home a bag, which contains a number of boxes with different things inside. Their task is to count them out on each given day.
“We took delivery of the bag and encouraged the children to use their skills of prediction to guess what was inside the box,” said Nursery Manager Pauline Cant. “The children can borrow the bags for a week and take responsibility for counting all of the pieces out.”
