ANOTHER COOL LINK: I'm really enjoying the Living Math Yahoo! group these days. People post some of the most amazing links to free stuff on the Yahoo! group. If you're not already a member of their group I would definately suggest joining. I thought that this link was really cool. It shows you how to make Montessori number rods with supplies that you probably have around your house.
I don't know if anyone has ever used this book before. It's called Janice VanCleave's Play and Find Out about Math: Easy Activities for Young Children. It's really a very fun book! I give it 2 thumbs up. The book offers very simple, yet fun activities to introduce math to young children in a concrete manner.
Janice VanCleave has lots of other books similar to this one. I really want to order the math one for older children, but my budget is slim pickins right now. However, on Amazon right now it's selling for A PENNY used. Seriously? 1 penny???
Disclosure: I just like to be honest with everyone that reads my blogs. I DO make a certain percentage of profit on any link that you click on from my blog. However, please know that when the book only cost $.01 it's definately not something to fret over. So, rest assure that I'm not becoming a millionaire at my blog reader's cost. : )
