I use Singapore, but didn't start until 1B & 2A. We use linking cubes for lots of stuff-- adding, subtracting, place value, counting, grouping, etc. If you have a bunch of legoes, they would work instead. The clock, actually I'd just get a few of the little plastic student clocks or even make your own with a brass fastener. http://www.discountschoolsupply.com/...ocks/clock/The scale is really fun and my boys like to weigh stuff all the time. If you want to pay shipping, I have an extra you can have.I would print out and laminate a 100 number chart because we do use that a lot. http://www.homeschoolingonashoestrin...Chart-1.pdfYou can use anything for counters-- beans, pennies, buttons, legoes, linking cubes. Same thing with the weights.Maybe add a ruler, preferably one that ONLY had inches so it's easy to read. Found these to print out. http://www.vendian.org/mncharity/dir3/paper_rulers/That should be enough for that level. Have fun!
