Step by step description, including actions to be developed for preparation and implementation:
10 partitioned (bottomed 5'er) material is prepared from wood or durable card with the numbers written on each partition in order (from 0 to 9). Wood beads (preferably all one color) are provided in sufficient quantities to match each figure. The teacher shows the place of each figure in the wooden partition and puts the wooden bonnet in the partition. The pupil tells you to do the same thing. This is done for each figure. Thus, the teaching of numbers is reinforced. 0 is left blank for the number and is recognized as 'no, empty'. Teaching is repeated until full learning is achieved.
Resources to be used, including human resources, materials and spaces:
One teacher is sufficient in teaching. The training is carried out individually and in the classroom. Box with wooden numerals and compartments, at least 45 beads of solid wood color.
Difficulties found while implementing it:
Attention should be paid to the level of readiness of the student, and each figure must be understood beforehand. This application is for reinforcement purposes.
