     Fractions in equations can sometimes be very difficult for students to understand. Using the Hands-On Equations method, students can systematically learn how to solve equations that contain fractions. This set is intended for one student and includes a set of red and green number cubes, a flat laminated scale, set of plastic fraction blocks, Level I and Level II lesson books (12 lessons total), reproducible worksheets and answer key. These are the same number cubes and laminated scale used in the Hands-On Equations System. Each worksheet has 8 equations, 4 from the current lesson and 4 from previous lessons. The lessons build systematically, so you will want to do them sequentially. For your kinesthetic, visual students, this is a wonderful tutorial for better understanding fractions in the setting of equations. ~ Donna

    Give your spelling and vocab skills a workout. The goal is to see how many words you can find in three minutes using the 14 cubes that have just been rolled. Roll the cubes, place them on the 12 square play mat (tear-resistant, canvas-y surface), roll the number cube (tells you the minimum number of letters you must have in a word for it to count for that round), turn over the shake it up card (special instructions for each round) and set the timer. Go! Since the words have to be at least four letters long (and might have to be longer for any particular round), youll have to have to dig deep into your stash of known words. Includes 15 letter cubes, one number cube, a sand timer, 12 shake it up cards, the play mat and instructions packaged into a plastic jar that doubles as the shaking cup. For two or more players. Takes about 15 minutes.

    Think dice – just larger. These plastic 1.25" cubes have numbers or arithmetic signs rather than dots. Use them for practicing mental math skills – or as required by your math curriculum. The sixteen number cubes are light green with black numbers while the four sign (+, +, -, -, =, and =) cubes are yellow with black symbols. There are six cubes with numbers 0-5, six with numbers 4-9, two with 10-15, and 2 with 15-20. ▲CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs ~ Janice

    Building a solid foundation with basic math skills is so important; children will continue to build on them for the rest of their math lives. Making sure that the essentials are solid can be done with extra practice and activities and this book provides over 250 suggestions that can help from kindergarten to third grade.

    The book is divided by grade level, so you know which activities will be appropriate. The first page of each grade level offers a list of items to be used with the activities. These are items that you may already have in your home but feel free to substitute. At the Pre-kindergarten level, the book suggests about 30 items: vinyl non-skid spots, beanbags, abacus, ball, buttons, hot glue, index cards, number cubes, counters, paper cups, manipulatives, letter tiles, blocks, plastic containers, erasers, puzzle pieces, string, pencils, ribbons, calendar, stickers, interlocking cubes, pen tops, old keys, two containers, marbles, crackers, pictures of animals, dish, cardboard rectangle and tape or chalk. In the first activity you are asked to put vinyl non-skid spots on the floor and children are asked to follow directions to go ___ steps forward or back. If you don’t have the non-skid spots, for example, you can substitute sidewalk chalk and do the activity outside or use tape to put a pattern on your floor or even cut shapes out of construction paper and tape them on the floor. The idea is that they have a trail to follow and count. The supply list is similar at each level with some variation and additional items needed at the higher grades.

    The front of the book offers instruction for the parent/teacher for incorporating activities into your curriculum and information on standards met. The appendices include reproducible pages that consist of a skills inventory (great for keeping track of your child’s math progress), rubrics and pages needed for some of the activities. These same pages are found in pdf format on the resource cd in the back of the book. The activities in this 168-page book add a multi-sensory aspect to learning the foundational material needed in math and would be a great addition for your kinesthetic learners. ~ Donna

    Abablocks are twenty sliding, wooden, numbered cubes on two 21" rods (ensuring that blocks will not rotate, just slide). They can be used with very young children to teach counting, skip counting to 5s, simple addition, subtraction, multiples and multiplication, division and remainders, and least common multiples. Kind of a cross between the number line and abacus, the blocks let children solve problems tactually and visually. To perform simple addition, they just "slide" the number of blocks over then look at the answer on the last block in the group. Missing addend? Slide the first group over, then see how many more would need to slide over to include the block with the sum. For subtraction, start with the number of blocks in the minuend slid over to the left, then slide the number of blocks in the subtrahend to the right. The last block remaining will have the answer. Missing subtrahend? Just slide over the number of blocks in the minuend and the number of blocks you'd need to slide back to leave the difference is the missing amount. Learning multiplication facts to 5's will be easy with sides of multiples of 2, 3, 4, and 5 painted (one multiple/color for each side of the cube). 2's are in blue, 3's in green, 4's in red, and 5's in yellow. To count by 3's, turn the abablocks to the green side. Every multiple of three will be in green (other blocks just in natural finish). How many 3s in 18? A cinch to see with this device. Just count the number of green blocks to 18. Divide 15 by 4? Go to the fours side (easier to tell groups of four here), push blocks through 15 to the left, then push groups of four to the right (and count) until there are no groups of four left. Answer: 3 groups of 4 and 3 blocks remaining. Blocks that are colored on more than one side (like 12) are common multiples of the numbers corresponding to those colors. I would describe this as a robust math manipulative; it is a handy, sturdy, no-loose-pieces teaching device for demonstrating many math operations and concepts to young children (with no choking hazard!).

    I'm not sure what's more likeable here – the simple concept or the cute packaging! The small, portable game consists of nine picture dice packaged in a sturdy flip-out box about the size of a card deck. The dice are printed with simple black-and-white pictures on each face for a total of 54 different images. A few examples include: a clock, a bee, a shooting star, a key, a flashlight, an apple, fire, a magnifying glass, a question mark, a book, a light bulb, and a tree. Originally designed for storytelling, there are three game ideas included inside the cover, each of which entails rolling the dice and using some or all of the dice to create a story. You can modify the number of dice, play solo or as a group for more variety. Of course, you could also use a roll of the dice to pick a theme for extemporaneous speaking, to inspire young children to write a story (using just one or two cubes), or as writing prompts. I'm sure you can come up with some of your own educational and party ideas as well! - Jess
