Using duplo to support maths

As part of our growing maths area we generally add natural objects to it on a regular basis.  I saw duplo being used this way on the internet a few weeks ago and initially dismissed it.  I thought our children would not respond to it in Nursery as they might in reception. I was wrong.

The children are putting the numbers in the correct order (Using numerals) but also by counting the dots.  The dots were laid out in a way that matches dominoes and dice so some children did not need to count 1-6.

Some children were even taking a shot at reading the number names.
Quite a nifty little resource.
