Numicon builds a deep understanding of maths through a multi-sensory approach, developing children’s fluency, reasoning and problem-solving.
The First Steps with Numicon at Home Kit has been designed for parents and carers of pre-school children (aged 3–5) to help with their children’s maths learning during the Foundation Stage and early Key Stage 1, with a series of clearly-illustrated activities and games that introduce early ideas about number and arithmetic.
It contains: 3x Numicon Threading Laces, 1x Numicon Baseboard, 1x Numicon Feely Bag, 1x Zig Zag Book Number Line, 1x Numicon 0-10 Numeral Cards, 52x Numicon Coloured Pegs, 32x Numicon Shapes, 1x Numicon Baseboard Picture Overlays, 1x First Steps with Numicon at Home Activity Book.
The introduction to the First Steps with Numicon At Home Activity Book explains the important maths concepts that underpin the fun and simple-to-follow activities, and important maths vocabulary that children need to use and understand is also included in the book.
Extra apparatus is available separately. Not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts.
