Manipulatives and Manipulative Play Builds Skills Across the Curriculum

Ideal for kinesthetic learners of all ages, manipulative play makes learning fun and meaningful. Infants and young children explore with their hands to learn the properties of objects. Soon they begin to use multiple strategies to build, construct or create new things with manipulative toys. It's important to have a varied collection of manipulatives and just as important to have a sufficient quantity of each type so that two or more children can enjoy playing together. Becker's offers sets of manipulatives for all age groups and ability levels . See our Becker's Manipulative Library Sets.
