From the Usborne Foundation and the team behind the award-winning Teach Your Monster to Read comes Teach Your Monster Number Skills, a new maths learning game all about boosting kids' confidence with numbers and making maths fun.
Teach Your Monster Number Skills is a kids learning game developed with renowned early years mathematics expert Bernie Westacott in consultation with Dr Helen J. Williams, and Dr Sue Gifford - to help children practise the skills needed to develop their number sense.
Aligned with the early years national curriculum in the UK, Teach Your Monster Number Skills reinforces critical number skills, from splitting numbers in useful ways using number bonds to 10, to the fundamentals of recognising adding, subtracting and counting and recognising number quantities. The more kids play with these core concepts, the better their number sense becomes - giving them a solid foundation for maths success in school and later life.
The game covers early year requirements for mathematics across the world. Focusing on numbers up to 10, the game consists of 8 mini maths games which children can play as they explore. Each game currently has 5 levels, making a total of 40 levels of fun.
Meet Queenie Bee and her friends as you explore the park, customise your monster and collect prizes for your Prize Palace. From dodgems to bouncy castles, fun-filled games offer exciting, new ways to practise number skills again and again. Hang on tight, the learning fun through play never stops in the Number Park!

What does Teach Your Monster Number Skills cover?
Counting — including a complex array of concepts such as stable order, 1-2-1 correspondence and cardinality
Subitising — the ability to recognise quantities without counting
Number bonds — including the composition of each number up to 10 and how to use them to split up and recombine numbers in useful ways
Addition and subtraction — building on their work with number bonds allows children to develop fluency with the fundamentals of addition and subtraction
Ordinality and magnitude — including knowing numbers in the right order; knowing where they are in relation to key points such as 0, 5, and 10; and knowing that numbers increase or decrease as they move up and down
Manipulatives — the game uses teaching objects known as manipulatives to represent number problems in lots of different ways including fingers, five frames, ten frames and dice patterns
