Create a sequence of Resources® in a row. Guide students to guess which piece is missing, or comes next, based on the sequence pattern.
Take a few pieces of Resources® and place them in front of the class. Once everybody has had the chance to see and remember the details, cover the Resources® so they can no longer be seen. Guide students to pick up pieces from a mixed pile corresponding to what they remember and line up the compositions according to their visual memory (color, sequence & orientation). The most alike placement gets the highest score. Guide the class to see their mistakes and how to improve.
Show one Resources® piece to class and let the students observe it. Guide them to study the uniqueness of the shown piece, such as the form, size, and color. Assign students to find the identical piece in the opaque bag using only their hands. Once they find the correct one, take some time to discuss each piece’s unique form and characteristics.
Direct students to each choose one Resources® piece. Guide students to study forms and draw them with crayons.
Take turns to choose pieces from the mixed pile of Resources®. Group the components by form and color.
Group matching pieces of Resources® in easy counting numbers. Guide the students to count and learn numbers through tangible objects. (Use mixed pieces of Resources® for more advanced steps)
