    Comments about Measuring Motors Car Set:

    If I could recommend only one product, this is it! The set has so much to offer, from imaginative play with whimsical rubber penguins (you get 100!) to sorting them by color, to adding, subtracting, and acting out word problems. This set gives kids a tool to help understand abstract math in a very tangible way. Even the introduction of fractions can be done by placing 3 red penguins and 1 blue penguin to represent 3/4. The ice bars can be used separately, giving each child a way to count to 10, or they can be connected linearly to make a number line or in a grid to make a 100 board to help learn how to skip count, or count by 5s or 10s.

    The penguins are tall and friction fit onto the ice bars, providing stability in play - great for kids who have special needs. And using the ice bars, penguins can be placed on every other peg to give kids more room for their hands to place the penguins. The opportunities really are limitless.

    This set is well worth taking a good look at. It comes highly, highly recommended!

    Comments about Measuring Motors Car Set:

    I teach first grade. I have ten of these sets. You can use them for so many different common core math standards. I use the penguins to teach missing addend, using the game How many penguins in the cave? I use them to teach adding using three addends by adding three different color groups of penguins as well as story problems. Great for fact penquin families, too. The best part is, by taking a second set, and dividing it up among five other sets, I can actually have students manipulate up to 120. Link 12 ice bars together, and students can actually visualize 120. Perfect for common core for first grade. There are so many other games and standards I teach with it. Highly recommend this product.

    Comments about Measuring Motors Car Set:

    What I really love about this set is that it's great for younger children, like my son, but it will really grow with him, allowing for learning more about standard measurement. For now, at three, he is learning colors, sorting, patterns and basic measurement concepts. As with all of our many Learning Resources sets, the quality and durability of the cars and tracks are great. I know this set will be a favorite for a long time to come! * I received a sample of this product to facilitate my honest and candid review.

Most all kids love cars and this cute set is a fabulous way to work on math skills interactively. There are PLENTY of cars in the set. Our kindergarten teacher was just thrilled to have this for her classroom.

          Comments about Measuring Motors Car Set:

          The Measuring Motors teaching set has really improved my seven-year-old's understanding of measurements and how they relate to each other. Sometimes a child can have a difficult time visualizing how measurements relate to each other. Is an inch larger or smaller than a yard? A foot? And while they may know the right answer, being able to visualize these measurements in real life can help them not only retain the information, but understand why. The Measuring Motors set comes complete with 4 interlocking road track pieces, and 88 durable, chunky plastic cars in varying sizes and colors. I really love how the track pieces are marked in 1" increments showing how each car is a certain number of inches. The cars sizes are in 1, 2, and 3 inch increments. Teaching measurements, comparisons, and number stories is easier than ever with Measuring Motors!

          This set can also be used for sorting, color practice, and teaching patterns. The bright colors and chunky pieces makes it fun and easy to use for little hands. My three-year-old enjoys playing with Measuring Motors like any car/track set and it gives me a chance to work on his colors and patterns. This set is so versatile and great for a variety of ages and concepts!

          *I received this product free of charge for the purpose of my review.*

          Turns Math Into a Roadway Adventure

          By Melissa ~ Mommy Living the Life of Riley

          from Houston, TX

          Comments about Measuring Motors Car Set:

          There are a ton of activities to get your child's motor revving, but since Riley doesn't quite meet the recommended age of 4 to 8 years old, I decided to let her explore on her own, with a little occasional facilitation from me. I was really impressed at how much she enjoyed lining these colorful cars up along the track! It also didn't take her long to discover that some of these cars were shorter than others, but if you combined them just right, the lengths would match.

          Although it's not mentioned on their site, I think this toy is a wonderful tool for teaching fractions to children as well. For instance, when Riley noticed that three of the small cars equaled the length of one of the large cars, I explained that the short car was 1/3 the size of the large one. It helped so much having a great visual there to teach the difficult concept of fractions...especially to a 3-year-old, but I honestly think Riley understood. I'm also trying to show her the beginnings of measuring something by lining up the front of the object with the first yellow tick mark and counting the spaces between tick marks to get a standard measurement.

          The best part is, Riley is actually having a blast learning her new math skills with the Measuring Motors set. There's just something about incorporating a great deal of brightly-colored plastic cars into the mix that makes anything more fun to learn! If you have a preschooler that could benefit from a little guided math practice, then by all means test drive the new Measuring Motors Math Activity Set from Learning Resources!

          My Little Boy Loves This

          By Dragonfly Sweetnest

          from South Webster, OH

          Comments about Measuring Motors Car Set:

          My little boy went absolutely nuts when he saw this on the kitchen table as he got home from school. So of course, with all of the excitement, I had to open it. I was really shocked with all of the cars. There are so many and with four different bold colors and three sizes they are visually appealing to adults, and stimulating to children. The cars are very durable, you don't have to worry about them getting broken in anyway. There are also 4 sections of road that can be put together to run the cars on.

          I love that these cars can be used to teach your little one how to sort by colors or by size. Also you can teach them how to do a pattern like blue, yellow, red, blue, yellow, red and so on. You can also use the cars to do a little adding and subtracting, as well as measurements. I am really surprised that I was able to keep my little boys attention for so long. He is really hyper so having something that really works towards his interest and he learns makes me one happy mom.

          These sets were what we used to look forward to using in grade school, and this is brought to you by the same company that supplied the schools all those years ago, and continues to do so today. High quality educational fun, with a kick of nostalgia thrown in, you gotta love that.

          Cartridge Comparison Guide
          • Cartridge Types
          • Ink & Toner Basics
          • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
          Cartridge Type
          Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
          Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
          Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
          Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
          What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
          Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
          Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
          Material Liquid ink Dry powder
          How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
          Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
          Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
          Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
          Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
