I couldn't find any cute plastic penguins to use as game pieces, so we just used counters. (Why is it you can never find the toys you want when you want to use them for school?) He really enjoyed playing and we played four games in a row the first time we sat down to play. When we landed on a square, you had to say the name of the number and what the number represents. For example, for the numeral 14, he had to say "fourteen," and "one ten and four." He had some trouble at first in saying both of those elements but after hearing me say a few of them on my turns, he was able to do them all. A few more times and he will have them down and it was all done in a very fun way -with a little game instead of a number of workbook pages.
