Do you use her work?
Do you use it as a center, early finisher or homework assignment?
Did you buy the number manipulatives?
I was thinking of using them with my tutor kids as 15 minute fun and I was going to laminate little squares rather than buy them.

What do you think?

Do you use her work?
Every day. We have a tile teaser each morning and I have all of her books, so when we need a sponge activity out come the tiles. I also use her ideas in my lessons.

Do you use it as a center, early finisher or homework assignment?
Tile teasers are a warm-up. My kids keep track of how many solutions they can find and we track the number of days they have been able to solve the problems. We call the times they don't get a solution stumpers. We have been 23 days now without a stumper and they found 96 different solutions to today's problem.

Did you buy the number manipulatives?
No, I just cut 10 construction paper squares for each student. They wrote on the digits and the tiles are stored in an envelope in their math project folders. I might have to replace some tiles once a year. I've never laminated them.

Do you use her work? Yes, at least once a week.
Do you use it as a center, early finisher or homework assignment? I use some as warm ups. I have the sheet that you fill in the missing numbers with a # tile in a center.
Did you buy the number manipulatives? No, I made them with poster board. I've had them for years.

number tiles

I made number tiles by cutting foam craft sheets on the paper cutter into 2X 2" squares. Then writing the numerals on with sharpie marker. They last for years.

I use her work. I have used her booklets for hundreds and I have used lots of her math tiles. I have not been using it as much this year due to trying to fit lots of stuff in for the two grades. But usually I use them as work when done, actually lessons (the booklets) and games.

I use her tiles all the time. At the start of math class we do one or two of her starter activities. I use her boards in a center. I, too, made math tiles by cutting out 1"x 1" squares from foam sheets I bought at the Dollar Tree.

Foam tiles

I've used her tiling activities for 6 to 7 years with my first graders. I use it during the last quarter of the school year as a way to challenge students. They love the activities once they begin to remember the math terminology. I made my tiles out of sheets of colored foam cut into 1 inch squares. I wrote the numbers on the foam squares with a black Sharpie. They've held up very well.
