Maths. It’s a school subject you either love or hate. But what if there was a way learning certain mathematical equations, say, Times Tables, could be fun, informative and comfortable? Forget the table charts, the nine times table counting on your fingers, and the time-consuming twelves which require children to add multiples of ten and two…
We want to introduce you to the Times Table Wristband:
A silicone band which is durable for playtime, lesson time, and home life, (it’s also water resistant for bath-time learning) the Times Table Wristband helps children ages 5 to 11 learn their tables wherever they are. From tables 1 to 12, the bands sport a different colour for each set, with simple black or white font, making them easy for children to locate and read.
Achievement colours bronze, silver and gold are used for tables, four, eight and twelve to mark a child’s progress, though these are not worded specifically for goal purposes, so children do not feel pressured in reaching a certain stage. However, if you wish to use these for target purposes, there is a little picture on all three to make them special.
School can be a daunting experience for any child. Structured lessons, limited playtime and eating dinners on demand: it’s tiring work. The addition of homework is another overload on children. As an effect of introducing school to a child’s life, especially five-year olds, compulsory Key-Stage subjects such as Maths, are often met with challenge or resistance. With equations on their wrists, children have the security of learning their tables in a fun way at their own pace and do not feel pressured into learning on demand. If you have a particularly shy child who doesn’t want to showcase the tables when out of the classroom, silicone wristbands can also be flipped inside out and worn as a plain band.
Though the focus has been on introducing these wristbands to schools, they are also a great addition to home schooling, tutoring, or early learning groups
Bands come in youth sizes and are sold individually so you can pick and choose which tables your child would need a helping hand with.
