Crissee – “I love this set of counting vehicles. I had thes in my old classroom but unfortunately my new school didn’t have them and weren’t going to purchase them for me. Amazon was the best place to get these and at the most reasonable price. The kids enjoyed using these for a variety of math activities and even a writing lesson. They are also very colorful and durable and can easily be washed.”
Cathy – “My two year old Grandson loves just dumping them out all over the place….but he is learning his colors with them and is learning to make groups by patterning by color or by item. Good math manipulative that will be useful for when he starts school and is learning adding and subtracting. He loves the boats, cars, planes, trains etc. Very durable. If your toddler puts things in their mouths, they could be choking hazards so don’t let them use them by themselves.”
Emily K. – “My 4 year old and 1.5 year old love these counters. They love anything vehicle oriented and are great way to get them into math mode (count, sort, and arrange these into different patterns.) They also help the baby with identification (I ask him to pick out certain pieces or colors) So I’d say this is a educational win all around. Obviously there is a choking hazard here as the pieces are only about an inch long, but it’s great to engage both of my boys at the same time with these.”
Kylee Jo McKnight – “Made from very durable rubber like material. My 3yo loves them for school time!”
Melissa Coyle – “My son loves counting and sorting these over and over.”
Amazon Customer – “My son loved the counters and it’s a great visual to get him doing his math work. Price was good compared to shopping at “The Teacher Store”, where prices are more expensive.”
Becky – “I count on other reviews to make my choices, so I wanted to help you out with mine! =) Good variety of vehicles to use for math manipulatives/activities/counting. My kiddos love using them!! =) Thanks for fast shipping, too!”
Valerie – “I am a childcare Provider and my children use them for counting, colors and pairing.”
The T’s – “Great quality math manipulative for counting and math lessons. Perfect for the visual and tactile learner.”
Miguel – “I like them”
Counters with a sorting focus
Counters are essential learning materials for children. Use different counters to learn basic number concepts like sorting, matching, comparing, sequencing, patterning and basic counting.
Hands-on learning manipulatives
Children learn valuable language and classification skills when using these materials. Children may also design their own games by using these counters.
Stimulate tactile experience
Children will love the small details in these high quality Transport counters and their rubbery feel an interesting way to teach early addition and subtraction skills.
