The idea of teaching math is intimidating, and right now as your child is bouncing happily about the house narrating stories with their toys, the thought of them sitting down for worksheets sounds like a daunting task.
But what if you could connect with your child's inner storyteller and develop their understanding for math in a way that appeals to their desire to play?
What if there was a way to teach math without worksheets and traditional textbooks?
This has made Gattengo's teaching so much easier for me! I feel as though it's all been handed to me on a plate, laid out wonderfully. The kids love it. I like how they can work through some of the task cards on their own too. I used the printer friendly version and printed it all in black and white. It still looks great. Thanks for this amazing resource!
Imagine a math class that was more like art class where your child was excited to begin the day building interesting and beautiful math equations.
Imagine your child not needing a textbook because they spent time creating their own equations and discovering new math ideas through playful tasks. Imagine them delighting over equations involving addition, subtraction, fractions, multiplication, squares and cubes...
Maybe that seems like an impossible task, but in my 5 days to More Playful Math email course, I show you how easy it is to start this journey. I connect you with amazing Math Educators and science based strategies that make this possible.
Great activity. My kinder class had a lot of fun with it, and it wasn't too hard. A great way for them to start learning about the relationships in rod length.
