Tiny Polka Dot

Tiny Polka Dot
Brain Child
Tillywig Award Winner 2017

Math for Love
3-8 yrs.

Tiny Polka Dot is a uniquely effective and pleasurable way for children ages 3 through 8 to learn essential mathematical concepts through play. The deck contains 6 distinct card designs, each of which nonverbally communicates the values 0 through 10 in ways so clever, varied and enticing that the simple act of leafing through them is both fun and enlightening. The instructions contain 16 easy-to-learn Tiny Polka Dot games, educational treasures that teach skills such as number names and order, one to one correspondence, addition, and subtraction, among others. Additionally, Tiny Polka Dot helps cultivate problem-solving, stick-to-itiveness, comparing and estimating, awareness of mathematical structure, and other habits that can have a lifetime impact. An included 'Guide for Grownups' does a fabulous job of providing parents and caregivers with ideas for ensuring children get the most of these joyously fun play experiences.
