Reviews - What do our customers think?
I am an Early Childhood major teaching in a Head Start program. I have heard of these "more than" books from other teachers. One day I went to my local bookstore and browsed through several teacher resources. This book was so impressive I thought about paying bookstore prices! Next school year, I want to make available to my parents weekend activities in a bag(with a copy of the instructions) paper, crayons and a book that relates to the game or activity. With that said, I cannot tell you how delighted I am with this resource! The materials are not expensive - maybe ALREADY in your POSSESSION. I ordered a "used" copy OF THE BOOK to take back and forth with me to school. Later in the year I will order another "used" copy for home. Please, decide for yourself if this book would help you help your students make beginning math concepts as familiar as the name of the most popular toy available today.
Thanks for reading my review,
Concrete and amazing  Dec 5, 2006
I was amazed when I read this book. Many people are afraid of math, and this book shows teachers (and/or parents)how to turn learning math into simple, repetitive teaching games for the children. You can use the same games for a variety of ages, and they are CHEAP to make (for low budget teachers). I got this book from the library, but now have to buy it. I couldn't believe how ingenious yet simple the games are. It also shows the teacher how to incorporate these games with other subjects or areas of the classroom with integrated curriculum activities for each game. A must-have for preschool or kindergarten children.
Yes! Progressive Education!  Nov 15, 2006
This book is exceptional in providing Math manipulative activities to the reader. You can use household items to make many of the activities. The lessons are hands-on NOT paper handouts that you see so often in public school. The children can experience these activities which is a far better way to learn than memorizing symbols on paper. Concrete experiences!!!!! Yes!!!!
Excellent book for dedicated teachers  Aug 16, 2005
It is unfortunate that just anyone can write a review regardless of how little they may know about the subject. I hope those reading reviews take them with a grain of salt. Keep in mind you do not know anything about the person writing the review. The person who wrote the negative review probably never read the book and clearly does not understand the meaning of whole math. Whole math involves direct teaching, but also helps children use mathematical concepts and relationships in the context of real life situations. The activities and experiences in this book are developmentally appropriate. Teachers provide children with meaningful math experiences rather than regurgitating answers onto ditto sheets. It is not a cookie cutter curriculum. It is for teachers interested in children understanding math rather than imitating teachers. There are volumes of research to support how well this works. Anyone with an early childhood education background would understand this. Also, hopefully any effective teacher uses a variety of teaching techniques and plans based on the interests and ability levels of children in the class. This is an excellent book to include when developing your math curriculum for preschool and kindergarten.
Whole language a failure - whole math is no better  Jan 23, 2003
The concept of whole language when implemented in California in the 80s was a total debacle and I see that there are still books out there promoting the "whole" concept, only this time it is in math. Use this book only in addition to tried and proven ways of teaching math.
