I teach K-2 special education in a public school. My littles are students whom have learning disabilities and need materials presented in multiple ways, multiple times, from multiple people because it takes each of them that much longer to acquire skills. I have found that the more manipulatives and center activities we use, the more motivated they are to learn. Because motivation is a key indicator to success, I have found my students' skill levels increase significantly since using more manipulatives and math and literacy centers in my teaching. I have tried printing the center packs in black and white and then on colored paper, but truly the kiddos were not as excited as when the activities were in bright colors.
