A discussion on The Homeschool Lounge tonight reminded me of a very effective teaching tool I used when I previously homeschooled........File Folder Games.
Here are some of the links I provided:
http://www.positivelyautism.com/downloads_foldergames.html (not just for autism)
http://www.filefolderfun.com/ (not sure what they have as I didn't join, but its free so might be worth a look)
http://www.mormonchic.com/crafty/filefolders.asp (look in the right side bar and scroll down a bit for freebies)
Some are for younger kids, some are for older, and many will spark your creativity to make your own.
And if that wasn't enough, you can get some visual ideas here
Enjoy and be blessed
