Your child moves from simple to more complex activities and isolates one difficulty at a time, making each activity the foundation for the following one. This allows for manipulation and repetition, taking into account the process of learning. This process has three phases: presentation of the activity, the child’s individual work and repetition and verification of the child’s own knowledge.
The activities are divided into major groups of exercises:
- Numbers 1 to 10, using number rods, sandpaper numbers, spindle boxes, numbers and counters and the memory game.
- The Decimal System, using beads and cards, the function of decimal system, formation of large numbers, collective exercises (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), stamp and dot game.
- Linear Counting & Skip Counting, introducing teens and tens with beads, Seguin board 1 and 2, linear counting 100 and 1000 chain and skip counting.
- Memorisation of Essential Number Combinations, using the addition and subtraction snake game, addition and subtraction strip board and charts, multiplication tables with bead bars, multiplication and division board and charts.
- Passage to Abstraction, using the short bead frame.
