My students are fourteen Kindergarten through 3rd grade students in special education at a high poverty inner-city elementary school in Chicago. My school is 97.2% low income. Many of my students are either kinesthetic learners, visual/spatial learners or multisensory learners and use math manipulatives to gain a concrete sense of math concepts. Kinesthetic learners learn by moving and touching. Visual/spatial learners think in pictures and are creative and imaginative. Multisensory learners use more than one sense to learn. Manipulatives help all of these learning styles as a concrete representation of math concepts to help students gain a grasp of math.
