This week our pre-school children have been to their own outdoor market.
We developed our literacy skills when we spent time making shopping lists of all the things we wanted to buy. We scoured the stalls for our items and then worked on our mathematical skills by counting out precisely what we needed and using real money to pay for our shopping.
Next time you go shopping take your child with you. It doesn’t just give them real life experiences it is also a rich learning environment.
