Review and Giveaway: Child Up Early Mathematics – CLOSED Learning

Math and Logic #2
Math and Logic #1

My Experience

Child Up learning logic math cards are a wonderful resource that is great for parents to use to teach their children mathematics. When we started using the math and logic cards my 2 year old kids could already count to 20, and recognize numbers from 1-10, but they did not understand how to count objects or add and subtract.

The cards are for boys & girls – from 1 to 5 years old. The cards teach children to identify their numbers and learn basic arithmetic and understand the concept of zero. On the back of the zero cards is a picture of a jungle without any animals. To get my kids to understand what zero means I showed them the first card, which showed about 10 animals on it, then I showed them the back of the zero card. The jungle was the same, but there were no animals. I asked my children what was difference between the zero card and the jungle picture card? They said, “There are no animals.” 
“Correct!” I said, “there are zero animals in this picture. What does zero mean?”
Together they replied, “Zero means “nothing.”

Using physical objects along with the cards helped keep my children engaged longer than 10 minutes, and it helped reinforce the concepts. I used different color blocks that represented the numbers on the cards. I also used teachable moments throughout the day to reinforce what they learned on the cards. For instance, when I served a sandwich for lunch, I cut it in half and showed them 1 piece + 1 piece = 2 pieces. When I used the cards alone my children (2 years old) were only interested in saying the number and looking at the pictures briefly.

The cards helped lay the foundation for adding and subtracting. At first I counted the backs of the cards with them explaining that all of the animals on the back equaled a certain number. Then I explained that if you separated the animals by what they were, each group would be a different number. This concept was also reinforced by using tangible objects.

They learned to count objects rather than just recite the numbers. The cards really help children enjoy learning about numbers. The animals are well illustrated and having fun with the cards and your child makes all the difference.

Overall, the cards teach children more than numbers, on the back of the main color card are facts about the animals pictured. The cards are the beginning of many other lessons as well, just be creative.
