COLOR AND COUNTING LOTTO

http://toysforlife.nienhuis.com/us/322800/color_and_countin

item #3.228.00

Objective:
The Color And Counting Lotto is designed to develop a
variety of skills, including color matching and number
recognition. In using the
Color And Counting Lotto, the child practices recognizing
numbers by counting the quantities and then associating
the proper numeral with them.
The lotto is also used to perform simple sums using the +
and = signs. The Color And
Counting Lotto provides opportunities for language
enrichment by teaching the names for each of the numbers
as well as associated mathematical terms.

Contents:
The Color And Counting Lotto includes ten pairs of tablets
plywood with colorful scenes silkscreened on them. There
are 60 wooden tablets with numerals, signs and dots
printed upon them for use with the various activities. The
material and instructions are contained in a four
compartment beechwood box with lid.

QUANTY

http://toysforlife.nienhuis.com/us/326000/quanty.htm?

item # 3.260.00

Objective:
Children who play with Quanty become familiar with:
- the concept of the quantities from one to and including
five.
- comparison of quantities.
- the combination quantity-symbol.
- learning to recognize quantities at a glance (universal
quantity perception).

Contents:
Quanty contains:
- one box with lid (31 x 31 x 5 cm), lid also serves as
matrix field.
- a series of wooden fruits and vegetables.
- 40 boards with pictures of fruits and vegetables, hands,
colours and figures.
- a pentagon for placing the boards.
- two spinners.
- ten exercise cards.
- instructions.

Possibilities:
Requirements:
- the wooden fruits and vegetables and the boards with
pictures of the fruits and vegetables.
Place the fruits and vegetables in a row. Place the boards
on which the same fruits and vegetables are shown next to
them. This need not be in the same sequence. What is
involved is the recognition of ”sameness”.

Requirements:
- the boards with pictures of hands.
Players can use their own fingers to imitate what is shown
on the boards, saying the
numbers out loud.

Requirements:
- the boards with pictures of hands, fruits and vegetables
and figures.
Place the boards in the proper sequence from one to and
including five. Combine the pictures of hands with figures
and place the boards with fruits and vegetables next to
them.

Requirements:
- the pentagon, the boards with fruits and vegetables,
figures, pictures of hands and coloured squares.
Arrange the boards around the pentagon:
- according to type, arbitrarily or in sequence.
- the same quantities together.
- figures and/or hands around the pentagon, with the
quantities.

Requirements:
- the spinners, the wooden fruits and vegetables and the
boards with pictures of
fruits and vegetables.
The spinners can be used individually or in groups. Game
using the spinner with fruits and vegetables: place the
wooden fruits and vegetables in front of you or distribute
them, if more than one child is playing. If two children
play together, each receives two pieces of fruits or
vegetables. One piece is not used. For three, four or five
children, each chooses a fruit or vegetable.
Taking turns: turn the spinner with fruits and vegetables
and try to collect the boards that contain your fruits and
vegetables. If the part showing all the fruits and
vegetables, called the joker, comes up, you’re lucky. You
may
take whatever you want. The game can also be played with
both spinners. In that case, the exact quantities must be
collected. The picture of the fist on the spinner stands
for ”tough luck”. This is a nil and means you have to skip
a turn!

Matrix:
Requirements:
- the matrix (the lid), the exercise cards and all boards.
Place the boards on and beside the matrix as you see fit.
The children give themselves an assignment and carry it
out. The exercise cards are designed to encourage working
independently: the assignment that children can carry out
independently is shown on the front side. Selfchecking is
possible. The solution can be found on the rear side of
the exercise card!

Playing in Groups:
Requirements:
- the spinner with fruits and vegetables and hands plus
all boards.
Group game, under guidance of the teacher. The boards are
distributed. The teacher first spins the spinner with
fruits and vegetables and then the spinner with hands. The
child holding the tablet in question turns it in. The
square on the spinner with all the fruits and vegetables
together means: all children may hand in a board of their
choice. The square on the spinner with the fist (nil)
means: spin again, nil is nothing!
In this way children learn very clearly the meaning of
nil. This game gives teachers good insights into the
children's grasp of numerical concepts. The game is over
when one of the children has got rid of all his or her
boards, or when all boards have been used.

Requirements:
- the matrix field, the wooden fruits and vegetables, the
boards with fruits and vegetables, the boards with the
hands and both spinners.
This game can be played with two to five children. The
matrix is placed with the
wooden fruits and vegetables at the top and the hands to
the left. Place the spinners in front of the matrix, with
the boards distributed around the table. Taking turns, the
children may now turn a spinner with fruits and vegetables
and a spinner with a number and place the board in
question in its proper
place. The winner is the first one to fill a complete row
(horizontally or vertically).

COUNTING LOTTO

HTTP://TOYSFORLIFE.NIENHUIS.COM/US/323000/COUNTING_LOTTO.HT

item #3.230.00

Objective:
The Counting Lotto develops skills in counting as well as
providing practice in associating
number quantities and numerals from zero to nine. The
versatility of the Counting Lotto allows the child to
progress in a series of activities from simple counting of
colourful objects to abstract recognition of numbers. The
Counting Lotto is well suited for young children.

Contents:
The Counting Lotto contains:
- a beechwood box with lid (38 x 20 x 5.5 cm).
- four boards of birch plywood with four rows of
silkscreened pictures on each, depicting a group of items
to be counted, from zero to nine.
- one set of printed numerals on wooden squares from zero
to nine for associating
to the quantities.
- one set of wooden squares with dots for the quantities
zero to nine printed upon them.
- instructions.

How to use the Counting Lotto:
The child may begin by counting the number of objects on
the board and associating these with the squares with
dots. Later the child can count the dots on the squares
and associate these with the corresponding numbers. Group
games can be played where one child selects a number and
the other child finds the corresponding numeral. Let the
children make up their own games using the Counting Lotto.
