    Here's a set of Cuisenaire rods for the younger set. These are pretty cute, too! Bigger than regular rods (each ant has a 1" space, so 10 logs are 10" long) – and made of a soft, pliable (and quiet) vinyl material, there are 20 double-sided logs (2 sets of 1-10). Each log has ants on one side and numbers on the other side. Preschool math possibilities abound – matching, sorting, sequencing, counting, "10" number bonds (number family), addition, and subtraction. The logs are 7/8" wide (tall) and about ½" thick. A molded plastic storage tray fits inside the box; a small eight-page activity booklet is included. ~ Janice

    Love electronic games? Need to practice your times tables? This hand-held electronic flash card game helps you learn your 0-12 times tables while encouraging speedy fact recall.

    What a great way to learn how to tell both digital and analog time! At first glance, this product looks like a ping-pong paddle – it has a sturdy handle and a round, double-sided face that measures 6.5" in diameter. One side of the paddle shows a blank rectangle with space to write in the digital time. The other side shows an analog clock face without hands (with hours and minutes shown). The faces of both sides are made from dry-erase material so students or instructors can write in the times on both sides again and again. Please note that no dry-erase marker is included. ~ Rachel

    This three-function clock timer allows you to count up time, count down time, or just tell the time. At our house it has proved invaluable, reminding us to stir science experiments at timed intervals, or sounding the alarm when drill time is up. Mom keeps one on her desk to keep us on schedule. Now the kids want one of their own to aid in self-scheduling. Its angled face makes it easy to read, and its non-skid base keeps it where its put (until somebody carries it off to use it). Alarm gently beeps when time is up. Runs on an AA battery. Beats our old stopwatch hands-down.
