Make math learning fun with this double sided learning board! It can grow with your child as they begin to grasp various math concepts over time.
The front side features a math wheel with numbers 0-9 and accompanying holes around it for pegs (comes with the kit). There is also plenty of space in the inner and outer rings for adding salt or using a paintbrush to 'paint' water directly onto the cherry hardwood. The front side also has a recessed pocket area, a slot at the top for flashcards and a small area at the bottom for storing a wooden stylus, pencil or paintbrush.
The backside of the board features a laser engraved hundreds board, another top slot for propping up flashcards or printables and a small area at the bottom for storing a wooden stylus, pencil or paintbrush.
This product comes with an optional kit that includes: a wooden scoop, wooden ring with white yarn, 10 pegs, 10 mini colored felt balls, paintbrush and a wooden stylus. PLEASE NOTE: the small kit pieces are not intended for use with a child under 3 years old.
This board measures 10.5 x 16 x 3/4", is crafted from cherry hardwood and left unfinished so that water may be 'painted' on for a fun way to practice numbers, shapes, etc. This tool can be used for so many things. Here are a few ideas to get you started!
Number recognition. Place a peg or marble next to a number and ask your child to either trace that number with the wooden stylus (try adding salt first into the inner circle) or paint it with water, or to count out that number of small objects (like small felt balls, for example). Alternatively, as you say a number aloud, ask your child to place a peg or marble next to that number on the board.
Operations. Choose which operation you'd like to focus on (multiplication, division, addition or subtraction). Fill the inner and outer rings with salt. Write a number in the inner circle using the wooden stylus. Say out loud the operation as you follow the numbers around the circle. Answers can be 'written' into the salt in the outer ring.
Geometry. Place all pegs into the holes around the circle. Tie a string to the small wooden ring provided and place it around the 0 peg. Starting at 0, skip count by 2s and loop the string around each peg as you go. Using the same method, invite your child to make other shapes. Try a star, pentagon, triangle, etc.
Hundreds Board (using the backside of the bar) Write a number from 1-100 on a 4x6" card and place it in the slot at the top of the board. Have your child use the paintbrush and some water to 'paint' the number of boxes on the hundreds board to visualize the quantity. For older children, this same method can be used to visualize multiplication.
