Being a childcare teacher, one of the first things I realized was that there’s always an opportunity for children to learn no matter where they are. The classroom is not the only place that a child should be learning. Whyy not in the bathroom, on the playground, in the car or even at the dinner table? No matter where you are, learning something new is always an option.
The “Mostly Math” tablecloth from Table-Time Look and Learn makes incorporating learning into meal time easy. When my kids sit down for a snack, I strike up a conversation about something on the table cloth and encourage them to figure out one of the problems. This educational tablecloth is one of those things that make you ask, “Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?” Sitting down with a workbook and pencil can become a boring routine. Children love when we switch it up with cool interactive learning materials like this one. Since it’s designed for kids from 2-6 years of age, there’s something on it for both of my children (ages 3 and 6) to learn.
Some of the lessons include:
- Comparisons, counting, addition, and subtracting
- Hours, days, months, and seasons
- Names of common and uncommon shapes
- Greater than and less than
- Plus one and minus counting
- Counting to 50 by 1’s, 5’s, and 10’s
- Counting backwards from 50
This amazing tablecloth is available in 72” x 52” for regular or oblong tables that seat 4 to 6. Made from PEVA, the creators not only thought of the educational needs of children, but also kept kids’ safety in mind. The material looks and feels like vinyl but is much safer and trustworthy. Cleaning up the PEVA can easily be done with a damp towel.
Use the Table-Time Look & Learn Mostly Math tablecloth to get your kid’s brain pumping at the dinner table. They are currently available online at TableTimeLookAndLearn.com, Amazon, Etsy and various stores.
