4) Snap Cubes
For the kinaesthetic learner Snap Cubes® (Set of 100) are brilliant as making the learner engage in their times tables. Use the different colours to group sets of numbers to show multiplication. This is a great “touchy” and “feely” way of learning times tables. Plus these snap cubes are so much fun!!! Worth every penny!
