The Language of Math
Teach your preschooler the language of math with
by Fat Brain Toys! This set of twelve whimsical wooden rods is taking the home education market by storm. From the one-inch ladybug cube to the twelve-inch giraffe rod,
are all you'll need to introduce your young child to math.
Introduce Math Vocabulary
Begin by having your preschooler sequence the Inchimals blocks from the shortest to the longest and introduce math vocabulary related to measurement. Because of its precise inch segments,
can also be used to guess and measure common items around the house. How tall is the glass? It is as tall as a tiger, or six inches tall. How long is a carrot? It is as long as a rabbit, or four inches long. Or build a corral for those LegoŽ horses and chat about perimeter.
Familiarize with Addition and Subtraction
Next, use the
to build a tower or form a train while you familiarize your child with addition and subtraction. He will quickly grasp that one frog (length) plus one monkey (length) equals one elephant (length). Or one ostrich (length) minus one mouse (length) equals one bear (length). See how easy it is?
Spiral-bound, Wipe-off Puzzle Book
To make it even easier,
comes with 100 write-on/wipe-off math puzzles in a spiral-bound book that explore counting, number value and recognition, addition, subtraction, equivalent sums, and multiple numbers. The colorful activities in the
book are designed to increase in difficulty, so your child will be challenged but not overwhelmed as he progresses through the book.
Best Hands-on Program We've Seen for Young Children
Thoughtfully designed with matching numerals and dot equivalents on opposite ends of each block,
is the best hands-on program we have seen for teaching math to young children. For children from three to eight years of age.

"I just rec'd an order from you, which included
. Let me tell you a little about why I am so impressed...
I'm the mother of 8, with 6 still at home. I homeschool my children, and 4 of them happen to have Down syndrome. Jenessa, my 10 yr old (with DS) is a whiz on the calculator, but has a hard time understanding how/why numbers added together equal another number. She can add 38 + 99 on her calculator and give you the correct answer, but it really has no concrete meaning for her. After playing with Inchimals
, I actually saw that she was UNDERSTANDING the addition concept, the 'why' and 'how,' and I was blown away by how quickly she picked it up!! WHAT AN AWESOME GAME!!! I can't wait to play it more, and introduce it to my younger children. I think it's going to help all of them grasp concepts that have alluded them for so long."
