I have just bought a new book called Marshmallow Math - early math for toddlers, preschoolers and primary school children.

It has lots of short chapters with some very good ideas for teaching math concepts without using worksheets.  It is very practical and I haven't started using but I think it looks great - looking forward to getting stuck in.

We also have Numicon which I also really like as a manipulative way of learning maths concepts.  It is supposed to be from age 3 up but I have been using for some time (with close supervision so she does not swallow any of the smaller pieces!)  We are moving very slowly through the different stages - it is more like a game or puzzle than a curriculum.  But I have certainly seen a development in DDs understanding of how they fit together and she started making a pattern today for the first time.

Hi Sidonia

We got the first steps with numicon at home kit:

We are UK based so for once shipping costs were very reasonable  LOL

My DD is now 31 months but we've been using the kit since she was 24 months. It's not enough on it's own in the long term but a really useful addition to other teaching approaches. It specifically suggests avoiding counting so the child comes to appreciate the different numbers through use of the manipulatives.

Thank you  Izp 11 for your answer.
Is there anyone that has experience with the  Numicon math program?
I would be grateful for any feedback.

The book depository has the best price for US. I too am trying to figure out which kit to start with.

My daughter has been using this site beestar for 2 years. The math programs are full of all real life problems, challenging stuff to help kids thinking. My child loves and supports it. I think it is nice and easy to use. Plus, beestar is for primary kids. I think it will help you guys later. big grin

I've used a variety of websites/workbooks for my students from Singapore Math, Beestar, Khan, Kumon etc., and each of them have their own positive qualities. I think that KA definitely helps when students need to remember quickly how to approach math problems. Kumon definitely helps with drill practices. However, neither of these options provide students with a reward system other than Beestar. Beestar is a combination of both teaching math in a more creative way combined with giving students a sense of accomplishment. Beestar is definitely helpful for students that have been struggling with math and need a good confidence boost.

I used Khan Academy, IXL and StudyPug Math now.  Surprisingly, for kids, maybe youtube videos can also work.  I used Math Antics to very resounding success with my very young one.

I think when they are younger, videos and engaging content that entertains works.   But as they get older, concept videos and detailed practice gets better results. 

And of course, I have to be taught at the same time to be able to teach back! rolleyes

I've found that using Maths based games is always a great starting point. Making learning fun can make it seem as if you aren't learning at all. Then when you child is a bit older (around 3-4),
 i've found using sites like and can be great ways to explore new ways of learning, to find which way suits your child best.

Hello All,

I am really interested in teaching our boys math with the Soroban.

I find that engaging tech PLUS practical tangible application works best for theirs learning style.

Does anyone know what this program is?   I have search everywhere and can not find it.

Thank You!

Thanks guys! Very useful info.
I read some reviews about the Marshmallow Math book and also another one - Preschool Math at home by Kate Snow. Not sure which one should I go for.
Does anyone have experience with these 2 books and what's your thoughts on them?
Thanks. smile

We've used workbooks and websites and we like using websites more to help save trees. A great one we like to use is Beestar.
