Child's Play Maths 1&2


Math is probably the one subject that causes the most concern for parents and the most distress for children.
Our main focus is making learning fun by offering resources that inspire and motivate children to learn.

Childs Play Math 1&2 is the comprehensive instruction manual for the complete Child's Play Math program comprising 63 units.


We believe children learn best when they are engaged in activities that provide for their favored learning style adopting methods and strategies that reflect the way the brain processes information.

Above all we believe learning should make children feel good about themselves. 

Child's Play Math 1&2 will enable your child to master basic math concepts, and more, with ease.

Child's Play Math 1&2 combines the four learning styles, visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile perfectly. Young children are strongly kinesthetic learners as are many boys and will benefit from a 'hands on' learning program. Visual learners will respond to the color of pattern and relationships revealed by Cuisenaire rods. The program is play, games and task-driven with the emphasis upon questions to instigate open-ended tasks that will appeal to auditory learners

You will be amazed at what your child can achieve with this program.

The program will be available to download immediately after purchase as a PDF file.

The program is suitable for Kindergarten and preschool children through Grades 1 through 5. Young children will master concepts normally considered too difficult for their age group. The visual nature of the program enables children to 'see' the patterns and relationships that underpin the concepts. Child's Play Math 1&2 is also an effective 'catch-up' program for children who failed to grasp math the first time round.

This is what Christine Hindle had to say about our program when she reviewed it for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine:

"This product is a math program from England (Wales actually) that uses Cuisenaire Rods to teach math at all levels starting with preschool. It consists of a computer program for "playing" with the colored rods on a grid. an e-book with extensive instructions, and a User's Manual (all downloadable - no shipping involved). This is a wonderful program for a visual learner. On the preschool level, it gets the child ready for math by just providing play time with the rods, enabling the child to visualize sizes and comparable amounts - leading to addition. The curriculum teaches vocabulary (letter names and color names for the rods) and refers to this as "algebra before arithmetic." If the child uses the rods and learns the concepts from the beginning, the program builds into addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, algebra etc.

 I own a set of Cuisenaire rods and have used them in the past with math, but I never really had the knowledge of how best to incorporate them into the program. With this very detailed e-book and the accompanying software and manual, I now have the tools available to me. I intend to start my kindergartener with this program so that she can have the opportunity from the start. She already is familiar with the rods and plays with them: now I can start her on her math journey. Just introducing the preliminary concepts has already proven successful with her, and she is excited about using the manipulatives and using the computer program provided.

 I highly recommend this product and the ingenious approach to math, especially for all the visual learners in our homeschools."

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
