Carlito the Catepillar's Math House Games =)

I am excited to share a great review opportunity with you. Carlito the Catepillar's Math House Games is based on a 20 step sensory math teaching system, which teaches kids math in a fun way!

Early childhood development professionals note that young children are most open to learning when they play.  Most parents know the importance of math but many are unsure of how they can help their young children learn the fundamentals of math. There are so many questions. "How early should I start? What does my child need to learn? What concepts are most important? What do I do if my child has more trouble than other kids their age?" Often times the answers to these questions are not clear or consistent.

The c3pla Sensory Math Teaching System was created by Domenico Marcario, M.S., a retired math teacher and loving grandfather, to answer those questions.
They have created activities and games for parents to play with their children. The material is presented in 3 stages, with a total of 20 steps and 2 games in each step  covering quantity, numeration, and operations.
   The sturdy deck is on attached on a ring that allows you to choose which game to play and not worry about losing the other cards while you get absorbed in the game. Very handy tool.
The set contains
  • 30 double-sided, full color, illustrated Game Cards
  • Related editorial information explaining to parents The What, Why and How of Each Step
  • Each 8" x 4" loose leaf card is printed on heavy card stock, lacquered to help protect from spills and ring bound to keep together and facilitate play

In addition to the games, Carlito C. Caterpillar’s MathHouse Games sells colorful, detailed math activities for toddlers and young children. Their materials are based on Domenico’s proprietary 20 Step Sensory Math Teaching System. This system, which utilizes objects and fun games to help children learn math, busts several myths about math such as the assumption that mathematics is highly abstract in nature.

  I hope this helps you and your child have fun while learning :)
Thank you!
