One portion that my husband and I have been working on more and more is her numbers. Not only do we want her to be able to count, but identify the number, and be able to write the number. So I was excited to try out one of Learning Resources newest products, Number Construction.
This is an awesome system that allows your child to follow cards (included with the kit) and create the numbers. In addition to putting together the number, they included “counters” on each number after its constructed to help with counting. It is a GREAT system that we love to sit and work on with my daughter.
Inside each box you will find:
- 50 pieces (30 lines and curves and 20 bolts or as we call them “counters”),
- 5 double-sided Activity Cards with step-by-step directions, and
- a Guide
The activity cards are great and easy to follow. My 3 year old (almost 4) had no issue getting the cards out and following along. They did a great job creating this system with colors, shapes and more to help make the process fun and enjoyable for our little ones.
After my daughter selects a car, we have her get the needed parts out of the box and set them out so we can visually follow along with the card to identify how to construct the number.
The numbers are fairly easy to put together. The first few my daughter needed help, but quickly she got it down and became a wiz at her new toy. Little did she know that she was learning while playing.
After she constructed a number we would have her trace it with her finger a few times to feel the shape of the numbers. Then we would have her try to “draw” it out on paper. This was a great way to work with her on her numbers and have some good quality time at the same time.
