    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

    As a kid, I was always building houses with my Legos® and rearranging my bedroom. I was a creative thinker and made an awesome Barbie house out of cardboard boxes! This large set of model panels is for the next-step builder. If your child likes to sketch building designs, they can use this set to build their designs in 3-D before actually getting out the hammer and nails. Artec is a Japanese company; directions are visual and in English (and also in Japanese). The pieces are made of sturdy plastic and follow a 1/15mm scale: 1 mm in the scale represents 15 mm in actuality. This set has various sized ivory plastic panels to make floors and walls. You get 16 large square panels (180 x 180 mm), 42 rectangles, 28 skinny rectangles and 64 square connectors. The panels have a grid pattern and pegs on them, so you push the pegs into the grid wherever you want a wall. Windows and doorways are easy to incorporate. This is a BIG set! Also included are sheets of cardstock printed with furniture/appliances to cut and fold into beds, tables, etc. It is a little tricky to get used to the metric scale system scale. This is perfect for the budding architect and gives you so much room to be creative with your designs. The set comes in a large, sturdy plastic tote w/lid & handles that lock the lid (19" x 13 x 7.5" ). ~ Sara

    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.

    Quilting has such a history in America. It also requires math skills to create a pattern! This set allows your creative and visual learners to explore and express their flair for color and pattern. In the kit are 6 reproducible, quilt 8" square patterns. They are a mix of squares and triangles that look familiar, but I couldn’t tell you the traditional pattern names! The patterned papers are already cut into squares (1.25") and triangles. You get 5 patterns and a solid in complimentary oranges, blues and greens, totaling 1140 pieces. Glue pieces to the pattern paper or make new combinations again and again. Essentially a mosaic: what a fun way to teach geometry to littles! You may even spark an interest in quilting with fabric. ~ Sara

    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

    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.

    Early in our nation's history, the primary reason for education was to allow each person to read the Bible for himself. In the same spirit comes this complete first grade curriculum. While it incorporates history, science, art, and math, the heart of the program is phonics-based reading instruction with Biblical emphasis. This program was revised in 2013 and features a new title, changes to the teacher's manual and new package resources.

    Phonics instruction begins with a quick review of letter names and sounds using full-color alphabet flash cards, then follows with in-depth, step-by-step teaching of all phonics constructs. Phonics lesson plans teach new skills while reviewing previously-learned skills. By Lesson 31, students are able to read Bible stories in a special beginning Bible Reader. The reader uses a thematic approach to teach Bible history in chronological order from Genesis to Revelation. Students are expected to retell the Bible story, and then create a keepsake Bible notebook in which they summarize and illustrate Bible stories. (Linda used a similar approach years ago to teach Bible to our older children, and they enjoyed it very much.) Weekly memory verses selected from Proverbs help to develop character and handwriting at the same time. Hands-on projects are designed to help children understand the world of the Bible. These include creating timelines using the included figures, making Bible times costumes, and celebrating a Sabbath meal. Science focuses on the wonders of God's creation, and uses three Usborne books (Things Outdoors, Science with Water, and Science with Plants), which are included with the curriculum. Math incorporates hands-on activities, math manipulatives and a math workbook (Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2). If you prefer a more serious approach to math (as we do), you can add another math program.

    The Deluxe Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student book; student worksheets; a Bible Notebook; Bible Reader; Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2; My Big Book of 5-Minute Devotions; Unifix Cubes; a small geared clock; addition and subtraction flashcards; wood pattern blocks; Pattern Animals; Things Outdoors; Science with Water; Science with Plants; Honey for a Child's Heart; Peter and the Wolf CD; Enjoying Art Together; and Drawing with Children. ~ Bob
