The Cheerios Play Book: Book GIVEAWAY

Book of the Week GIVEAWAY: The Cheerios Play Book by Lee Wade

Why we love this book:

Children love when you combine food and learning! I’m sure many of you are familiar with the Cheerios book series. This week we are developing number concepts. We like the Cheerios book series because it encourages hands-on learning experiences. We begin all mathematics learning with manipulatives. Children must experience math before they move into the abstract memorization of mathematics concepts. While The Cheerios Play Book does not include numbers it is perfect for beginning conversations about numbers and one to one counting of numbers. Older children can skip count by 2’s, 3’s, 4’s and do simple addition and multiplication. And then the kiddos can eat all of the Cheerios! What child wouldn’t like that?

I love that Melissa and Doug clock! In fact, we got our youngest one after you had it on here a long time ago!

Miss Enigma loves her little clock. We use the numbers for many different counting activities.

We like A Number of Bears Hallmark pop-up book a lot. I have the same copy I read when I was a kid. It’s a bit tattered, but it’s holding up okay as long as no one tries to rip it apart!

Jeannine February 12, 2013 at 4:45 pm

There’s just something extra special about reading your children the same books that you loved as a child!

we don’t have a favorite yet….maybe this one will be :)

We recently found a cute book at the library that teaches you how to count to ten in Swahili. It’s called “We All Went On Safari” by Laurie Krebs.

Dawn Forbes February 14, 2013 at 8:10 am

We really enjoyed the Ten Little Ladybugs when the kids were younger.

Bernice Mattila Garcia February 16, 2013 at 7:44 pm

I loved sharing the little poems and songs to engage children in counting.. they didn’t know they were learning math :-)

Jeannine February 17, 2013 at 9:36 pm

I agree Bernice. Children love singing. It is a great way to reinforce learning and have fun!
