In the Garden Critter Counters Giveaway!

It is time for another fun giveaway from Learning Resources!  Spring is here and I am so happy to have these adorable, brightly colored In the Garden Critter Counters for the girls and a set to give away!

Hands-on manipulatives are very important to many of our learning routines and these are just too cute! I was super excited to be able to review them because I knew they would be a huge hit!  In fact, there was a bit of fighting going on when we first took these critters out…but we won't talk about that.


What is included:
*72 counters that come in 6 different shapes and colors
Critters include:
- dragonflies
- snails
- grasshoppers
- caterpillars
-spiders
-bees
Both of my girls, 4 and 6, LOVED this set!  
For Sophia, we used them to practice patterns

 We even pulled out a pair of tongs that we had to help build up those fine motor skills.
The pattern:
slug, snail, grasshopper, spider, 
 slug, snail, grasshopper, spider...
Sorting
We sorting by color and then by flying and non-flying critters...

Audrey used them for a basic introduction to fractions. She picked out 10 critters and we started to group them and write fractions about each grouping!  This went VERY well and really helped solidify this concept.




Now for a chance to win a set of these ADORABLE In the Garden Critter Counters!  Just use the Rafflecopter below to enter!

These are just the right touch for boys and girls. Since I have 14 boys and only nine girls, it is important to meet the boys interests and have the girls join in.

As a math teacher, I could really use these figures to help teach math in the classroom. Figures like these would really keep their attention and thus help the students to learn their math lessons.
