I love learning resources counters because the shapes are simple and allow for children's imagination to fill in the rest. For math they are great to sort and count. The kids love them!

    Comments about In The Garden Critter Counters:

    The Learning Resources In the Garden Critter Counters™ have been wonderful addition to our homeschooling manipulative's collection. My son age 3 and my daughter age 6 have been enjoying using these counters during school and play time. These counters are great to use as an aid for teaching about colors, sequencing, patterns building, skip counting, and much more! The set is cute, colorful, and quite kid appealing. The reason I like these counters so much is that they can be used in so many different ways especially for early math skills for children over a span of ages and grade levels.

    This set of manipulative's has 72 pieces and comes with six different bugs and in six different colors. The colors are orange, blue, green, purple, yellow, and red. The critters include a dragonfly, bee, snail, spider, grasshopper, and a caterpillar. There are two of every color critter. I found these counters very durable and easy to wash after use. There's no weird smell from the material these are made from. If preferred, these can be easily stored in the container they came in. There's an included activity guide for suggestions in how you could use the counters. You can also find the guide on the Learning Resources website.

    My son really likes using these counters. He's been able to work on sorting and patterns along side of me. I've also given him the opportunity to free play with the counters and he's taken all the little critters on quite the adventures inside the house and outside in our yard. Since he knows about bumble bees, he was taking the bees around to the dandelions in yard and pretending they were pollinating them. His personal favorite critter from the set is the grasshopper. We've done a little bit of nature study, finding books from the library and searching around on the Internet to learn more about each of the critters. So you can use these for early science study too!

    Overall, this set is of exceptional quality, a hit with the kids, and can be used in so many different ways. Definitely a winner in our household. Highest of recommendations!

    These In the Garden Critters are absolutely adorable! They are colorful and very well made! My 4 year old uses them for counting, patterns and simple addition. I am also using them with my 1st grader to help teach fractions. The Garden Critters make our math time so much more fun and meaningful. This is a resource that I would highly recommend!

      he All About Me 2 in 1 Mirrors come in a set of 6 so you can use them in your home or the classroom. I like that we can keep some in the car, at home and in the diaper bag for on the go. They are unbreakable and made without glass so parents can rest easy when these are manhandled by their little ones. Mason took off with one of these mirrors and was enamored by his own good looks. He likes to kiss himself as well as make funny faces. The size (6" x 4") is perfect for his hands. Although these are recommended for children 2+ years of age, Mason can still enjoy without understanding the difference of the two sides of the mirror.
      Mackenzie, on the other hand, was aware of the two different faces staring back at her. One side is a normal mirror in which Kenzie can practice her different expressions for photos. The other is similar to the mirrors in a fun house which distorts the face a bit to bring out loads of giggles and silliness. It's nice to use these 2-sided mirrors as a learning tool to teach body awareness and emotions. These are great to grab when you are out shopping and your tot is bored - a self-entertainment tool.

          The All About Me 2-in-1 Mirrors are a fun addition to any home or classroom. You can create many uses, games, and activities with these. I like having the kids practice different emotions and watching themselves as we go through them. Also a fun way to do a self portrait.

          These mirrors are well made and should last a long time! We love them!

          *I received a sample in exchange for my honest opinions.

            Comments about In The Garden Critter Counters:

            My son knows exactly how cute he is, but that doesn't stop him from wanting to get a glimpse of that cute little face of his whenever he has the chance. When Learning Resources sent him the All About Me 2 in 1 mirrors, I knew he would be more than thrilled to play with these.

            I like that my son can entertain himself safely while learning more about his sweet little face with these educational mirrors. One side is a regular mirror which is pretty fun for little kids on its own, but flip it over and you have a fun mirror that slightly distorts the reflection and is sure to bring on a few giggles.

            These mirrors are great for learning body awareness, for learning emotions and as a speech tool. They are durable unbreakable, non glass mirrors and are easy for small hands to hold on the side grasps. The set comes with 6 mirrors making this a great tool for preschool or kindergarten classrooms or for home school use. They are also ideal for using with toddlers, such as my son.

            With the All About Me 2 in 1 mirrors, you can share your mirrors with friends and no fighting as there is plenty of fun to share. These are more than toy mirrors for admiring faces, they are tools for learning through play.

            Overall we are very impressed with this mirror set from Learning Resources. My husband works in special education and we sent a few mirrors to his classroom, he said it is a good tool for teaching children about making appropriate facial expressions and to help them with speech.

            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.
