The 100 puzzles in the book are divided into 8 chapters. Each chapter practises a different set of math skills.
Here’s the breakdown of some of the many math skills your child will be working on as they work through the activities:
Chapter 1 – Numbers and Counting (Numbers up to 10)
This first chapter focuses on numbers to 10. In doing this set of puzzles, children will see the numbers to 10 show in lots of different ways – ten frames, groups of objects, written numerals, dot patterns – which will help them build number sense. Fun themes in this chapter include Jack and the Beanstalk, ladybugs, and school buses.
Chapter 2 – Numbers and Counting (11-20)
This chapter moves beyond 10 and helps your child gain confidence with numbers 11 to 20. Children will practise counting up to 20 objects, ordering numbers and writing them too. They’ll also tackle puzzles where the numbers to 20 are broken down into tens and ones, paving the way for the math topic of place value.
Chapter 3 – Comparing Numbers
Next comes lots of practice at comparing numbers. Puzzles involve comparing the numbers 0 to 10, both as numerals and as groups of objects, and determining which are smaller, bigger or equal.
Chapter 4 – Counting to 100
Chapter 5 – Adding
This chapter begins with puzzles that involve adding within 5, before progressing to addition within 10. Puzzles also help children learn their number bonds to 10.
Chapter 6 – Subtracting
Subtraction puzzles in this section begin with subtraction within 5, before progressing to subtraction within 10. There are also simple word problems with fun themes such as bees and a visit to the bakery.
Chapter 7- Measurement and Data
The puzzles in this chapter help children compare and sort objects according to measurable attributes such as length, width and capacity. Fun themes in this chapter include an enchanted forest and snowmen.
Chapter 8 – Shapes and Patterns
This content-packed chapter covers 2D and 3D shapes as well as simple repeating patterns made from colours and shapes. Some puzzles practise position words such as next to, behind and between.
