This set of round Coconut counters 30mm consists of 100 pieces. The Coconut counters come in a Coconut jar for easy storage and transport. Each counter measures 30mm in diameter.
Ultimately, counting is an important part of the Mathematics Curriculum, especially in the first two years of primary school. Furthermore, theprocess of counting, sorting, adding and subtracting is a complex one. However, byusing materials like counters, children will get a visual understanding of the concept. This will help them improve their skills in conservation, classifying, comparing, ordering and patterning.
These Coconut counters are a must have for every mathematics classroom.

Links to Theorists:
- This learning experience can be linked to Vygotsky’s theories. He believes that language, literacy and numeracy skills should be ‘scaffolded’ by adults or more skilled peers. Their understandings in these areas were deepened and enriched.
