Picture this scene…a seven-year-old lad sitting in front of his gran’s fireplace. Here, he engrosses himself with 52 little pieces of card each emblazoned with a different pattern on each. A simple game of Solitaire would keep the young lad busy for hours and sparked his enjoyment of logic puzzles but also made him a huge fan of playing cards. So, when that seven-year-old became the teacher I am today, there is no question of what would become my manipulative of choice.
