Curriculum Clean Out

Photobucket


Day two of the clean out and up for grabs are 4 sets of Wrap-Ups.

I have addition, subtraction, multiplication and matchmakers (shapes). These wrap ups are not new by any standard. In fact they have been well used, but they are each a complete set in great shape with lots of use left in them and ready for a new home.

For a change to win leave me a comment telling me the best math tool you've found. Facebook comments don't count. Click here to get to the original post. Giveaway will close on May 1st 8pm (CST) and a winner will be chosen by random.org. This giveaway is open to US residents only.

More to come tomorrow so be sure to check back. Don't forget to click on the button at the top of the post to see lots of other good stuff up for grabs. Good luck!

I have seen these and wondered about them, would love to win them to try out!!! The best thing I've found so far is just objects laying around the house that my son can count, add and subtract. heyjade[at]gmail

Marie said...

Oooh, these look fun! I think any small manipulative like beads or cubes has worked well for us.

Gretta said...

Jumping Joey's number lines are great math helpers (although we don't have them yet but have been able to use them from a friend). Thanks for the chance to win these awesome wrap-ups!

We have just used anything we come across in everyday life. Most recently we were comparing $1 bills to $5 bills, quarters to pennies, etc. (This was money found in Easter eggs and going into their piggy banks)

Thanks for the chance to win!

Speed drills with candy rewards. The reward is given for any attempt. We also keep track of their times so that they can beat their own best attempt. If they work on it each day, they always improve. Amazing results for just m&m's a day.

Oh, these are lots of fun. I used them when I taught in school. I'd love to win them for my kids. Thanks for the chance to win! A great math maniupulative that we use are little treats (like m&ms). They're a great motivator :)

Winston Manor said...

My Kindergartener would say that M&M's are the best thing for math but we have found anything they can do with their hands and w/o a pencil works best. I have been eyeing these but haven't gotten them yet so this would be great to win!

Kelly said...

I loved using these when I was teaching. So far homeschooling the best math tool I have found is the counting bears. My daughter loves them.

Karyn said...

Well this is our first year homeschooling (K) so I have not encountered much. My little math whiz uses counting bears on occasion, but we also LOVE the BJU Press math. We haven't tried anything else, but we are both enjoying it.

A friend of mine used to have these. They are great. Thanks for offering them in this giveaway.
For math we use a lot of different manipulatives, like beans. I love teaching math while we are baking and making orange juice. Plus money is great.

My son loves math, so please enter us to win. He adores his learning clock and any other manipulatives I can find!

Jennie Shellenberger said...

We love math manipulatives. We use the double die quite a bit, but my far the favorite are simple sea creature counting beads. We'd love to try out these wrap-ups though. I've been eyeing them for a year now.
