My name is Jennifer and I’m a book and manipulatives addict! I admit it!Moving back to the mainland and having access to a dollar store again is going to save me so much money in manipulatives!!
But truth is, hands on curriculums require a lot of them; and the same old, same old get boring! So I am always looking for new manipulatives to add to our homeschooling!
I keep a running wish list on Amazon! Melissa and Doug items and Safari Toobs are frequent manipulatives I buy. Do-a-dot markers, magnets, counters, pattern blocks, wooden blocks, games, puzzles, etc… I can almost always find what I’m looking for and at a reasonable price on Amazon.
Books are another thing I can’t live without! I love books, and though the library is a great resource, I LOVE to own books! We have several books shelves FULL of books, and they just keep growing and growing! Digital reading devices has helped cut back a tad on our books collection, BUT nothing replaces a good old, in your hands, book!
We use very literature and manipulative heavy curriculums. If the curriculum doesn’t call for those things (or not enough of them), I supplement.
Living in Hawaii there are very few places that ship here without a ridiculous shipping fee, except Amazon!
Amazon feeds my addictions. I wanted to share with my readers my love of Amazon…and giveaway $10 in gift cards, which I won with Swagbucks!
Enter below and good luck!
