Learning to count and add/subtract is one of the first things children will do when they enter school years, and is a key component of Early Years/Foundation stage education. This First Maths set has been designed to support this stage by helping children to learn in a way which makes it as much fun as it is educational.
This set includes magnetic picture pieces, a sums board, numbers and a counting board so that there are various visual aids to support and stimulate. Children can count pictures of familiar items like bananas or cars, which, by using fun illustrations, make it a more playful exercise than using numbers alone, and the inclusion of a dry-wipe pen to copy numbers helps make this an activity that can be repeated over and over again.
Turning education into a fun activity can really help children to master basic literacy and numeracy much more quickly, be it at home or in the classroom. This new magnetic first writing set has been designed to do just that, to make learning an interactive experience and a bit of fun too.
The read and write letters and words pack is perfect for children in the Early Years/Foundation stage of the curriculum, those who are just starting out on their educational journey. Matching letters with pictures, and learning the alphabet are made much easier when correcting any mistakes can be done instantly and in a way that encourages children to try again as many times as it takes.
