Product Description


Plastic pieces separate to help children learn number recognition and counting 1-5. Great for encouraging fine motor skills, healthy snacking and imaginative play. Embedded magnets (orange, apple, plum) and friction fitting (banana) make numbered pieces easy to assemble.

Includes

     • 5 fruits (apple, strawberry, orange, plum, banana)
     • Storage bowl

Bowl measures 7.75”D

Grades: PreK+

Common Core State Standards Alignment: Counting & Cardinality

Learning Styles: Visual, Tactile

Skill Development:

Math- Teaches parts of a whole by slicing the fruit in segments. Each segment has the number symbol and a seed representation.

Math- Reinforce counting skills by asking students to put 3 fruits in the bowl or take 4 pieces out of the bowl; add two pieces to the bowl or take away 1 piece. Students gain practice in counting, addition, and subtraction.

Fine Motor- Students use bilateral coordination to hold and connect or peel apart the segments of fruit.

The fruit was versatile ...

Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks® Counting Fun Fruit Bowl™:

The fruit was versatile and could be used in many different activities, such as role play, counting, sticking together and many more! They really helped early work in maths, such as the fruit fitting together to teach fractions. A very nice resource.

Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks® Counting Fun Fruit Bowl™:

Saw this set at a parent/teacher supply store and my 3 year old and husband were engaged with the apple, plum, and orange. The banana was not on display. I like the magnetic feature as the pieces of fruit easily stay together during assembly. The banana is in three pieces and is not magnetized. The banana pieces do not easily fit together (Mom and Dad had trouble putting together and taking apart). The banana needs redesigned but we do not regret the purchase...one bad banana did not spoil the whole bowl in this case. Four good fruits.

Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks® Counting Fun Fruit Bowl™:

It is entertaining, and the three grandchildren share in the play. I specifically like the healthy nutrition aspect of this product. The banana is hard too put together. They received this December 25, and from the outset the banana was defective. The banana is not usuable.
