For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been living a quiet life. We haven’t done anything exciting. No music video shoots. No picnics by the lake. We haven’t even been running. The reason? We’ve all been unwell.
It can be frustrating having to slow down, especially when there are a million things we want to do. But there was one thing I did do while resting on the sofa: I went on a search for more real life maths resources. Yes, I’ve been hopping over the Internet, pinning links from here and there. And now that my girls are almost better, we’ve begun exploring some new games, podcasts, websites and videos.
In this week’s podcast, I chat about all the things I found. Some of them could also be described as geography resources.
Also, I discuss the following questions:
- Why do little kids love doing chores but older ones don’t?
- Should we thank our kids more often?
- Should we avoid talking to people about their grief? Perhaps it’s better not to upset them?
- What’s wrong with a lot of real life maths resources (in my opinion!)?
