Did you know that you can develop your child's vocabulary and maths skills while playing and talking about sport? Here are just a few ways:
- use rich vocabulary, especially for the sports your child is most interested in
Did you see that crosscourt backhand? What an amazing winner!
- describe directions
The ball went past the goal / through my legs / over his head / onto the roof.
- talk about probability
What's the chance that we'll score a goal in the final minute?
- add and subtract time
How much time is left in the match?
- use fractions
How many quarters have they played already?
