    One item that I recently purchased and frequently use is a set of large magnetic coins. We use them to add a penny/day for our "days of school" count. Also, when we did our money units it was easy for the kids to see them from all corners of the room (overhead coins are sometimes blurry)

    Also, keep it simple. My very favorite math manipulatives are regular decks of playing cards. I have dozens of easy, motivating card games that reinforce basic math skills. And the best part is that the kids can go home and play these same games with their own decks of cards and their own families.
