Fishin' for Addition Review by Joy Niceley

Fishin' for Addition is a fun and creative way to teach your children their addition facts in four weeks! The kit includes a teacher book, a student workbook, and cool manipulatives for each week.

Some of the manipulatives included are toy cars, bubbles, tops, spiders, and fish. This program uses a multi-sensory approach and was made for Special Education students, but it can be used for any child. My daughter and I loved the doodler rhymes that are in each lesson. Each day we reviewed all the doodler rhymes that we had learned from the previous lessons, learned a new rhyme for the day, and then filled out the workbook page.

Addition is not the only kit she has. There is also subtraction, multiplication, and division! They are a bit pricey at around $130 for each four-week kit. If I were not on a tight budget, I would get them all.
