While this product was not age appropriate for my 4 year old class -- I did purchase it for my daughter who is in the first grade. She has been struggling with math addition/subtraction and I felt it originated with not having the double facts memorized. Flash cards, drills, worksheets, oral grames, ect only raised her frustration level. This game though, worked like a miracle! It caught her attention and made it fun. After only playing a few rounds every night for two weeks, she is a double facts wizard and no longer struggling with math homework. THANK YOU!
Sorry but the numbers do not go past 100. I know the CCSS says kids need to write and recognize numbers to 120 but our district does not say that they have to show numbers past 99 with place value. But now you have me thinking that I should make one with higher numbers! Thanks for your interest and your question!
