Activities for Home Learning
Telling the Time
Time is one of those things many children find tricky, but this game will help your child tackle this topic.
What you need to play:
How to play:
1. Try drawing a clock on the ground with chalk.
2. Then, get your child to use their body to make the clock hands of the time you call out. They could show just the hour or minute hands by lying straight, or they could use their body to make the hour and the minute hands, with their legs (the longer part) being the minute hand and their torso (the shorter part) the hour hand. Take photographs!
Up the game
1. add an inner circle of 5 minute intervals
2. call out the hour/minute and players runs to place
3. draw the hour/minute hand and ask the time
4. ask your learner to draw the hour/minute hand whilst you call out the time
Multiplication 4 In A Row
What you need to play:
How to play:
1. Each player needs a set of coloured counters or different coins (2ps vs 10ps as an example).
2. Make a grid containing the answers to the times tables being worked on (choose which times table you want your child to tackle) and a set of cards with the multiplication questions.
3. Each player takes it in turns to pick a card, work out the answer and cover the answer with their counter. The first player to cover four in a row is the winner.
Multiplication Spinner Game
1. Make your own, or download and print the free multiplication games printable packet. It includes 20 free multiplication worksheets for different levels, from beginners to advanced.
2. Choose the fact family or method that you want your learner to practice and distribute that sheet.
The packet includes simple times tables as well as the box method.
3. Give each learner a pencil and a paper clip to create a simple spinner. Spin for a problem to solve or numbers to multiply, depending on the worksheet.
Visualizing what fractions represent is easier (and a lot more fun) when you use LEGOs! Lay them out side by side or build towers. No matter how you play, this is a sure-fire hit. Take photographs!
It’s hopscotch—with a fraction games twist! Draw a hopscotch board on the ground (or outline one with tape on your home). Label the squares with fractions instead of whole numbers. Your learner throws a marker and jump to where it lands, then name the equivalent fractions for that square.
Fraction Spinner Game
1. Make your own, or save and print the free fractions worksheets printable packet.It includes 11 free fractions worksheets for different levels, from beginners to advanced. Plus: answer keys!
2. Choose the fraction set or skill that you want students to practice and distribute that sheet.
The packet includes games to help recognize and write fractions, produce and color fractions, practice fraction equivalents, and work on fraction-decimal conversion.
3. Give the player a pencil and a paper clip to create a simple spinner. Spin for a fraction to write, reproduce, or convert, depending on the worksheet.
4. As your learner becomes more confident with their fractions skills, give them the more challenging fractions worksheets.
Make a template and then get out and about to see if your learner can spot right, acute and obtuse angles in their environment. As an extension, why not integrate some discussion about the use of horizontal, vertical, perpendicular and parallel lines.
1. Buy, or make a pizza with toppings that have lines of symmetry. Ask your learner to count how many lines of symmetry the pizza has.
2. Cut your pizza into slices to show different angles, including the whole (360°).
3. Add vertical and horizontal lines with bread sticks, carrot sticks or pepper strips.
4. Discuss and record fractions of the pizza, sharing what happens if you take or replace pieces of the whole
