Need a few extra fingers to count with? These hand-sized books make perfect math manipulatives!
Each page is printed in fleshtone colors with foldable fingers to use as a math manipulative. Use the pages to practice numbering, writing out equations or for math journaling. Each book has a card stock front and back cover along with 10 pages and measures 4 x 4½ (10 x 11.5 cm). Fold down the fingers just like you would curl in your own fingers to represent numbers! For example, if you want to show the number 2 with your hand book, fold down the thumb, ring and pinkie fingers on one hand. You can also fold down all but the pointer fingers on two pages.
Make math facts concrete by folding down fingers and writing the math facts on the palms!
These books are also great for early learners! There are a lot of different ways to write out 4, so match the fingers with the words and symbols!
Make a unique “All About Me” book with a numeracy theme! Start with a self portrait, and fill each page with numbered favorites.
