Wonder the Meerkat

Wonder is a real problem solver. Before tackling a problem, Wonder thinks very carefully about any obstacles that might get in its way and how it can be successful. Wonder likes to imagine what the outcome might look like when starting something so that it knows what it is working towards. Wonder takes a step-by-step approach in its planning and always finds an answer. 

Ideas to promote Resourcefulness:

  • Encourage lots of questions… What if? … How could?
  • Help children find ways of using lots of resources such as books, dictionaries or the internet.
  • Be your child’s learning hero: explain how you tried things out to find an answer.
  • Talk about different problems and different ways of approaching them to find a solution.
