Review & Giveaway~ Carlito C. Caterpillar’s Math House Games


Carlito C. Caterpillar’s Math House Games is a great set of 20 laminated cards with large, toddler proof durable activity cards all stored on a convenient O-ring for easy totting and use.  The card set showcases 20 easy steps to help kids learn math in a fun, hands-on way.  Math can be FUN and Caterpillar Math House helps to make it fun.  Each of the 20 steps includes 2 activities, which are further broken down into 3 different stages that increase in difficulty as your child progresses.  Any materials for the games are available right on the c3pla site, how great is that?!

“Domenico Marcario, M.S. – The creator of Carlito C. Caterpillar’s MathHouseTM Sensory Math Teaching System, is a retired high school mathematics teacher and full-time passionate grandparent!

The Carlito C. Caterpillar’s Sensory Math Teaching System is the outgrowth of years of research and development. It utilizes the natural way children learn.

From birth, children discover facts through sensory experiences. Fueled by curiosity and imagination, children use their eyes, hands, ears, noses, and mouths to learn about their world. They gain understanding by doing rather than by sitting passively and watching someone else do the thinking for them.”

The younger girls really enjoyed playing and learning with these cards.  I especially liked that whenever I needed a specific  worksheet, I could just go to the site and print as many as I needed.  I recommend this set of cards to anyone who wants to supplement their math program and to think out of the box a bit.mathHouseLogo
