When the time comes I will need all-the-help-I-can-get to introduce my girl to numbers and math concepts. There´s a reason why I chose to write and communicate as a profession and why I need a calculator to figure out tips.
I really don´t want to pass along that fear of numbers to her. Ingenio´s Math-o-matic manages to make learning numbers fun by disguising it as a colorful puzzle/game.
You can start out using it just to teach your kid numbers from 1-20 using the individual cards. They´re all two-sided and bilingual. On one side there´s just a large, colorful number. On the flip side is the word for that number in both English and Spanish as well as objects to count.
Once your child is ready to start learning basic math concepts you can introduce the 22 math cards which are basically a rectangle with an equation that´s missing one number or sign. Your child needs to use her budding math skills to “fill in the blank.” In the process, she’ll be learning number sequencing, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Just like that.
Y mamá? Well, she gets a little, and much-needed, brain boost along the way.
All of Ingenio´s bilingual toys are available only via Amazon for now. Of course, the best way to get them is via La Tiendita.
