Learn by Doing… Children’s Numbers & Shapes Flashcards Set
NUMBERS – 24 DOUBLE-SIDED CARDS
Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. That’s why these ‘Learn by Doing’ number flashcards have been designed to ensure your little one can reach their full potential. Count all the way to 110, do simple sums and learn to associate the numbers with the words and numbers with the dots.
In each pack are 24 double-sided Montessori style learning cards. Two sets of numbers from 0-9, to place cards next to each other and count to over a hundred! On the reverse (of one set) are the corresponding number of dots and, on the other set are the respective words (‘one’, ‘two’ etc) for spelling and association. The pack also contains a plus, minus, times, divide, and equals symbol, providing longevity of learning by helping to create simple sums. Included is a single card with all numbers from 1 up to 110! The simplicity of the dots act as a visual aid and, one of the suggested games includes placing favourite items over each dot to help them count. As the saying goes, ‘Smarties have the answer’ and using treats as a counting aid by placing them over the dots is a great incentive!
SHAPES – 24 DOUBLE-SIDED CARDS
The world is made up of so many shapes and, as a child, it’s fascinating to discover them. That’s why Happy Little Doers have introduced ‘Learn by Doing… Shapes’. The pack includes 24 double-sided Montessori style 2D and 3D shapes, shapes to trace, designed specifically to help learn and recognise the number of sides on each shape with a simple dot which multiplies in use of drawing from one point to the other. Learn through playing fun games referenced to explore shapes in everyday objects in nature and indoors. The pack also contains a prewriting card, designed to highlight developmental ages to encourage your child to draw and write independently.
