Carlito C. Caterpiller's MathHouse Games

We are always looking for math games around here. I have two very oral kinetic learners who love, love, love to play! So of course I said "yes!" to reviewing a product for math games. And my goodness, isn't he just so cute??

Carlito C. Caterpiller's MathHouse Games is a set of full-color cards of 40 math games. The games introduce math abstractly through fun hands-on activities. In Carlito C. Caterpiller's MathHouse Games, there are three stages to understanding math:
  • Stage 1: Quantity
  • Stage 2: Numeration
  • Stage 3: Operations

Description from their website:
Carlito C. Caterpillar's MathHouse™ Game Cards
Based on Domenico’s proprietary 20 Step Sensory Math Teaching System
Featuring two uniquely designed games to demonstrate each step (40 games in all)
The set contains
  • 30 double-sided, full color, illustrated Game Cards
  • Related editorial information explaining to parents The What, Why and How of Each Step
  • Each 8" x 4" loose leaf card is printed on heavy card stock, lacquered to help protect from spills and ring bound to keep together and facilitate play
What to Teach When
Carlito C. Caterpiller's MathHouse Games is appropriate for preschool through elementary school. My very academically inclined second grader was beyond many of the games, but I expected that. He still had fun! My struggling learner will be using these games for a while though.

Something to Note

When you order Carlito C. Caterpiller's Math House Games, you are getting the game instructions. You have to go to the website and download some files for the manipulatives that are required for the games. Many games require at least some prep before hand so be aware that you can't purchase it and begin as soon as it arrives. Prep work is listed under "Get Ready" in the instructions for each game. Very simple, but it does take a little planning. :)

Other Products 
Carlito C. Caterpillar’s MathHouse™ Illustrated Books are based on the MathHouse system. Each of the 20 books goes along with a lesson in the MathHouse games.

An iPad app is coming soon!
