We work on patterns all year and snap cubes are perfect for this.
I believe a teacher can never have enough manipulatives. I have collected so many over the years. No matter how old they are the kids love being able to complete the activites independently.
And That's What's It's All About!!
I have a ton of folder games and the kids love them.
Thanx to so many good blogs I drug out the play-doh to use for teaching, not just playing.
Dollar Tree erasers are great for sorting and patterns.
