Guidecraft Fraction Cups & Board ~ Review & Giveaway!


Guidecraft has amazing math toys! Wooden toys that introduce math in a fun playful way are ideal in my boat!  We love the Fraction Action Board and Fraction Cups!


These have been an awesome tool to use for introducing concepts and vocabulary to Krash and Ladybug.  Ladybug is especially drawn to these, they are the perfect challenge for her.

I love seeing her try different combinations out and also perfecting her “try again” or “help please” skills!  This fraction board gives her more trouble and we have really worked on those 2 phrases a lot when working with it!IMG_6420


I love these math toys and know my kiddos will get years of play out of them!



You can purchase the Fraction Action Board and Fraction Cups on the Guidecraft site.  They also sell them on Amazon: Fraction Action Board and Fraction Cups

Carisa - this is an extremely cool looking material! What a great manipulative. This is a wonderful example of a material that teaches by being handled. Those Guidecraft folks are putting out some great stuff, it looks like!
