I create unique dot to dot puzzles that hide a picture among extra dots. Follow the pattern or you won't find the picture.

As an educator, I spend a lot of time researching how children learn. One focus I had was patterning and how it could be used to teach other math concepts, such as counting and addition. These number puzzles were developed out of this research. By solving these puzzles, figuring out the pattern and accurately following that pattern, children practice counting skills and mental addition. This leads to number fluency and a strong base for learning multiplication. The pictures quickly reveal if the pattern isn't being followed (because the picture won't make sense if the pattern is wrong), which means the child and/or teacher can figure out what went wrong and fix the problem, learning from mistakes and becoming stronger at math.
