A Collection of Manipulatives to Teach Hands-on Math | www.joyinthehome.com
As a Charlotte Mason educator, I use manipulatives to teach hands-on math and my children have loved learning basic math this way. We start with addition and then work through subtraction and then multiplication, and even division.  As I'm preparing for my son's learning boxes, I wanted to be sure I had plenty of manipulatives for his hands-on math, considering it has been several years since I taught this age.

Things Around the House

There are some good things around the house (or most houses) that would work great manipulatives.

Good Things to Purchase

I love to have some store bought manipulatives because it brings excitement into a lesson when things are colorful.

Why not put a little fun in math and add manipulatives to your homeschooling routines?
