Ways to use these in early math:

• Math manipulatives, or counters, are any small objects that kids can count or move around to help them work out simple math problems.
• Hands on way to learn math such as counting, adding, subtracting, making patterns and comparing numbers.
• For example, you could take the addition problem 3+2=?  Have the students make a group of 3 red crayons and 2 green crayons.  Then push them together and count your total.
• They are also great for showing the relationships among numbers. If you had a row of 10 counters and a row of 5 counters you can easily see that 10 is bigger than 5.
• You can use these as a hands on way to teach basic story problems.  For example, if Susie had 7 less markers than Chad, who had 10, how many did Susie have?
• Patterning.  Use the counters to make simple patterns such as AB, ABC, ABBC etc.  You could also pattern between crayons and markers!
• Perfect for Using as a measurement tool since the crayons are 2".
