Having Fun Constructing Numbers With Learning Resources

As a homeschooling mom, I am particularly fond of activities that are both educational and fun! Plus, if our kids can work on multiple skills in one activity, that is a bonus! I think whether you’re a homeschooling parent, teacher, or a parent encouraging your children’s education, these are features you can appreciate! This is why I appreciate Learning Resources.

Learning Resources offers a variety of hands-on educational products for young children. They make finding the best products for your children easy by offering shopping by Age, Grade, Category, Brand, Teacher Resources, and more. As a mom of three special needs kiddos, I love that they also have a Special Needs category that is broken down into both Skill Development and Learning Styles. I love that they recognize children with special needs have different needs!

For our review, we received Number Construction.

Number Construction number building activity

Number Construction is a fun number building activity ideal for Preschool age children ages 4+. Our preschooler (age 4) has recently taken a more involved interest in his numbers, so I knew he would love this. Plus, because of his special needs, I also knew he would benefit from the fine-motor skills he would be working on while building the numbers! I love that he can work on multiple skills at the same time. Our older two children (ages 6 and 8) also wanted to join in the number building fun as well. They said they were “helping” their little brother, but I think they were enjoying it, too! 😉

What we have been enjoying most about Number Construction is it isn’t a limited activity. It consists of 5 double-sided activity cards, and they can be used for a number of suggested activities. In fact, it includes eight different suggested activities! Each card gives step-by-step instructions on how to build each number. Building the number is a great activity in itself! Sometimes I then ask him (or them) to write the number ask him to confirm what number he just built.

The bolts are great for a variety of activities as well. We have mainly used them to place them on the “touch points” of the numbers. Then I encourage our preschooler to count them. It helps reinforce touch points for our older children as well. As learners that benefit from both hands-on and visual activities, this is a helpful activity! Of course, our preschooler has also decided the bolts are great for stacking. I always encourage free play, and he even counts them as he stacks them!

Learning Resources Number Construction

Other suggested activities include group activities, sorting the numbers, deconstructing the numbers, and more. Of course, you (or your children) can always think of other ways to use them as well! Number Construction is a great activity for young children. I would say children from preschool up to 1st Grade could really enjoy them!
