It is small, it is portable, it is a little Maths Box!
This simple little Maths box can be used at home(doing homework), a school(working on sums in class) or even in the car(as a busy box, to keep your child occupied and learning at the same time)! We will be using it mostly for homework since we still need that visual reminders when doing sums. (We still use this Whiteboard Hack, genius!)
What you need:
- Small box(soap type box) similar to this http://amzn.to/2pvMqc5
- Foam Numbers
- Mini Pompoms
- Dry Erase Marker
This box can be used for plus and minus sums, or, one could use it for simply counting out pompoms to correspond with numbers(my 4 year old enjoyed this as I told him it is his “homework”),skip counting, patterns etc.
