Counting Hands is a versatile product that can be used at different developmental levels, and to practice many different skills.
By using the Counting Hands children are sharpening their visual discrimination, which will later help them recognise differences among letters, words and sentences. They are also using mathematical thinking skills in a playful way. They can also practice sequencing and lacing activities, counting and matching, graphing, and sorting into groups. There are activities in the teacher guide to extend children learning further when necessary.
