1st March World Maths Day

World Maths Day is a highly organised occasion, where students aged between 5 and 18 from all over the world unite in a quest to set a world record in answering mental arithmetic questions. But, there is nothing to stop you celebrating Maths Day in a smaller, more localised way at your school or in your classroom. As it is my aim to add children's books to everything, today I am suggesting Counting Chickens.

This beautiful book uses the Flensted mobiles as their inspiration for arithmetic and counting fun. Danish couple, Christian and Grethe Flensted created elegant mobiles. Their son has continued the tradition. With this book readers can count from one to ten and back again, count by twos and threes and find solutions to simple word problems. The images are glossy, colourful and tactile.
