Stack the step tower to learn ordinal numbers through quantity, dimensions & colours.
The toy is a beautiful stacking tower that uses colours, width and height to form different steps ranging from numbers 1 to 10. Stacking these steps help children connect dimensions with quantity. This toy also enhances thinking ability and encourages creative exploration.
Set includes a base with 10 sides, 55 wooden prisms in 10 different colours shaped like a slice of pie, a detailed instruction manual all packed in a beautiful Skola Doodle box. Size of Stacked Pieces: 19.5 cm x 22.5 cm
Once children are done with this toy, they can start exploring the next journey in the Land of Numbers (See How).
Step Tower helps children develop ordinal counting skills. It also assists the child in getting a deeper understanding of the correlation between dimensions and sizes of objects and quantities. The vivid pieces encourage children to explore colour as a property in a creative and imaginative manner. By stacking the objects based on their sizes, children hone their fine motor skills. This toy hence successfully fuses the understanding of sensorial properties of colour and size with numbers.
The child builds the tower and counts the number of pieces from 1 to 10. You could also play counting games like asking the child to give you a set of 7 pieces. As time passes, the child identifies sets by colour.
Take any one set of steps of a single colour. Introduce names in 3 stages
a. Introduction: Give names clearly . Eg. First , second, third (say from big to small)
b. Recognition: Ask the child to identify which piece is second
c. Confirmation: Ask, “What is this?” Child answers “Second”
Introduce all ordinal numbers first to tenth over a period of few days."
