    Just out of curiosity what book is in the picture with the cuisinaire rods. It looks fun!

    The book is the Miquon orange book. You can buy the Miquon books from Christian Book Distributor or Rainbow Resources and Curclick sells a black and white PDF downloadable version.

    I agree with you that those are good and beautiful materials. Where did you get the Golden Bead Materials (and how much are they)?

    They were mostly from Kid Advance and some (I think the golden ten bars) were from another supplier but I won't say since I don't recommend them at all. I always get good customer service from Kid Advance and their prices are reasonable. The quality is fine for me, though some prefer the higher end materials.

    I am a big fan of your #1 and #2! Rosie is AWESOME! On of the downsides to our recent move is that internet is painfully slow which has made it harder to enjoy her videos. :(

    Love your Cuisenaire Rods! Are they made of wood? Where can I get them? I can see some at Learning Resources but can't decide what to get. Other varieties include connecting rods.

    @Jae – I recommend the wood as you can stack them into walls of whatever number bond you are working on. Ours are plastic, but I do have a very small, small set of wooden ones and we actually prefer them, but I refuse to shell out more money, so for us, plastic will have to do! I do not recommend the connecting rods if you are planning to use education unboxed activities to go with them. The idea behind the true cuisenaire rods is to learn to associate a color with a value and the notched quality of the connecting rods deters from that. The beauty of the cuisenaire rods is that you can use any rod to represent the number one once you are working with fractions.

    Hi! Thank you so much for your response. It helped a lot in planning what to buy as you know it's not easy to spend too much on something these days especially if it's not worthit. Speaking of which, I am purchasing my first ever montessori materials, can you make a post on the"must haves"? My son is 5 and a new one is coming so I was thinking that it's worthit anyway. I plan to get decanomial beads, knobless cylinders, questions and sums box (difference as well) and moveable letters (2 sets). Would you recommend them? How about puzzle maps? Thank you!

    I love the Hundred Board. I still have our first laminated 100′s chart.

    I think I am in love with that Hundred Board! I want one. I’m going to have to look into that for Supergirl. Thanks for linking up to my Favorite Anything link up.
