Mathematical operations for children aged 8-13.
Children were able to compare their weight with that of a dog from different breeds, make different mathematical operations using bags of animal food, read numbers and work with numbers having real working materials in front of them, give directions-left-right. Advantage: involving real life issues and objects made them thing more critically and practically and solve the requested tasks. Also they learned from one another working in groups.
If a bag of food for chickens is 9 kilos, how much are 5 bags?( for
multiplication table at children aged 9-11)
If a dog eats a bag of dog food of 14 kg in a week, how much does it eat a day?
What’s the difference between the weight of a Doberman( 45 kg) and a Yorkshire terrier( 3 kg) ? (
take away operation)
How many times is a Yorkshire smaller than a Doberman
Compare your own weight to a Doberman( for example).Slide10

Improving fine motor skills for children aged 8-10Slide12
Children are attracted to animals and respond more easily when they are exposed to real life facts and familiar things
Most of them have animals at home, so they are used to getting into contact with them. Educators have just to use this for educational purposes and attract children to school activities, especially children with special needs , inclined to misbehavior or with emotional problems
school activities more easily in groups through collaboration.
Children react positively to visual stimuli ; they improve their skills more easily when they use all their senses( sight, touch, hearing).Slide13
