Sand Paper Numbers Set

This giveaway is now closed.

Polliwog Learning Products sent us this set of sandpaper numbers for our Celebration. I couldn't believe the quality of the product when I pulled it out of the box! Awesome! These 3"x5" cards are made from 1/8" thick birch and are very smooth. The sandpaper numbers are the perfect size and font for little fingers.
Sandpaper numbers are a great way to introduce numbers to your child! Feeling the number as they trace it with their finger helps build a tactile memory of the number which can be referred to and built upon later. I love how the numbers have a starting point so B knew where to put his finger to begin! We also had a great time making different numbers (shown below) and putting them in order. B asked me where the letters are, so we will be getting those next! =)

  4. She is a pre-school teacher that believes materials are too expensive. If I got these, I'd give them to my God-daughter who was born with Down Syndrome. This would be an excellent introduction into her therapy, she is 14 months old! Thank you for sharing!!

  5. If I won these, I would use them with my 12 month son. He is really into feeling different textures right now, so this would be perfect for him! I will definitely visit the shop in July. As a former teacher, I always love finding new learning materials!

  6. I think my four year old would LOVE these! It would be a great way to teach her, since she is definitely a tactile learner! I have added her as a favorite seller, and signed up to be notified when she returns! I can't wait!! Oh, and I love that as a preschool teacher, she KNOWS how expensive teaching materials can be!

  17. I'd use them in our homeschooling for my two youngest (one of which is much too young for them right now). I suspect that my oldest would find some manner of game to play with them as well.

  26. I would use them to help my 3 year old. She's been working on numbers, but gets them backwards a lot! I'm excited to learn about Pollywog Learning and am excited to check out her shop in July!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I learned, even though her shop is closed, taht she exists - I hadn't found her site on there before and am excited to see it when she does reopen! I told it to send me an email when she reopens so I won't forget to go check it out! I would LOVE these for my 3 year old and 1 year old boys. Even my 6 year old could probably learn from them as he tends to make the right shape but in the "wrong" directions which will make cursive much harder. These are neat!

  34. I'd love to have these to use with my 3 and a half year old. We currently use the sandpaper letters and numbers at the library once a week. Having them here to use daily or at least more regularly would be a blessing.

  38. YUM! (that is the first word that came to mind!) i LOVE montessori stuff! my daughter is just at the age where we are teaching her the numerals- so these could be used in a bazillion ways- from putting them in order, to placing the sand paper number next to group of numbered objects, to finger tracing, LOVE THEM!

  45. I would love to use these to keep my 2 1/2 year old busy while homeschooling everyone else. And it would also help my soon-to-be kinder with handwriting. Thanks for hosting all these great giveaways. And congrats on 1000!

  47. My son is so into writing letters and numbers right now but he's too young for me to feel like I ought to be showing him the 'right' way to do it. I like that these show you the starting point for the tracing. In fact I may have to try to make some myself if I don't win. ;)

  51. I learned that the letters/numbers are made of sandpaper and are cut with a laser engraver. My son is trying to learn his numbers and I think one of these sets would be very helpful.
