Please welcome Erin from The Usual Mayhem who joins our ABCs and 123s letter and math series today sharing this super idea for making multi-sensory Montessori-style sandpaper number.
This dice game to help children learn number bonds to ten is so simple to set up and builds really important basic math skills that will help your child with their mental math. The idea is from Anna of In The Playroom, who joins us today as part of our ABCs and 123s letter and math activities series.
