 Substraction trainer Benefit of this training tool is that it is possible to use a huge number of objects instead of counters, including the plastic animals from a farm and a toy from a kinder surprise, and as "receiver" of objects it is possible to imagine any improbable adventures. Counters can take away alien plates, run away in the wood, get ready for parties, take exams in singing and other. So, arrange 10 counters-objects on the upper 10 circles. Put an object-receiver on a big round field. Think out fantastic plots and play table theater: "6 princes arrived to a ball (move counters from above in the field of "was totally"). Three of them went to save the princess. How many princes left to dance on the ball?". If you print a field on color paper and laminate it, if you laminate it will be possible to write with a marker on it and remove what you wrote. On the color illustration we signed fields that the scheme of a game was clear, but you shouldn't do it on your game field, in order not to remind the child a purpose of your occupation.

Thus, a game, a game and once again a game will help your kid imperceptibly, fascinatingly and quickly to master arithmetics. Send photos of your occupations!!
