Are you ready for a giveaway?
There’s a million great things about Mother Goose Time
, but one of our top 5 things we love is the new manipulatives we get each month. Manipulatives are hands-on objects children use to work out problems. They manipulate objects to learn.
Mother Goose Time
sends us 2 new sets of manipulatives each month. One set is usually some kind of counter or sorter, such as a batch of pink and red plastic pigs, or an assortment of colored bears of varying sizes.
The other type of manipulative is usually one that deals with reasoning and logic, such as beakers for pouring or tangram pattern pieces.
What’s our favorite way to use manipulatives?
Sweet Pea is 2.5 years old. Right now she loves to match things together and search and find items. Placing our manipulatives in fun textures is one of our favorite ways to use them. I buried our bears when we did some one to one correspondence which you can read about here
. We’ve hidden them in sand, and they are always invited into the bath tub or water table for more water play.
She also loves to match, so finding 2 of the same color or shape is one of her favorite things to do. “Look Momma…2 yellow trucks.”
Ideas on how to use Manipulatives with Kids:
- Create Patterns
- Sort by a Characteristic
- Work out Math Problems (use 3 red pigs, bring in 2 pink pigs. How many pigs are there now?)
- Use them to tell a story.
- One to One correspondence
- Just play with them!
