We didn't have apps etc, but i always remember one teacher igniting my sons interest in reading and maths in year 4/5 by using a subject that was of interest to him, football, to get him reading and solving maths problems. It's something as a teacher i've used with my pupils over the years #pocolochickenrubyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05731936852696584642noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4644650901305580314.post-20181128508653075802017-08-06T21:12:11.617+01:002017-08-06T21:12:11.617+01:00There are so many ways to teach maths and I think ...There are so many ways to teach maths and I think a lot of people forget that you can make it into a game and make it fun! #pocoloJade - Raw Childhoodhttp://www.rawchildhood.co.uk/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4644650901305580314.post-67807009571297874232017-08-05T20:30:33.617+01:002017-08-05T20:30:33.617+01:00I think if you can make it fun and excited you'...I think if you can make it fun and excited you're halfway there X #pocolomummyhereandtherehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00562590012796034024noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4644650901305580314.post-71558048743642866512017-08-04T14:16:46.626+01:002017-08-04T14:16:46.626+01:00I think it's a great app, especially for those...I think it's a great app, especially for those not so keen on maths. It starts out by learning their skill set and then sets them questions based on their level. It continues to challenge them though so your youngest would gain confidence, which is a huge step when it comes to maths. I highly recommend it Kim. xxMorgan Princehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11929878897599036944noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4644650901305580314.post-38532960576424647302017-08-04T14:01:29.662+01:002017-08-04T14:01:29.662+01:00My teen loves maths but my youngest is not so keen...My teen loves maths but my youngest is not so keen....<br />This sounds like a great app. It might be something for us to think about as my girl has her SATs next year xKim Carberryhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16161778195020251767noreply@blogger.com
