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
Both of my girls, 4 and 6, LOVED this set!
For Sophia, we used them to practice patterns…
slug, snail, grasshopper, spider,
slug, snail, grasshopper, spider...
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.
