    Yet another question from me...has anyone tried the Tag Bags from Handwriting Without Tears? They are a math manipulative with accompanying lessons. There are little bags that have different types of closures (velcro, button, buckle, etc) and inside they place little tags with colors or numbers.

    I really like the Handwriting Without Tears materials that I have used so far. We use the wood pieces, CDs and letter cards. I do not use the workbooks. I also use the Word Time curriculum, which I absolutely LOVE. In only 10 minutes a day, we discuss new vocabulary words - and sometimes they really bring up interesting discussions, like the words respect or polite.

    Anyway, I guess I would like to try the Tag Bags - but they aren't cheap and it's hard to spend $100 on something you've never seen in person and I've never talked to any other users.

    Anyone know more about these?
