       Use your Unifix® Cubes (sold separately) to practice and better understand base ten and place value. The plastic base measure 3” x 9” with ten posts on which to place your cubes. A 100-grid card can be placed behind the cubes (in the slot), so students can more easily see how many cubes are in each stack – (great for graphing!) Forty number label cards can be placed on the ledge in front of the cubes for labeling purposes. A guide is included for suggested activities. Students can practice math concepts from very basic, up through decimals and fractions.  ~ Donna

    Ten-frames help students visualize numbers 1-10 by showing a picture of 10 squares. This set of 60 bright yellow cards, each containing an image of a ten-frame, is designed for use with Unifix cubes (linking cubes in various colors.) These frames have images of Unifix cubes (green or orange), ranging in any number from 0-10. You can use these with your student in a variety of ways. For example, use them as flashcards and have your child say the number as they see the filled-in squares. Add real Unifix cubes in the empty spaces to complete the 10. Make them a different color and you can add and subtract. Made from glossy cardstock, 6” x 3.5”, with rounded corners. ~ 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

    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

    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

    Ten-frames are a math manipulative used in the Singapore method to help your child think in tens, but they can be used with any math curriculum. This set has four magnetic frames with forty Unifix magnets making it a good value for co-ops, classrooms or multiple children. Teach with these on a magnetic whiteboard or let children use them on a lapboard (or cookie sheet!) Demonstrate addition, subtraction, and place value to help students learn to visualize numbers. Great for a visual or a hands-on learner! Frames look like flat ice-cube trays made of heavy blue magnetic sheets, two rows of five squares each. Each measures 12.5" x 5" and the Unifix cube inserts are 1.75" squares in orange and green (20 of each). ~ Sara

    For me, this book provides great understanding and guidance on how to introduce math to my little ones. I find this book so valuable and necessary, because I, like many teachers, tend to think in terms of what my children should know and what skills they need to learn to succeed in math instead of how children naturally make sense of the world around them and how I can present opportunities to help them solidify those concepts, guiding without getting in their way. (I confess, it is frustrating to me when I feel like I'm explaining something clearly and my children aren't "getting it." This book reminded me that children's minds are still developing and they aren't always physically ready for certain concepts – and telling and insisting is NOT the correct way to handle it! Rather, they will learn on their own through exploration. It's my job to provide those experiences.) It's easy to teach children to count to 20 or learn the number of objects on cards. But what we often miss in our approach is that children are giving the correct answers through rote memorization or answering as their teacher expects them too, not actually understanding and learning the underlying concepts or thinking for themselves. Thus these children may appear to have great mathematical understanding, but have actually not had the opportunity to make sense of math concepts for themselves. Instead of focusing on getting the right answers and good performance, we need to offer activities and opportunities that allow children to naturally make sense of mathematics. Instead of trying to insist to children what is right, we need to ask questions that show us what they are thinking and what they know. When we follow this approach to learning, seeing the process not as teaching but as developing, children increase their true understanding and can handle complex ideas instead of the oversimplified ones we often present that achieves only "false" understanding. All this insight from just the introduction! That wisdom is found amidst the unpacking of the five areas of mathematical standards as outlined by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, each of which is defined and then examined by how that process is learned by children and what it really means. The second chapter prepares you for teaching mathematics by sharing about the teacher's role (remember, encouraging thoughtfulness, not just correction or precise language), what children understand, and how to set up the classroom. The third chapter details the general learning goals for each of the five math areas and provides a list of the different activities that will help achieve this goal in the different settings, while the fourth briefly explains each setting. "Settings" refers to different teaching methods used by teachers, which include exploration time, circle time as a whole group, small-group time, individual learning time, and throughout the day. You can see from this list that this book is geared towards classroom use, but I found that it is just as beneficial in a homeschool setting; though certain activities are purposed for circle time or small-group time, they are perfectly able to be used, as is, with one or two children. Now that you understand how children learn math and your role, the next section contains the 73 actual activities, organized by the five settings. Each activity is formatted the same: the materials needed, the lesson focus, a summary of the task (with scripts), interaction questions, observations that you might note, and examples, if applicable. Two appendices guide you through planning math time as far as the time to allot for different activities and the order of introducing certain exercises and provide you with blackline masters that are used in different activities. Many materials are things you'll already have around the house, but you should note that the book also references several manipulatives including pattern blocks, Unifix cubes, geoboards, color tiles, wooden cubes, tangrams, and attribute blocks, though on-hand alternatives are sometimes suggested. This one might take a bit to digest, but you will be confident that you are truly building mathematical understanding as opposed to merely passing along information, and in doing so, equipping your child for real future mathematical success. – Steph
