Children learn when they are having fun and this post from The Link @ Sparrow Numeracy is a great example!

“Our kids love using play dough mats and dominoes! We use the mats from numbers 1 to 18, which are shared amongst the children. Then we give them a few dominoes and they have to add up the total of the dominoes and place them on the corresponding mat. We are hoping with time that the children will be able to recognize the number of dots on a domino instead of having to count every time”.

Have you read our book of the month to YOUR children?

The Tiger Who Came to Tea ...is a children’s book that never ceases to charm children.
Sophie is having tea with her mother, when an enormous tiger arrives at their door. The duo politely invites the tiger into their home to join them. Neither the tiger's arrival nor its insatiable appetite is as intriguing as Sophie and her mom’s hospitality towards it. When the tiger leaves, they have a mess to tidy, a home devoid of any food and a problem to contemplate - what to do about dinner! They resolve each issue with grace and ease and they have the foresight to purchase tiger food in case their visitor ever returns - but it never does!
Judith Kerr combines fantasy, subtle humour and sensibility in this well-liked classic.

One of our volunteers shares her story....

"I started reading with a little boy this year who was really very far behind. I tried everything I could think of but we didn't seem to be making much progress. One day, he wrote on the white board, 'I love my Mam'. I responded by telling him that I was sure his mother loved him too. He shook his head and said, 'No, not my mother.... you!'
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry but it is moments like this that make it all worthwhile and tell me that I am getting through to this little boy!" 💕
