Friends, I have a great opportunity for you to try out some fabulous manipulatives courtesy of Mother Goose Time. On this Manipulative Monday, I am thrilled to announce that not only are we going to be able to share some of our favorite ideas for using manipulatives, but also give you the chance to win two mystery bags of manipualtives of your very own.
There’s more…..several of the Mother Goose Time bloggers have teamed together in a link up at the bottom of this page to offer you more ideas on using manipulatives and more chances to win.
That’s right. Each blogger has a separate giveaway for two additional bags of manipulatives.
You can enter them all!
What is a manipulative you ask?
Well, friends it’s anything you and yours kids can use and play with, i.e. manipulate in the pursuit of enjoyable learning.
Manipulatives are perfect for sorting, matching, or practicing colors, patterns, math, and even story telling!
For a little inspiration, here are ten of our favorite moments from the past two years playing with Mother Goose Time Manipulatives.
We used them to sort, cook, and serve manipulative soup.
We used them to work on letter recognition as part of an egg scavenger hunt.
We used them to learn to count.
We used then to practice our colors and patterns.
We used them to practice basic addition through hide and seek in the dark.
We used them to practice understanding small, medium, and large.
We used them to learn our shapes and improve our fine motor skills.
We used them to make tracks in play dough.
We used them to run an indoor relay and get in some gross motor on a cold winter day.
We used them in imaginative free play and most importantly we used them to play together.
Here are just a few more!
Good Luck and Happy Manipulative Monday!
