Home Learning with Treasures From Jennifer
Part 1: An Introduction to Treasures From Jennifer Frames and Coins
By Kate Kwijas for Oskar's Wooden Ark | June 27, 2022
Treasures From Jennifer is a family-run business that specialises in handcrafted wooden toys that promote hands-on learning. These educational treasures are as beautiful as they are functional - ideal for supporting a Montessori or Waldorf curriculum.
For this three-part blog series, we have teamed up with teacher and mum of three, Kate Kwijas (@exploringlifetogether_) to explore the Treasures From Jennifer range of frames and coins. Kate will show us some of the many ways that she and her boys use these versatile resources in their home learning and play, including counting, creating patterns, loose parts play, practicing mathematical equations, word play and more.
In Part One, Kate introduces us to the variety of Treasures From Jennifer frames, coins and accessories available from Oskar's Wooden Ark, as well as some of the ways that they can be introduced to children of different ages. Stay tuned for Parts Two and Three, where Kate will share even more activity ideas, focused on supporting Literacy and Numeracy.
