Uncle Goose Groovie Math and Patterning Blocks
This is a wonderful set of wooden blocks, and their nontoxic, colored
embossing (on four sides!) is not merely decorative. Grooves on two
sides make it easy to interlock the blocks (1.5 inches each). Eighteen
of the blocks are numbered (two sets of 0 to 9). On the reverse side of
each numbered block is an embossed group of the same number of shapes.
But each set is different. For example, a 3-by-3-inch grid of nine green
squares--all the same size--are on the back of one of the "9" blocks.
On the other "9" block is solar-system-like arrangement of nine
different-size circles. So the concept of number can be
appreciated--visually and by feel--independent of size. The nonembossed
sides are vividly painted patterns that can be used for matching shapes
and, in combination, for creating larger shapes. A useful sheet of
suggested play activities is included.
