The goal of this game is to create awareness of the numbers 1-10, and their relationships with digits, introducing children to the notions of addition and subtraction. Additionally, this game develops fine motor skills, coordination, and the ability to systematize.

 

 

 

Using the Content of Numbers game:

 

  • When initially presenting the game to your child, show him or her how to create harmonious “stairs,” using the smooth coloured sides of the blocks. Start with a simple set of stairs, then add more blocks, arranging the blocks from low to high, then high to low.

  • The blocks can also be grouped in varying sequences, such as 10-5-9-4-8-3-7-2-6-1 or 10-1-9-2-8-3-7-4-6-5. If you withdraw one block from a sequence, does your child notice that the harmonic sequence is disrupted?

  • Challenge your child to group identically sized blocks to train estimation by sight.

  • Introduce your child to concepts of size (ex. long to short; short to long; short, shorter, shortest; long, longer, longest; etc.).

  • When starting to teach your child to count using the scored side of the blocks, we recommend beginning with only the first three blocks. Show your child the block marked one, and say “one,” then place the block with two marked boxes next and say “one, two.” Then do the same with the block containing three marked boxes. After showing your child how to count the boxes, ask him or her to give you a certain block, counting out the boxes before handing the block to you. Make sure to draw attention to the figure written on the blocks to encourage association between numbers and the figures which indicate them. Once you have taught your child to count to three on the blocks, only add blocks with greater numbers when you feel that your child is interested.

 

 

 

Working with this set of blocks allows your child the opportunity to discover addition and subtraction, obtaining necessary mathematics skills. Once you explain to your child how to use the blocks, he or she can then use them independently, discovering for him or herself that taking away and adding checkered blocks create greater or smaller sizes and numbers (ex. 1+1+1+1 is the same as 2+2 or 3+1, etc.).

 

 

 

This game is a great tool for children in primary school.
