Common Core State Standards Alignment: Operations & Algebraic Thinking, Numbers & Operations, Counting & Cardinality

Skill Development:

Basic Concepts - Use these rubber penguins to teach basic concepts like color identification, matching, and identifying similarities and differences.

Math - March these penguins all in a row to introduce AB patterning! Up to 10 students can practice this skill - hand them each a bar and a handful of penguins to create a simple reoccurring pattern.

Fine Motor - To get these penguins to stand at attention, students use manual skills to pick them up one by one, turn and flip to position them and then hold them and firmly push each on the pegs of the ice bars. This helps students practice fine motor skills like pincer grasp, eye-hand coordination, and finger and hand strength.

Comments about Learning Resources 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.

    Comments about Learning Resources Penguins on Ice™ Math Activity Set:

    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.

        Comments about Learning Resources Penguins on Ice™ Math Activity Set:

        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!
