This involved assessment on the early Mathematics abilities (Ginsburg &amp; Baroody, 2003). This program was conducted among preschoolers (aged 5-6 years old) in one selected rural preschool in Menggatal district, Sabah. The school has 4 classes of 25 students each, with a total of 100 preschoolers. One sample t-test was conducted to compare mathematics ability of children before and after intervention. Mean score for pre-test is 15, while mean score for post-test is 22.32. There was a significant difference in the scores for mathematic ability in pre-test (M=15.78, SD=.99) and post-test (M=22.32, SD=.78), t (86) (=-28.52, p = 0.000). The results show, that the use of games developed by authors are effective in improving preschoolers early Mathematics performance.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Southeast Asia Early Childhood Journal}, author={Ompok, Connie Shin @ Connie Cassy and Mei Teng, Ling and Sapirai, Jaini}, year={2021}, month={Jan.}, pages={1–17} }
