    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

    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

    Make learning geography fun with this large inflatable globe that is great to use in a variety of activities. The globe is made from vinyl plastic so after it's inflated, it becomes a durable ball that's great to throw around. The globe is 27" in diameter and the oceans are clear so the globe is basically see-through. The different continents are shown in different bold colors, but the individual borders of countries/states are not shown. There are latitude and longitude lines on the globe, but absolutely nothing in labeled. Luckily, you can use standard wet-erase markers (not included) to label the globe as you see fit and then clean it off with a damp cloth and start over again! A hook and string are included so it's possible to hang the globe from the ceiling and a repair kit makes it easy to fix leaks in the globe (which are hard to come by). A small sheet of activity ideas is included. ~ Rachel

    Check sums and differences from 0 to 20 without a calculator. This handy gadget is made of two numbered rules, joined so that the bottom rule slides back and forth across the top rule. The top rule, approx. 8 ½" long, is numbered from 0 to 20 on both front and back. The bottom rule, approx. 4" long, is numbered from +1 to +9 on one side and from -1 to -9 on the other. To use the self-checker, simply line up the arrow on the bottom rule with a number on the top rule, say 7. Then, to determine the value of 7 + 5, find the number on the top rule that corresponds to +5 on the bottom rule. Made of sturdy blue and yellow plastic. Please note that the self-checker does not handle negative numbers or sums greater than 20. ~ Anh

    This huge calendar is intended to be used in a classroom setting, but could be fun in a home as well. The chart measures 30.75"W x 44.25"H and is made out of durable nylon. The calendar and chart is great for exploring days of the week, months, years, weather, seasons, holidays, and special events. The blue nylon background has clear plastic pockets. Colorful word, number, and picture cards made out of laminated cardboard are included to put in the pockets. On the top of the chart there are pockets for month and year cards (up through 2026). Then the days of the week are listed, and there are plenty of square pockets to insert numbers to form that month's calendar. The next section of the chart has a pocket for the current day of the week, the day it was yesterday, and the day it will be tomorrow. A pocket to display a season card is also included. A section for "Today's Weather" is then located on the bottom of the chart with pockets to insert cards that display things like rain, a cloud over the sun, snowflakes, wind, etc. There are 76 picture cards (including 12 blank cards you can decorate yourself), that can be placed on the calendar showing holidays, seasons, and special classroom events like field trips and the last day of school. There are 19 word cards displaying the months and days of the week and 41 number cards that show the years and dates. Three yellow storage pockets are sewn into the bottom of the chart to hold all the cards not in use. Six holes are punched in the top of the chart and reinforced with metal for easy hanging. This chart provides a fun way to start off your school day and is a great visual aid for teaching young kids about calendars. ~ Rachel

    No, this is not a game about finding out each other's deep dark secrets - it's a game all about bones! The game features true/false questions such as "When a person dies, their bones will start to decompose after two years - true or false?" Think you know the answer? If you get it right you get to spin the spinner and collect a piece of your skeleton. The first person to collect the bones and construct their skeleton wins! There are some other elements to contend with as well. If the spinner lands on a bone you already have, you must draw a lab closet card and follow the instructions. You may have to give a bone to another player, take a bone from the lab closet, get a milk card (which prevents players from taking one of your bones or saves you from breaking a bone), or you may break a bone - you'll have to put one back! The game is designed for four players and contains four complete adorable (I think!) plastic skeletons that snap together easily and have working joints! There are also instructions for five other variations of play. No bones about it, this is a fun and educational game! ~ Megan
