We all know that building a solid foundation in math is fundamental, what we might not know is that it requires a systematic approach. Too often, children don’t get a broad introduction and enough ongoing practice to build confidence and develop a deep understanding of math. Happy Numbers can help. All the bases covered, from initial one-one correspondences for preschoolers, through patterning, numeration, before and after, and place value, for the primary grades. They have 175 different lessons with more in development. Rather than just rote memorization, children manipulate beads, cubes, fruit, and jumping grasshoppers to explore and solve each problem. The students we worked with enjoyed the diversity of the lessons and looked forward to the occasional “mini-bomb” of drills that can be chosen toward the end of the program. The whole concept that “less is more” is executed flawlessly in Happy Numbers Math. They have provided teachers with the option to add students and select which exercises will be visible in their own individual accounts. Try it, today! happynumbers.com
