The Primary Path to Algebra

Understanding how and why our number system works is the underpinning of all future mathematical growth and the focus of the Common Core Standards.  At Counting Spots, we find, design and create the best materials to support teachers in developing numeracy comprehension for their students.

Strong groundwork in number sense, critical thinking, problem solving and computational fluency helps math “Make Sense!” We have a variety of items, including professional books, supplemental materials and kits for small group instruction and independent work stations. Looking for something specific?? Let us know! We’ll either track it down, or make it for you!


Numeracy Kits

Every Parent and Teacher needs a toolkit.  Our kits help you develop a strong cognitive  foundation for future algebraic thinking.

Help your child build a strong cognitive foundation through play.
Materials designed to develop the building blocks for our base-ten number system.
These materials will help solidify understanding of our base-ten number system.
Developing flexible mental strategies for basic computation.
Students learn how to apply base-ten strategies to bigger numbers.
Number identification, recitation, verbal and visual sequencing is critical for fluency.
