    Oh, the feel of a nice, thick (1 cm.) wooden pattern block! Don't tell your children that these aren't just toys! The bright, enticing primary colors seem to draw even the smallest of our children into play. Proportioned shapes allow for the construction of infinite designs. Even before they begin to use them for "work" on symmetry, congruence, similarity, measurement, fractional relationships, counting, sorting, and geometry, they are discovering the unique relationships between the blocks and getting plenty of experience in patterning and spatial problem-solving. We've had hours of enjoyment with our set and, with 250 blocks to the bucket, there's enough for several children to construct or work simultaneously.

    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

    Cute plastic bears in three sizes, three weights, and six colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). Baby bear weighs 4 grams, mama weighs 8 grams, and papa weighs 12 grams. Proportional weights allow use on balance for measurement discoveries ("How many babies weigh as much as mama and papa?"). We recommend doing these activities on a pan balance, not a teeter-totter type balance where placement of the bears is crucial (and potentially frustrating for young children). Rainbow set includes 24 papa, 24 mama, and 48 baby bear counters and is packaged in a resealable bag. Note that although the bears are slightly different in appearance (bears are standing and wearing backpacks) to the ones featured on the Three Bear Family Sorting and Pattern cards below, the sizes, colors and weights are identical.

    Laminated chart from 1-100 in 1" squares. Blank grid on reverse.

    A great complement to the hundred number chart, these quality plastic tiles were one of Mark's favorite math manipulatives when he was learning to count to 100. Sorting them into stacks of 10 helped him understand the concept of place value. Turning random tiles upside down helped him learn "What's between ___ and ___?". Tiles are the right size to fit in the squares on the hundred number chart. "Dad, can we use the tiles today?"

      Learning fractions, decimals and percentages and seeing the connections between them can be challenging. They were for me! Manipulatives such as these can be just the aid needed to help students grasp the concepts. This set includes three tile sets: fractions, decimals, and percentages. The tiles correlate in shape and color. So, to build a tile that represents the large “1” blue tile (6” long), your student can use twelve 1/12 pink tiles, six 0.166 orange tiles, or eight 12.5% tiles. You can also show correlation with colors: the yellow tiles are 2.5%, ¼, and 0.25. So helpful to bridge between the three equivalents! I would personally add magnets to the tile backs for further usability. Colors, from largest to smallest, are blue, brown, black, yellow, green, orange, red, purple and pink. Nine different fractions (and their equivalents) included: 1, ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/5, 1/6 1/8, 1/10, and 1/12. Tiles are 1” tall and range from 6” long for the “1” (or whole) tile to 1/2” long for the 1/12 tile. Comes in a transparent, plastic storage case with attached lid (bottom is 6 ¼” x 4 ¼”; top of case is 6 ½ x 4 ½). ~ Ruth

      Factor tiles are for practicing multiplication up to 12, learning the meaning of prime numbers, understanding factors and creating factor diagrams. This set includes 25 purple starting hexagons (2”), 41 blue factor hexagons (2”) and 81 small green prime triangles (1”.)  The foam pieces are 5mm thick. The goal is to break down the starting hexagon number into its prime factors. Clear instructions are included.

    Purple starting hexagons have the numbers: 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21, 24, 25, 28, 30, 32, 33, 36, 40, 42, 45, 48, 50, 56, 60, 70, 77, 80, 81, and 90. The blue factor hexagons have the numbers: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 12. The green prime triangles have the numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11.
