One of our missions here at Creative Play Resources is to inspire children with a lifelong love of STEAM — Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
These are essential skills that any child can use throughout their life — so learning them early is vital.
Supporting STEAM through play
It’s never too early to start — that’s why we offer Rainbow Pebbles. They are tactile manipulative toys that support the benefit of STEAM.
This book by Dr Paul Swan has been designed to help teachers gain the most from this resource.
Dr Paul Swan’s books complement educational toys in the brand’s collection, inspiring teachers — and parents and carers too — to aid children’s educational journeys.
In this edition, the links between the various activities and STEAM ideas are highlighted.
Making maths fun with Dr Paul Swan
The aim of Dr Paul Swan’s books and resources is to make learning maths fun, easy and natural, eliminating outdated ideas about numeracy and its appeal.
This book offers ideas for hands-on learning with fun activities that engage students to enjoy learning basic maths. Used in conjunction with Rainbow Pebbles, it’s an effective way to stimulate and inspire children just starting their numeracy journey.
Inside, you’ll find challenges for children to take on, inspiring a love for maths and guiding you on language to use and which skills these resources will help develop fine motor skills and analysis and appraisal skills.
