This product was designed to help students develop number sense and learn addition facts for numbers 3-10. Students should start at 3 and stay there until they truly master how to make 3 (3 & 0, 2 & 1, 1 & 2, 0 & 3), then they can move to 4, once again, mastering before moving on. This allows for differentiation, as students can work on the number they are mastering, rather than moving the whole class together.
