Flash cards are always helpful for remembering math facts, but those usually require a partner and a specific deck. This game is essentially for this kind of practice, but without requiring others. Players go through a storyline, playing challenges such as collecting number bubbles to add up to a certain number, creating functional math operations, and many more to progress. One such game, where you must solve an operation while escaping from a rampaging robot (lest you be teleported back to the beginning) helps particularly reinforce the quick thinking simulated in flash cards. There are four levels of "Addition Subtraction" difficulties and four levels of "Multiplication Division" difficulties, which determine the variety of games and the types of challenges. This software is a fun way to reinforce math facts, especially for younger ages. Windows (up to Vista) & Mac. ~ Stephen

This simple dice game is a fun way to improve mental math skills. The game includes three standard 6sided dice, two fancy 12sided dice, a travel bag, and an instruction booklet. Rules of the game are simple. First, you roll the two 12sided dice and multiply the two numbers to get a "Target Number." Then you roll the three 6sided dice and try to combine those numbers in any way (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, powers, roots, etc) to match or get as close as possible to the "Target Number." Play solo or with as many people as desired.

Kids will easily pick up their states, capitals, and U.S. geography as they yell, slap cards down, and use their quickthinking skills to win state cards and put an impossibly scrambledup United States back to rights. Each player receives 5 State Cards to create their own "State Line", along with a U.S. map. Then, as a Scramble card is uncovered, players race to fit one of their states to the Scramble card, with clues such as matching the color of the state to the Scramble card, or finding words or names within the state capital. Each of the state cards contains the name of the state, a state outline map, the capital city as well as the state nickname, and, of course, any of this information is fair game to be matched with a Scramble card. When a player is able to match one of their State cards with a Scramble card, they immediately slap it down on the Scramble card and yell out the name of the state. Or, a "Go the Distance" card is played, and the players have to determine which of them has a state that is the closest to that in question, and of course, if they have the lucky card, more slapping and yelling goes on. The game can be played with 24 players, and several variations are included to keep it challenging for players of all ages. Loud, noisy, and boisterous as it is, there's plenty of hidden motivations here for them to pick up vital information about each state  and remember it!  Jess

Young children will appreciate this handson 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

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 problemsolving. 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.

Five subjects conveniently bound into one colossal, full color workbook. Subjects (English, reading comprehension, writing, reading skills [including spelling/vocabulary] and math) are divided into colorcoded sections for easy identification. This series covers a great deal of material focusing, of course, on basic skills. These workbooks do not have the breadth or depth that separate programs for individual subjects would have. However, if you're after basic skills mastery in the primary grades, this is a viable, costeffective option. Teaching suggestions and answer keys included. 540+ pages. ~ Anh

The Lab Sheet Annotations contains the specific instructions for use of the children's lab sheets. It is the daily teaching companion of teachers using the Miquon Math Lab Materials. Each topic is introduced by a discussion of the mathematics underlying the children's work along with teaching suggestions and anecdotes.
The book contains a complete set of the 650 student lab sheets (reduced in size) that appear in the workbooks. The intervening text indicates the objectives of the sheets and ways in which the students may use them. Included are preliminary activities, teaching suggestions, and followup activities for many of the lab sheets. The annotations provide questions that the teacher can ask to reinforce the concepts underlying the problems on the sheets. The text also suggests activities for practice in applying those concepts. Where the procedures and objectives are apparent at a glance, lab sheets are annotated.

Just the right stuff! That's what you'll be thinking as you use this warm and inviting reading program from Memoria Press. The Study Guides are really a worktext (horizontal orientation) that provides the student with vocabulary and comprehension worksheets. The teacher needs to take a quick peek at two pages at the beginning that give the plan for the Word Study, Read, Comprehension, and Language (introductory grammar) segments of each lesson. The Just For Fun section is selfexplanatory. There's writing involved (7/16" lines with dotted midline) but the top binding makes it easy for either righthanded students or lefties. The StoryTime guide covers five classic children's books in 16 lessons. More StoryTime provides another 16 lessons and seven children's books. ~ Janice

For those using Mathematical Reasoning by Critical Thinking Company, here is the next step after finishing level G. Released in 2018, this course uses the same approach to help students apply reasoning and skill for higher level math. Understanding PreAlgebra helps lay the foundation that will build confidence before going on to Algebra I.
This book is standardsbased and topics are organized logically. There are 15 chapters Family of Numbers, Working with Integers, Working with Rational Numbers, Ratio/Proportion/Percent, Percent Applications, Algebraic Expressions, Equations and Solving Word Problems, Inequalities and Applications, Understanding Square Roots and Irrational Numbers, TwoDimensional Geometry, Understanding Volume and Surface Area, Graphing on the Coordinate Plane, Transformations and Congruency, Understanding Functions, and Probability and Statistics. This is a reproducible, consumable workbook with plenty of white space for working problems.
One of the program's strengths is the abundance of word problems. These are taught using charts and tables, which offer visuals to help students interpret the problem. Chapters are divided into concepts (each is typically 2 pages); cover one concept a day in order to work through the book in one school year. Each concept begins with an explanation or definition; colored sample boxes offer visual instruction or explanation, followed by an exercise or practice. Every chapter is finished out with a Chapter Review, which could be used as a test. Chapter Reviews aren't cumulative but a review of that chapter only.
Some helpful resources included are a glossary of important math vocabulary, a list of formulas, table of square roots, and answers to the exercises with explanations for some of the more difficult problems. A twopart final exam is also included, which covers all material in the book.
Prepare your student for high school math and standardized testing with the logical, thorough approach found in Understanding PreAlgebra. 442 pgs, pb. ~ Donna
