Plastic pieces separate to help children learn number recognition and counting 1-5. Great for encouraging fine motor skills, healthy snacking and imaginative play. Embedded magnets (orange, apple, plum) and friction fitting (banana) make numbered pieces easy to assemble.
Common Core State Standards Alignment: Counting & Cardinality
Learning Styles: Visual, Tactile
Math- Teaches parts of a whole by slicing the fruit in segments. Each segment has the number symbol and a seed representation.
Math- Reinforce counting skills by asking students to put 3 fruits in the bowl or take 4 pieces out of the bowl; add two pieces to the bowl or take away 1 piece. Students gain practice in counting, addition, and subtraction.
Fine Motor- Students use bilateral coordination to hold and connect or peel apart the segments of fruit.
