My kids asked me to buy them some Fun Division Worksheets. I was skeptical that they would do well with a worksheet that involved clapping. My assumption was based on my experience with other worksheets in the past. I was afraid my children might become too bored with it.
I thought my girls would get bored after the first few repetitions of time to play. It turned out I was wrong. After they spent some time playing with the worksheet and began to use it, they were captivated by the concept.
It took my girls a while to get into the idea of time plays. I was shocked when they started to play with it and were so excited that they were excited. I was happy that I went along with the experiment and found them a good time play for their children.
I was also impressed with how quickly my girls mastered the idea of time plays. They loved playing with the worksheet and making up their own time plays. It is great for parents to see that young children can be enthralled by time plays and feel such enthusiasm about doing them. It is a win-win situation.
The time plays are fun because you can use the worksheet for many things. You can use it to practice math or handwriting skills, for fun, to help your child develop different types of problem solving skills. I have even used it as a very entertaining time play.
My daughters have started to put together time plays where they are learning a variety of math skills. They have discovered the art of counting numbers. It is amazing to see how quickly they build up the concepts and use it to do various math projects.
When I first started to teach my girls about time plays, I was excited. Then I realized that they had been practicing this concept for years. I was right about the idea being boring. I had underestimated how much my kids had gotten from it.
For me, time plays are educational. I can see how a lot of adults would look at the concept of time plays and think they are a waste of time. However, I think time plays are an excellent time to play for your children.
