Contents: 3 various double-sided game boards (21 x 30 cm), 42 double-sided cards (8,5 x 8,5 cm) with colourful images on their one side, and numerals, arithmetic signs and operations on their other side. The game boards and flashcards are made of thick cardboard.
Age: 4 – 7 years old children; children with special needs.
Number of players: 1 – 3 children.
Objectives: to learn numbers and understand the relation between numerals and quantity; To learn perform operations of addition and subtraction in range from 1 to 12; To relate calculation and narrative skills: To create coherent story while performing math operations; To connect two actions that had happened before and afterwards; To make the learning process and counting tasks more playful; To develop speaking and observation skills as well as logical thinking. The game can be played with children in different age groups and of different abilities: a child who is beginner in learning numbers may lay out the flashcards according to visual correspondence, and children who have already acquired the counting skills can perform arithmetical operations.
Activities:
1st math story
You will need a game board with arithmetical signs and operations of addition on its one side, and with numbers (answers) on its other side; as well as 12 flashcards with images on their one side, and with addition tasks on their other side. Take the flashcards with their pictures upside and lay them out onto the lotto game board according to the indicated direction. Properly arranged flashcards will create a sequential story:  
 5 bigger and 4 smaller flower sprouts are sprouting (5+4);
 9 different flowers are already blooming, and 1 daisy is going to bloom (9 + 1);
 2 bees are sitting on a daisy blossom, more 3 bees are flying towards it (2 + 3);
 there are 6 honey buckets, a bee is bringing more 2 buckets (6+2);
 1 bear is tasting honey and 2 bears are coming nearer to him (1 + 2);
 2 bees are chasing a bear, 10 more are flying after (2+10).
2nd math story
You will need a game board with arithmetical signs and operations of subtraction on its one side, and with numbers (answers) on its other side; as well as 12 flashcards with images on their one side, and with addition tasks on their other side. Take the flashcards with their pictures upside and lay them out onto the lotto game board according to the indicated direction. Properly arranged flashcards will create a sequential story:  
 9 pea sprouts sprouted, but two of them were nibbled by snails (9-2);
 A pea plant ripened 7 pea pods, 1 of them has been picked off by a passer-by (7-1);
 8 peas were in a pea pod, 4 of them fell on the road (8-4);
 There were 4 peas on the road, two of them were eaten up by hens (4 – 2);
 3 hens were walking on the road, but 2 of them were stolen by a fox (3-2);
 12 fir-cones were on a branch, one of them fell down on the head of the fox (12-1).
Those children, who are beginners in learning numbers, can create the stories not emphasizing the numerals and operations. They can only find cards with such number combinations that are analogical to the combinations on the lotto game board, and lay them out onto the board. In this way child’s observation skills will be developed.
Games for acquiring numbers and amounts
1. You will need one lotto game board with 6 images of different amount of peas on its one side, and with pea pods with different amount of peas on its other side; as well as flashcards where a proper number or the same amount of peas/bees/pods are depicted.  The flashcards should be laid down onto the correspondent images of the game board. In this way children learn to count and tell what and how many ‘items’ are depicted on the images.
2. As arithmetical signs (+,  -, =) are depicted on 6 of the flashcards, all 42 double-sided flashcards can be used separately in order to perform various arithmetical operations and see their results. The flashcards with numbers and proper images may be laid out in pairs: in this way child will develop his skills to see the relation between numbers and amount.
