How to help your child with the game:
The game consists of 8 pages and is based on the circus theme. On each page, talk about the activities and make sure that your child understands what they are to do. Name and count the characters and the objects you can see in the pictures. Talk about the shape and significance of the number. This will give your child a context for the activities. Stop before your child gets too tired and loses concentration or become restless, remember this is not just educational, it should be fun. This will guarantee that they want to come back for more!
Encourage your child to color in the illustrations. This builds up concentration, improves eye and hand coordination, and develops pencil control. Make sure there is a range of colored pencils or felt-tip pens available. Crayons are usually too thick for such activities. For drawing and writing, your child needs a sharp and soft pencil. If it is too hard, they will have difficulty seeing their work, which will lead to frustration.
When children are
writing numbers and letters, they should always start from
the top. When the child is writing the number 7, talk about the
movements of the pencil - from left to the right and down across. Encourage
your child to write in a continuous movement. Repeat these when the
child is writing on their own with dots or without dots.
When counting, encourage your child to put their finger on each object as they count, the last number counted names the set, additionally you can ask your child to draw a ring round the set of seven.
