Mummy ~ me had finally take up the decision to get the long wanted Montessori Mathematics Education 2-5 years old classic package. It cost me a bomb...however for any educational related programme to him will definately worth the dollars. In fact, it is a tool that I invest to impart the teaching at home instead of sending him to the enrichment classes which definately cost x5 - x6 then the teaching aids that I bought.
The programme contains of the following :-
Next, i bought him the National Flag World Puzzle... it is a 15 pieces world puzzles with 30 world national flags. By matching world national flag to the correct continent, it then makes a delightful 3 D puzzle that will definately entice the interest of the young child.
