We’re excited to announce that a new-and-improved version of our Decinny Game is now available! This large, wooden board splits into three pieces for easy storage and includes beautiful, detailed pictures. New, larger cards are made from heavy cardstock in bright green and blue. As always, instructions for playing several games are also included.
Decinny games are designed to help students understand the concepts and relationships of common fractions, fractions in hundredths, decimals, and percentages as they relate to one another and to the common parts of a dollar. Learn more about the Decinny Game here.
After mastering combinations of numbers up to ten, have children move on to learning “teen” numbers with the Doubles and Neighbors Board! Children have an easier time learning the double facts (6+6=12, etc.) than the odd number facts. The doubles serve to anchor the children. The neighbor combinations are one more than the double facts. 6+7 is one more than 6+6. Learn more about the Doubles and Neighbors Board here.
