    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

    Armed with this book and a small set of pattern blocks, you'll be ready to have some fun with your young one exploring all kinds of math concepts. Similar to the Math Discoveries books, this volume has a little broader range while retaining the fun flavor of those explorations. Every "lesson" has a Focal Point which explains its goal. This is followed by a short materials list (usually just pattern blocks) and instructions for leading the activity. A nice additional feature is the Guided Learning section which gives you a little scripted dialogue to use after the activity. An extension activity is also provided at the bottom of each teacher page which invites you to "Explore More with PB" (PB being a little mascot character). Facing this teaching page is the activity page itself – very crisply and cleanly done. While the activities are fun and informal, the amount and breadth of learning is impressive. After an exploration and discovery unit, this 133-page volume covers numbers & operations, geometry, measurement, algebra and probability & statistics. Activities within these units are orderly, beginning with simple concepts and building to more complex. For example, the Algebra section begins with simple patterns and sequences and culminates with an activity titled "Guess the Robot's Secret" which introduces functions. So while "playing" and having guided fun with pattern blocks, your child is getting some real meat in their math diet. The groundwork you lay here will pay off later when some of these mental connections are already in place for higher level math work.

    Pattern blocks aren't just for the little ones. The activities in this book provide practice for the middle school grades with fractions, symmetry, classifying, area and perimeter, patterning, probability and statistics, and algebraic concepts. Using pattern blocks (sold separately), students will hone their problem solving skills in 60 different activities that range from playing games to covering printed designs with a variety of pattern blocks, but they have to figure out which blocks to use. Every activity includes teaching instructions, blackline masters, and suggestions for extensions. Answers aren't included in the book but are available at a link provided.

    Since some of the games are meant for 2-3 players, this would be a good activity for family or co-op play. Dust off those old pattern blocks and put them to good use again. CD included that contains a digital book with virtual manipulative. ~ Donna

    Create unique geometric designs using pattern blocks and task cards. These fun task cards depict pattern block design outlines, and ask children how many and what type of blocks are needed to fill in an outlined design, to continue a design, or to complete other tasks. Pattern block outlines are true-to-size, so children can lay pattern blocks right on the card to solve the problem, or create a design. This set includes 22 single-sided 8.5" x 11" task cards and instructions. ~ Anh
