What educators are saying

We love using these in our classroom. We use open-ended materials and manipulatives, and sometimes I put the pages in plastic sleeves with dry erase markers to trace to work on pre-writing skills.
This resource is a constant in my classroom centers. The fun comes from the various manipulatives I place with the mats - jewels, rocks, seasonal erasers, pom poms, etc. This was a great purchase.
