Would you rather read a number on a page or throw or spin a number? Dice and spinners make maths fun. Sharing fun maths at home will be really inspiring for your child now and into the future. The advantages of using a dice or spinner don’t stop there. The pattern, of for example, six dots on a dice, offers support to learning about numbers whereas when your child encounters the numeral ‘6’ it is abstract and much more difficult to make sense of.
Will you throw a six? From modern brain imagery we now know that when the brain is anticipating a chance event new learning happens very easily. Wow.
