Debra and I had a great three days at the Columbus Convention Center sharing our products with preschool teachers. We now have mats to use with the Bears and Chairs. We have created five different mats. The first is a game to help young children with counting, one-to-one correspondence and cardinality. We have a two-sided mat with five beds on one side and ten beds on the other. Children take the bears and use them to place in the beds. We are helping the young child see the relationship to five and ten. Our second mat is a play mat that can be used to retell the story of "The Three Bears." The next three mats were created so young children from pre-kindergarten through grade two can work on problem solving by acting out the story. We have a cave, table and zoo mat. These mats are two-sided and can be used to help students with all of the different types of addition and subtraction problems that are listed in the new Common Core Standards.
Check our product page to see what they look like.
We are off to Philadelphia next week to share our products with teachers who will be at the NCTM conference.
