What are Manipulatives and why are we giving them away?!
We are lucky enough to be hosting a give away sponsored by Mother Goose Time!
They are physical objects used to teach various concepts of mathematics in a hands-on and tactile manner. They bring abstract concepts to a physical form and allow children to connect with and understand the concept.
