Galt Learn Maths
This Galt Learn Maths suitcase set is a fantastic activity to support children to develop their mathematics skills from the very beginning. One of the first things children will do when they start school is to learn to count, add and subtract. This set is designed to support children’s early years by making it as fun as possible.
The set includes 15 cards with counting and maths exercises. As well as 90 colourful number and symbol blocks. Altogether providing 83 exercises at 6 different levels! Furthermore, the game is self-corrective because of the special backs of the number and symbol blocks. The blocks will only fit if it is right! So, if it doesn’t fit, you will need to try again!
How does it work?
Open the suitcase and place a card on the yellow side or ‘playing field’ of the suitcase. Start with number one which teaches children to learn to count. Count the animals and put the number block down with the correct answer. Cards 3, 4 and 5 make counting a little more difficult. Look carefully to find all the matching vehicles1
At level 2, children need to find the right symbols and answers to the sum. For cards 7 and 8, children will need to first count the animals and then find the right symbol and answer.
At level 3, children will do subtraction sums. Count the pictures and work out the answer to the sum.
At level 4, children will need to find the missing number to make the equation match the answer.
At level 5, combine language with doing sums. Children will need find the right number to match the number spelled out as a word.
At level 6 – children will do multiplication sums for the first time and learn the 2-times/multiplication table
Furthermore, you can remove the exercise card and use the yellow playing field to create your own equations as children develop. The grooves ensure the tiles align.
Everything can be neatly stored in the suitcase, keeping all the pieces safe and making it ideal for to taking it along with you on your travels and days out.
Finally, this brilliant educational resource is suitable from age 4 years
