Math Manipulatives

Do you have a child having problems with their basic math facts??? Are you looking for something other than the standard flashcards to use with them?? I was just reading over at Sadie's--It's A Boy's Life and she has a cool manipulative using craft sticks/popsicle sticks and little pockets in a manila file folder!! You really need to go check it out!!!

More than Flashcards

Got any other cool ideas for math manipulatives?? I would love to hear about it!! I have a couple of hands-on learners that benefit from learning some other way than worksheets!

almart is super cheap anyways...LOL. Right now...go to your local walmart and purchase a magazin called ALL You. It has a pink cover and is down the aisles near the registers,,mine was 1.45 or something like that. There are tons of awesome coupons inside...$1 off any Kotex product! THose liners are only $1 a pkg at walmart.
There are 5 coupons inside that are buy 3 Kraft products get something free. One was get hotdogs, one crystal light, crackers, kraft cheese and kraft dressing. The three Kraft products I bought were koolaid at .20 a I spent a total of .60 and got Crystal Light for $2.98 FREE! AWESOME...same with the other products! I have been doing ALOT of researching on couponing and joined some message boards where I found great advice and tips and Im doing GREAT! Im so happy! I just started a binder for coupons as well! Good luck and let me know if u do it!
