For some kids, math is a big struggle. In the beginning, there's a lot to learn. They have to learn to count to 30 by kindergarten, 100 by 1st grade. They need to learn subtraction, addition and multiplication by 1st grade. They also have to learn how to tell time and count money. There's so many numbers swirling around in these little children's heads, it's no wonder they are confused at times. Meet the Multiples is a fun way for children to practice their math without even realizing they are learning.
Meet the Multiples designs plates, bowls and cups with numbers on them. There are a variety of sets to choose from. As your child grows up and learns their numbers you can move on to different sets. There are 3 different curriculum sets based on age.
The Early Years – Ages 2-5 years old
You'll receive a plate that counts by ones, a bowl that counts by twos, a cup that counts by five (shown as multiplication of 5) and plate that counts by tens.
The Middle Years – Ages 6 -8 years old (shown in pictures)
You'll receive a plate that counts by threes, a bowl that counts by fours, a plate that counts by 8s (shown as multiplication of 8) and a cup that counts by six (shown as multiplications of six)
The Later Years – Ages 9 – 11 years old
You'll receive a plate that counts by sevens, a plate that counts by twelves, a bowl that counts by nines and a cup that counts by elevens. All of these have multiplication shown in the center.
I really like this idea of making meal time a learning experience but also making it fun. Each plate, bowl and cup have a fun animal on them too. So feel free to purchase the whole collection no matter how young your child is. They will surely enjoy them even if they do not know their numbers yet.
