Children learn by doing

Research in education tells us over and over that hands on activities have more impact than verbal or written explanations alone. Simple manipulatives and pictures are used as key elements to illustrate math concepts.
Download our free guidelines and templates for games, outright playful and more serious activities to develop the math centers in your children’s brain. There are sample activities to develop number sense, visuo-spatial activities and templates. Have fun!
