    Oh, the smell of rain, fresh dirt, and…spring! Doesn’t it make you want to get outside and start growing things? Square foot gardening is a great, easy way to have a garden with your kids. It starts with building a simple box to house the garden; for children they recommend a 3’ by 3’ box to allow kids to reach everything inside. The box sits on top of the ground, on top of a weed barrier, or you can put a plywood bottom on it if you want the garden to be portable! Wood strips divide your garden into 9 squares. Then in goes your special soil blend, which is full of plant nutrients and contains no weed seeds (unlike the soil in your yard!), so the only weeds you’ll be pulling out of there are whatever gets dropped inside, which is very minimal. The soil stays loose, so pulling those occasional weeds out is something a child can handle. Then kids get to decide what to plant in each square. The book is full of information, and talks about tons of different things you can plant, how many of each plant can be supported in a square foot, tips and tricks for making the small space work for growing almost anything, and how to care for and protect your garden. Easy-to-follow directions accompany each step and other fun activity ideas are included. After perusing this book, I couldn’t wait to go out and get my square foot garden started with my kids, and now we are enjoying the fruits (and vegetables!) of our efforts!

    This tool is made to be used with standard 1cm base-ten blocks to help children think of whole numbers from 1-199 in terms of hundreds, tens, and ones. The sturdy blue foam frame (11"x 7") comes with 21 number tiles (digits 0-9). Using standard base ten units, rods and flats with the number tiles helps your child picture the numbers more clearly as they place the blocks into the three sections of the frame and attach a number tile to them – a definite plus for a student who is struggling with place value as a concept. A small guide with activities and noting CCSS correlations is included in the set. Number tiles are about an inch square and 10mm thick. Base-ten blocks are not included. ~ Sara

    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

    A hundred-number-chart is a 10x10 grid to write numbers 1-100. Use it to teach skip counting, develop number sense, multiples of 3, odds or evens. The dry-erase surface allows you to use colors to show a variety of skills, then erase it and have your student write them in. On one side is a large grid with 1" squares. The other side shows 4 small grids with 1cm squares. ~ Sara

    This classic tangram game offers a fun challenge for one or two players. There are 30 cards with a beginning level on one side and an advanced level on the other side. The beginner level will have color-coded designs while the advanced level will only include the outline of the design. In the two-player game, each player will take 1 tangram set consisting of 7 pieces (2 large triangles, 1 medium sized triangle, 2 small triangles, 1 square, and 1 parallelogram). The first player to complete the design wins the card and the first player collecting 10 cards wins the game. Solutions to the advanced level are on the back of the cards (beginner level). For individual play, choose a level of difficulty and try to master all the designs as fast as you can! Game includes 14 color-coded pieces printed with non-toxic inks and made of 90% recycled paper. ~ Gina

       Music, animals, and little hands-sized books? Sounds like a good way to introduce letters! Each letter has its own song (sort of: X, Y, Z are combined) and its own little book. The books are 5.75” square and have eight pages. A short verse/song introduces the letter and its animal friend. Then follows four pages, each with a letter-starting word and its picture. Another short verse/song concludes the book along with a composite picture to find all the letter’s words. Letters are shown in upper and lower case. The little books are colorful with glossy/plastic covers. The songs are done by a variety of singers and the song’s tempo/style is based on its animal friend. Vowel sounds are all true “short” vowel sounds (eggplant, egg, elephant; iguana, etc.). Books and CD all fit in a small box with a carry handle. An excellent early phonics resource. ~ Janice

      Many of the math readers on the market today are for early elementary or higher, but this little series is specifically intended as an introduction at the preschool level. This is a set of 25 small readers (5.5” square) that vary in length from 7 to 11 pages, each with a specific focus: “Zero Means There Are None, Count to 10 in Color, 100 is a Lot.”An included parent guide offers ideas for each book before, during, and after reading. A small workbook (same size as readers) is also included and has one page to be completed after reading each book. Children can trace and practice writing numbers on the last few pages of the workbook, 0-20 and 100. A sheet of 16 reward stickers is also included to encourage your math learner. ~ Donna

      Every design is like a little pixel paint by number! Only you use colored pencils, and there are no numbers, but the idea is the same! It’s really quite cleverly designed. Your design page is on small graph paper (.25”) with a letter in each square. Each page has a color guide to follow. A may be moss green, B may be black, C may be sky blue, etc. You then color in all of the squares with that letter the same color until you fill up the grid. Each image will be 6.5”x8.75” and you can flip to the back of the book to see the finished products. You will use between 7 and 26 colors per image; many are in the same color family resulting in a really cool finished picture! There are 65 pictures in all, including: a toucan, sailboat, sand castle, cow, penguin, barn, sunflower, windmill, tea pot, hot air balloon, lion, kangaroo, and lots more. There is something satisfying about filling in the boxes and watching an image appear! It’s a great gift item, too, since it comes with a set of 5 double-ended colored pencils (10 colors.) All pages are perforated with a design on one side of the page. Spiral bound, sc. ~Sara

      Practice learning the calendar with colorful, strong magnets. Kids love to wake up and change the date on their perpetual calendar! The large calendar is a single layer of magnet 12” x 14” that can stick to a refrigerator, file cabinet or magnetic white board. Store the various little magnets right on the board itself. There is a spot to show the day of the week, the numbers in the date, the month, the season, and the daily weather – even if the temperature feels hot or cold. All of these words are on separate flat magnets in cheerful colors. Four small holes in the corners let you attach it to a non-magnetic wall with pushpins or nails. The small calendars have a different format.  These come in a little magnetic folder (7” square) to store all of your wee magnet pieces. It stays shut with a hook and loop dot. On the front is a grid to place the day, the date numbers, the month, weather and even special events like holidays and birthdays. A sturdy cord is knotted through the top from which it can be carried or hung on a wall or even a doorknob. Pink is a two-tone pastel/bright pink. Blue is a two-tone aqua/pale blue. Not only are these calendars a great teaching tool, they are cute enough for gift giving! Think of one as a sibling gift or maybe in a spring Easter basket. ~Sara
