For the beginner mathematician.
Finally, a numeracy toy that grows with your child.
Our Difference - Versatility at its Finest
This beginning math toy set is not just a "number puzzle" for counting & number recognition for toddlers, but a more advanced kindergarten math material that teaches basic arithmetic to 4-6 year olds!
Counting Mastery & Number Recognition
Develop one-on-one correspondence between the written number and its value. Children learn how to count as they place each peg into the hole. They then have the opportunity to match, re-order, and test themselves.
The number order & ten frame guides provided in our flash-card set provide the opportunity for self-correction and working on basic arithmetic.
Odd & Even Number Identification
It is not too early to expose your child to the difference between odd & even numbers. The odd number panel boards have circle holes; even boards have square holes. Pegs likewise are shaped accordingly - circle-end rods only fit into the odd boards and square-end rods only fit into the even boards.
This design helps with pattern recognition and prepares children for addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc...
Ten Frame Panels to Develop Number Sense
Our number sorting toy promotes creativity, exploration, & the opportunity to create multiple touch-points for learning. You don't need to give this toy away after your child learns their numbers.
Our ten frame math design is designed to help children identify the number of things in a set by quickly looking at them vs. counting. This learning skill is called "subitizing" and is an important math skill in preparation for addition.
⭐ Developmental Benefits ⭐
✔️ Teaches counting & number correspondence
✔️ Teaches how to compose & decompose numbers
✔️ Teaches odd & even number differentiation
✔️ Boosts critical thinking skills & number sense
✔️ Hones fine-motor skills
WHY PEOPLE LOVE US
The counting pegs are an amazing way to teach your toddler or preschooler counting and also addition & subtraction and even & odd numbers. The peg holders are beautifully carved and made. We're loving it!
I love that it helps counting, number recognition, and can be used later for addition and subtraction! A great product I will certainly purchase again for gifts.
We love our Spin and Read blocks so I knew we had to grab these counting frames upon release. I paid $89 for wood counting trays in the past that are bigger, but they didn’t come with holes for pegs or anything to count with. So this is an amazing deal.
WHAT IS TEN-FRAME MATH?
Our number toy is based off the design of the ten-frame model. A Ten Frame is typically used in math for 4-7 year olds - kindergarten, 1st grade, and up. Ten Frames help children visualize number values. It is a graphic tool constructed by a rectangle made up of 2 rows of 5 squares. Ten Frames help give meaning to numbers as children learn how to compose & decompose numbers in relation to 5 & 10.
Ten frames develop the skill of subitizing (the ability to identify a number value by visually recognizing it as a whole instead of counting). For example, we subitize when we can recognize the numbers on a die without needing to count each individual dot.
Subitizing is the pre-requisite for addition. The holes on our Counting Pegs number panels are arranged in a controlled ten frame design. Once your child is able to correctly "subitize" the value of each board, they can then move on to addition, etc...
MOVABLE NUMBER PIECES & A LARGE HOLDING AREA FOR NUMBER COUNTERS
Having separate, movable number pieces provides 100x the learning and game potential! This allows for a totally customizable learning experience!
For younger learners who are still working on number correspondence, parents can place the matching number pieces before the child inserts the pegs. For those who are ready to be more independent, the number pieces can be used to order (mix)match & self-correct before/after pegging, with/without the panels.
We ensured our numbers were printed in a child-friendly font that easily differentiates between numbers such as 6 and 9.
Lastly, the large rectangular holding area provides flexibility in learning. This area can hold different types of math counters. You can use the included wooden number pieces alone, or you can use any counters of your choice (pebbles, beans, pom poms, etc...)!
