    I love it when you can add to a product and get more mileage out of it. If you are using Unifix cubes as a math manipulative with your child, you can take it a step further using this number line set. These are 12 pieces of plastic panels with the numbers 1 through 120 (each piece has an increment of ten) across the top, #1-10 across the bottom (so you can count full tens and extra ones) and a channel between the two into which you insert the linked cubes. The panels alternate between gray and ivory making it very obvious where the tens start and stop. They interlock like a race track, end to end. Ridges and raised numbers across the bottom are a sensory delight for a kinesthetic learner, and the bold black numbers at the top are flat but stand out visually. A (very) small activity guide is included. Practice counting, place value, operations and fractions! Cubes are sold separately. ~ Sara

    Grab your standard Unifix cubes and get busy counting! This unique set includes a plastic base (4” x 9” x 1”) with 6 squares on top onto which you stack your cubes color by color. A background (10” x 10”) with lines on it (and blank on the back) clearly lets you count and compare your various colors. You can easily write on the background with a dry erase marker and wipe if off to use again and again. Not sure what to compare? Six little topic cards will give you some ideas (animals, colors, candy, holidays, fruits & sports). For example, have the students walk around with a notepad and count how many green items, how many yellow, etc., are in the room. They then gather that number of Unifix cubes and place them on the base. When you look at them all together, you can see that you have just created a graph against the background. It’s simple, clever and versatile! ~ Sara

    Here's a set of Cuisenaire rods for the younger set. These are pretty cute, too! Bigger than regular rods (each ant has a 1" space, so 10 logs are 10" long) – and made of a soft, pliable (and quiet) vinyl material, there are 20 double-sided logs (2 sets of 1-10). Each log has ants on one side and numbers on the other side. Preschool math possibilities abound – matching, sorting, sequencing, counting, "10" number bonds (number family), addition, and subtraction. The logs are 7/8" wide (tall) and about ½" thick. A molded plastic storage tray fits inside the box; a small eight-page activity booklet is included. ~ Janice

    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.

    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!).

    Do you think in pictures? Then you'll be great at this awesome game where the key is linking the pictures you see to common words and phrases. The game is primarily made up of 19 picture dice, each with a different image on every side. To start the round, all of the cubes are rolled and dumped out on the playing surface. Immediately, everyone grabs a pencil and paper pad and starts using the nineteen face-up images on the cubes to make compound words and common phrases before the timer runs out! Often the images can be used to stand for a number of words. For instance, there is a picture of a clock face on one of the dice. This could mean "clock," "watch," "time," or maybe even "hour" if your opponents agree! The image of a night sky could be "night," "stars," "evening," etc. Put the two pictures together, and you could make the phrase "night time." The challenge is in seeing the possibilities and matching them up within the time limit! When the timer runs out, everyone reads their list. Each player wins points for words and phrases on their list that nobody else has. This is also the perfect time to debate whether or not certain words or phrases really count (I remember someone at our Christmas party trying to squeak by with "fast cat" - hmmm)! The quick version of the game involves players simply taking the dice when they see a pair, limiting the possibilities with each grab. A good imagination, a great vocabulary, and some quick thinking are crucial. This is a great game for the family or for parties, as just about anyone can play. You'll always want to roll the cubes again for just one more round!

    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
