When the husband and wife teacher duo, Elle Collective, thought about the two most fundamental areas of Mathematics, Place Value was one of the clear winners. Unfortunately, this area is often one of the ones that students struggle the most with throughout their schooling. And so, this tactile & engaging way of practising place value (and so much more) was created.
Elle Collective's counting stacker can be used in many ways! It has been designed to perfectly use in conjunction with Elle Collective'sNumberDots and ChalkDots.
Opportunities for Play/Learning
Counting & matching to numerals using NumberDots and/or ChalkBoard Dots
Ordering values eg. biggest to smallest
Place value (sticks represent Thousands, Hundreds, Tens & Units/Ones)
Complex addition using the sticks to show place value eg. (3 tens + 4 units) + (8 tens + 2 units) = 1 hundred, 1 ten & 6 units.
Use rings as loose parts to thread or create patterns on a flat surface!
Fine motor skills
Visualise concepts such as on/off, up/down, taller/shorter etc.
