The All About Me Family Counters by Learning Resources are an excellent manipulative set to own! My daughter and son ages four and half and two years old have been enjoying using these counters during school and play time quite a bit. I for one think that these counters are great to use for teaching about colors, sequencing patterns, counting, and much more!
This set of manipulative’s is 72 pieces and comes in 6 different shapes and colors. The colors are orange, blue, green, purple, yellow, and red. The shapes include a cat, infant, girl child, boy child, a man, and a woman. I like that with the shapes, children can put together a set of their very own family! I found these counters very durable and if needed easy to wash after use.
One way I’ve used The All About Me Counters with my children is practicing pattern sequencing. I downloaded the additional exclusive content to use with the counters on the Learning Resource Website, laminated those pages for use after use! Teaching children recognize patterns and sequences is key for future understanding of math concepts and functions. I think starting children out with a set like this one is a must. And it totally helps that these counters are so cute, colorful, and eye catching too!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The All About Me Counters to anyone. There’s not one thing I dislike. The kids love them, there’s additional online content to use with the counters, they are stored in their own bucket, easy to clean, and can be used in so many different ways whether to educate, to have fun, or both!
