I teach deaf and hard-of-hearing students, students with learning disabilities, and English Language Learners in a high-poverty, Title One school. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch everyday. They face many challenges in their lives, including learning the basics of reading, writing and math.
My students have a lot to overcome, but they are rising to the challenge.
Once my students realize they can learn, their learning takes off and the possibilities are endless! As a teacher, it is so rewarding to see students who once thought they can't, now realize they can, and it is my joy to guide them towards that realization.
These hands-on materials will help my fourth and fifth grade students understand fractions and decimals. We are in need of manipulatives that will help students visualize concepts of fractions, decimals and the relationship between the two.
Decimals and fractions are an abstract concept that students have a hard time learning.
The Place Value Flip Stand includes both whole digits and decimals to aid students in expanding their knowledge of numbers and number parts. Tools, such as the Decimals Place value Cards and the Hands-on Decimal Tiles, will help students conceptualize these abstract concepts so they can build an understanding of numbers between zero and one. The Building Fractions, Decimals and Percents Magnetic Board will help students see the relationship between these three number representations. All of these math manipulatives are all highly visual and will bring math alive by making the abstract concrete.
