Re: Cheapest place to buy math manipulatives?
I have used house hold items in the past, both boys learned to add with dry cereal. We even have a good number of manipulatives but the book I have calls for specific items like a geoboard, geosolids, centimeter cubes, fraction circles, and a bucket scale and bear family counters for different lessons. I don't know that I can teach the lessons without the correct manipulatives to go along with them. I have many of the manipulatives already but these ones I do not. There are a lot of manipulatives which winds up adding up to a lot of money and a lot of space. I'm torn on buying them all and where to buy them.
