•  It is a very good didactic aid with successful polygraphic solution – the material, colours, and rounded corners.
 Advantage: different difficulty levels that widen opportunities of application for children at different ages.
  • The set develops * straight thinking (telling the similarities and differences etc.); * creative thinking (various combining opportunities); * grouping skills; * counting skills; * promotes learning colours; * promotes learning shapes; * develops skills of creating coherent sentences (a child can tell what colours, how many and which shapes he has to use to make the biggest shape; he can tell which colours are his favourite ones; he can hold discussions about the colours that suits together; tell how many corners has got rhombus etc.).
  • The recommendable range of age is quite large. You can give the easiest tasks with the biggest shapes (squares, rhombuses – it is very individual) for 3 years old children. But the basic age could be from 4 to 7 years (early school age) – it depends on child’s development. In schools for children with special needs: grades 2 and 3, as well as older children.
