Perfect for teaching Math Common Core

Comments about Penguins on Ice™ Math Activity Set:
I teach first grade. I have ten of these sets. You can use them for so many different common core math standards. I use the penguins to teach missing addend, using the game How many penguins in the cave? I use them to teach adding using three addends by adding three different color groups of penguins as well as story problems. Great for fact penquin families, too. The best part is, by taking a second set, and dividing it up among five other sets, I can actually have students manipulate up to 120. Link 12 ice bars together, and students can actually visualize 120. Perfect for common core for first grade. There are so many other games and standards I teach with it. Highly recommend this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too cool for words
from Tuscany, Italy
About Me Education Oriented, Private school Director
Teaching colours is a fundamental part of young children's education in English and this little set finally goes beyond the 6 colour counters and presents 10 colours, allowing for sentence order of adjectives before noun, sequencing and a host of other uses and is perfect for my groups of maximum 10 kids. This is one of the best things I have ever bought from Learning Resources and my school is full of LR products.
AWESOME math learning tool!
By A Mom's Take
from Phoenix, AZ
About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children
I grew up learning math with those snap-together cubes where we would practice addition, subtraction, counting by 10 and other concepts. To me, those blocks were an extremely helpful learning tool so I was so excited when I saw this extremely cute spin off the traditional cube counting systems. These penguins are absolutely adorable and since they come in 10 different colors they can also be used for patterns and sequences as well! I absolutely love this set! It is really easy for both my 3 and 5 year old boys to use and such a colorful and fun concept that they love playing with it! I'll start a pattern for my 5 year old and he loves filling in and finishing off the pattern. We've worked on both addition and subtraction as well and I feel the visualization has made a huge impact on him picking up those skills!** I received Penguins on Ice Math Activity Set free of charge to review on my website, A Mom's Take.
