numbers and counting
Familiarizing students with numbers is a vital component of building their comfort with them, so children will be prepared to use them later in more complex arithmetic operations. Our assortment of related products at Really Good Stuff® supports kids' number fluency in a variety of engaging, challenging and budget-friendly ways.
Fun, Interactive Games with Numbers
Starting with students in pre-K and kindergarten, Really Good Stuff® has numerous posters, number lines and magnetic sets that teachers can display in their classroom to introduce and acquaint children with numbers. Our EZ-Stick Jumbo Number Line is a bright-colored, engaging set of durable, long-lasting decals that kids have fun walking on as they count or solve simple addition and subtraction problems.
Younger students will also love the Aquatic Counters, a set of 84 manipulatives shaped like 14 different fresh- and saltwater animals. Kids can count these plastic figurine manipulatives, or sort them by animal, color or other categories. These counters are also fun for imaginative play, making them ideal for home use as well.
Durable Products for Continuous Number Practice
Slightly older students will enjoy the Make a Splash™ 120 Mat Floor Game which is an engaging, interactive way to explore number concepts up to 120. Included with the mat are three inflatable cubes — two with digits zero through nine, and one with +10, -10, +1 and -1 — as well as cards to cover numbers, and frames that highlight numbers, add or subtract 10 (+/-10), or add or subtract one (+/-1). The possibility for number games and problem-solving is limitless, but the included guide suggests CCSS-aligned ways to use the set.
Our magnetic whiteboard products, like the Double Ten-Frame Dry Erase Board Set and 100 Grid Two-Sided Dry Erase Boards are versatile tools to provide students as much practice as they need with numbers and number operations. The Jumbo Magnetic Ten-Frame Set comes with six ten-frames and 74 magnetic circles for kids to easily see and manipulate as they work with numbers. Students get visual and tactile reinforcement while practicing with this set to learn important base-10 skills.
Any of these Really Good Stuff® individual-use items or sets can be utilized to demonstrate number concepts to children via the internet, in order to accommodate remote or distance learning. Parents are also encouraged to purchase products of their choice so they can strengthen their children's skills in math at home.
