Some learning focus ideas of how to use this loverly numeracy tinker play tray set:

Learn to count the objects

Learn to be able to represent numbers to 20. This means that your child can link the number of objects to the numeral.

Children group the objects into sets and learn to count by ones to determine the size of each set. Younger children may be figuring out how to accurately determine the number of items while older children (school age) can work out sets (groups) of ten.

Learn to model subtraction by moving groups apart.

Use the objects to model multiplication and division by manipulating these as concrete materials to form equal groups as well as dividing amounts fairly.

Children learn to use mathematical language and link their mathematical ideas.

Children can learn to count backwards

Children can begin to start to solve simple everyday problems using number symbols. For example “if you had two pine cones and two balls there would be 4 things all together which you could write 2+2=4.

Begin to use comparative language such as ‘greater than’, ‘less than’ to describe groups of objects. Young children will learn to understand the concept of less with numbers lower than ten (milestone for early primary school aged children 5-6 years old) For example ask them to  identify “which is less 8 or 2?”
