    Young children will appreciate this hands-on approach to developing analytic thinking skills via an exploration of shapes, colors, and patterns. The activities require three types of manipulatives: attribute blocks, pattern blocks, and interlocking (or multilink) cubes. Like the Building Thinking Skills program, activities cover four key areas: Similarities and Differences, Sequences, Classifications, and Analogies. Simple activity instructions appear at the top of each page as a basic guideline for the teacher. The activity book itself is approximately 250 pages. Manipulatives are not included. Required manipulatives for this program are as follows: A) Pattern Blocks – set of 100 in six colors and shapes (triangle, trapezoid, rhombus (2 types), hexagon, square); B) Interlocking Cubes – set of 100 (plastic cubes that link on all sides, 10 cubes of 10 different colors); C) Attribute Blocks – set of 60 (pieces come in 5 shapes (triangle, square, rectangle, circle, hexagon), 3 colors (red, blue, yellow), 2 sizes (large, small), 2 thicknesses). ~ Anh

    This simple tool is a great asset when teaching beginning math facts. It's a triangular white board with three 10" sides. It's double sided and has a write-and-wipe surface that works with any dry-erase marker (not included). Displayed on one side are four simple equations with the numbers left blank (two of __+__=__ and two of __-__ =__ ). The corners of the triangle are shaded different colors and teachers can write variables in the three corners and have students plug them in appropriately. For example, if 10, 7, and 3 were written in the corners, students could write 7+3=10, 3+7=10, 10-7=3, and 10-3=7. The opposite side of the board is identical but displays multiplication and division signs instead of addition and subtraction. With such an open-ended format and a reusable surface, this board is sure to get plenty of use. ~Rachel

    Create your own sentence "recipe" while learning parts of speech with this fun game. The center of the game board features a whimsical illustration of chefs cooking, while the perimeter contains colored squares labeled with parts of speech (noun, pronoun, adjective, conjunction, etc.). To play, each player picks a recipe card. Each recipe card contains a list of "ingredients" needed to build a sentence. For example, the cheesecake recipe card lists the following ingredients: 1 pronoun, 2 nouns, 2 verbs, 1 adverb, and 1 adjective. Players then spin and move around the board, drawing a Parts of Speech Ingredient Card that corresponds with the space they landed on. The first person to complete their sentence recipe – and read it aloud – wins! Includes 150 ingredient cards (listing individual words that correspond to the parts of speech), 4 recipe cards, a spinner, 4 chef pawns, and an instruction guide. ~ Lisa

    Both sides of this 11" x 17" graph mat have 1 cm. square graph design. One side has labeling lines across the bottom and left side of the mat.

Although you can use either a dry-erase or wet-erase marker, if using with wet-erase, use only a damp (not wet) cloth to wipe as too much water will ruin the mat.
