Roylco Counting Hands Classroom Kit Review

DSC_0041

I just love button manipulatives so I was thrilled when Roylco sent us their Counting Hands Classroom Kit to review! I love it because it comes with SO many pieces! It has 144 hand buttons in 6 different shapes and also includes dry erase activity cards and an activity guide. The hand buttons demonstrate numbers 0-5 which really allows you quite a variety of activities to do.

I love the activity sheets because they are laminated which makes them last longer and are reusable for dry erase activities. Not to mention that you can come up with your own activity sheets, laminate them, and store them in your classroom kit. The possibilities are really endless. You can even use the hands button for completely separate activities from the kids and grouping activities or sequencing.

For example – “Which counting hands are alike?” You can ask the students to separate them by color or by number of fingers showing! AND if you look closely at the hand buttons you’ll see that in the palm of the hand are holes punched out – this represents the numbers of fingers that are represented on the button.

Using a Venn Diagram is another great variety that you can choose by colors of the hand buttons or numbers indicated on the fingers. This is a great set and comes with plenty of buttons so even if the students lose some you have plenty to spare! This set has great versatility that can be used across a wide range of ages and levels. You are really only limited by your creativity here. You can use the buttons for subtraction, addition, graphing and more! Plus create your own worksheets to add to the set!
