Math About My House.

When I attended a workshop with Patsy Kanter she said. . .  "You know pennies are the best math manipulatives, you can still get 100 of them for a dollar."  That comment still makes me smile.  I love using pennies for little ones in math.  They are easy to use and you are able to teach money and basic math with them.  My daughter enjoys using them with her Rod and Staff math.

Place value  magnets

This was my math purchase for winter.  My son was having trouble with adding big numbers and place value.  I found these magnets.  For my son they were the key to learning place value.   We used our magnetic dry erase board to work with them.  You could use your fridge as well.
