review

Judy Hartnett

This title contains a series of activities where students work with hands on materials to answer questions, play games and generally reinforce number and operation concepts. Each activity is presented so it can be used in a variety of ways with students working together, playing a game to be the winner or working individually. Many of the activities provide more than one of these presentations making the activities more flexible and more than doubling the amount of activities possible from ideas the students will learn quickly and enjoy. Black-line masters for games are provided and other resources would be the type of materials readily available in schools making this book a resource that an early years teacher could pick up and use straight away.
