Movable Alphabet: This child is practicing blending and forming words using the different letter sounds he has mastered box, hat, drum, sled and trumpet.
Forty-Five Layout: This child is becoming familiar with the names and relative sizes of the categories: units, tens, hundreds and thousands. He is also discovering that if he has 6 units and add 1 more unit than he will have 7 units.
Pumpkin Scrubbing: This child is using many motor skills while also remembering the order and sequence of each action to successfully pumpkin scrub, which naturally leads to the development of concentration.
