Oak Meadow's Math Gnomes provide a whimsical way to help children conceptualize the four processes in mathematic equations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) through story and hands-on games. A small booklet of simple math stories, taken from Oak Meadow's first grade curriculum, are included with each set of gnomes. Hand crafted exclusively for Oak Meadow at the Q’ewar Project ( a social work initiative situated in the rural highlands of the Andes Mountains in Peru), these gnomes are made from 100% alpaca wool with natural dyes. Each gnome stands about 2 inches tall, and they come in a set of five. Please note: Colors may vary depending on availability of fabric at the time of production.
