In Teaching Counting and Cardinality Using LEGO® Bricks, Dr. Shirley Disseler has developed activities that work to help students learn how to count and understand cardinality, using a common toy available in most classrooms and homes— LEGO® bricks!

Number recitation is only the start of a child’s true understanding of counting and cardinality. When students learn to count on, count back, skip-count, and use one-to-one correspondence, they develop a solid base of fluency with numbers. Even before they understand any other mathematical concepts, students can model the process of counting with LEGO® bricks to help visualize the math.

In this book, the hands-on activities using LEGO® bricks help

students learn:

• pattern recognition

• skip-counting

• jump numbers

• concepts of more than and less than

• one-to-one correspondence

The book starts at the most basic concepts and focuses on a specific topic in each chapter. Most students learn these concepts between grades K – 2.

Using LEGO® bricks to model math provides a universal language. Children everywhere recognize this manipulative.

It’s fun to learn when you’re using LEGO® bricks!
