Mathematics not left out in the adoption of the "Activity Based Low Cost, No Cost initiative" at the just concluded OMEP Lagos Continuous Professional Development programme. Teachers used toilet roll tubes, empty cartons, yarns, cotton wool, cardboards, markers glue, bottle covers etc to recreate instructional resources for math lessons. OMEP is creating awareness about creative use of our environment and waste materials in the teaching, learning and play experiences of children. Implementation of OMEP ESD Rating Scale , the Activity- Based Low Cost, No Cost initiative & adopting the 7 RE Words for Sustainability.

Demonstration of the 7 REs. Children participating in Re- creating their environment.

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE 7 ‘RE’- WORDS FOR SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH THE ESD RATING SCALE & ACTIVITY- BASED LOW COST, NO COST INITIATIVE.

1) RE USE– Make more use of old things ( Waste to active learning, play & resilience)

2) RE DUCE– We can do more with less ( at ‘Low Cost and obviously No Cost’)

3) RE CYCLE & RE CREATE– Someone else can use it again or create something new out of old ones ( Low cost, No Cost’ use of old tyres, plastics, bottle tops etc  to redesign play ground, play room, create Instructional resources etc)

4) RE DISTRIBUTE – resources can be used more equally and made accessible to every child even in remote villages, low income homes  etc.

5) RE SPECT – the rights of the child ( to quality education, play, participation in decisions concerning her rights etc) 

6) RE FLECT – on the cultural differences in the world ( educating on diversities, embedding cultural values, indigenous games, stories, morals to education,  empowering educators in reflective practices, ensuring ‘No Child is left behind’)

7) RE THINK – people today value other things ( redirecting people’s values for other people, climate, education, peace, safety, security, gender equality etc)
