Dienes Cubes/Blocks to study 4 operations

Dienes Blocks or cubes are a great tool for learning the four operations after the concept of place value is mastered. They can be used to revise the concept of place value too. However,during a workshop the focus of the session was to know how any hands-on tool must be combined with worksheets of pictures and problems for that ultimate connection of concrete to abstract in a young mind! 
Response of a teacher was, "Worksheet is what was missing in my classes."
