123 Number Fun

 

123 Number Fun is the brain child of Popular Children's Author Jane Hague. Jane first developed Tilly's Tables flash cards to help middle and senior primary students learn the multiplication tables. ( 123multiplication.com ) However, Jane soon realised through conversations with parents and teachers that there were very few multi sensory resources for helping younger learners with basic counting skills.

 

Initially Jane created Number Fun Flash cards to help pre school children master counting from 1 to 20, the flash cards are based on ten number characters starting with Robot Zero and finishing with Nun Nine. The characters provide a effective means for linking a number to a tangible image and formed a pre-curser to a range of short stories for kids that explore how numbers are used in everyday activities.

Stories From Number Town is a series of ten children's books specifically aimed at combining children's literature with basic maths skills. Starting with basic number recognition, counting, sequences, shape and solving simple problems.
