“Number order is the first concept taught to children when they start going to school. Children repeat the numbers one after other and they are expected to learn progression of numbers. This makes the learning difficult and leads to rote learning. Children need something concrete with which they can relate and retain the numbers.
Floor discs does exactly this. Discs are laid on the ground and children walk besides it and discover progression of numbers while walking step by step. Walking besides disc provides context enabling children to understand and relate sequence of numbers with everyday life. Learning Outcome: Concept of order, forward and backward counting, after/before/in between. “
