Caterpillar's MathHouse Review and Giveaway


Another item that arrived in the midst of our redoing the flooring in our second floor is Carlito C. Caterpillar's MathHouse Games.

I wish I had found this product sooner.

This is a brilliant flip-chart of 20 math games ($23.95) that you can do at home (or at school) with your child (or students) to build foundations for addition, subtraction, less than, more than, multiplication, and division.

I wish I had found this product sooner.

The activities are real-life, hands-on, sensory-rich.

I wish I had found this product sooner.

Carlito C Caterpillar MathHouse Games does developmentally what we at my house need to go back and get, what I have tried so hard to give my girl (if you're familiar w/ my blog, you'll know she has autism and developmental delays) - a way to give her opportunities to experience the concept so that the symbols will make sense to her.

I wish I had found this product sooner.

The age-range is pre-school to early elementary, and I strongly urge parents of older children who are developmentally delayed to consider this product.

We use items from our house with a few printables from the web site - the games are really easy to set up and adapt.

Did I mention I wish I had found this product sooner?

I have one to give away - just comment on this blog before midnight of October 13th, 2011 to enter.

Thanks for sharing, Penny. My daughter, with autism and DD, has the biggest problems with math. This looks like a great resource!

Me! Me! This sounds like a great way to communicate the ideas to my newly-diagnosed 4 yr old.

I like this! It looks like something I could use with my typically developing 5 year old daughter as well as my 8 year old son with Autism. Best way to sneak in learning is when they don't know they're learning!

I would love to win the math game. I have a daughter with Down syndrome and I am always looking for items that would make learning for her easier.
