Active Learning with the combination of the Number Flips and the counting cubes.
The number flip is the same width as a cube.
Use in combination to explore number values, addition and subtraction.
Patterns appear that interest the child – a skyscraper, a stairs.
The child flips the number over while saying the number.
This is repeated with the blank face.
The flip makes a tap as it hits the board.
Very good for learning the numbers 1 to 10 and for a quick revision of the numbers before starting other work.
The combination of the movement and the sound reinforces the number sequence.
Communication: The child talks about something to do with the numbers.
A birthday, a house number, the number of Beethoven DVDs they have.
The use of the flips is extended using the counting cubes.
