I’ve read that you should allow children to play with their math manipulatives, as that will help them to become familiar with them and thus more willing to use them to figure out their math problems.

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
