In my accelerated learning math classes, I teach 40 students in grades 4-6. I am always looking for new methods and resources to assist my students to grasp mathematical concepts or fill any gaps.
The hands-on approach is an engaging way for students to make connections and grasp math content.
The manipulatives will allow my diverse learners to get their hands on math as well as ee the math concepts. These lower middle class, gifted education students are not often the focus of school budget discussions and decisions, but resources such as these will nevertheless enrich every aspect of the students' experiences in my classroom.
Students today are hands-on learners. As teachers, we need to adapt to our students. Teaching math is important and these are fundamental skills my students will take with them for the rest of their lives. Engaging manipulatives will help my students make connections and grasp the content in different ways.
Math can be boring, so let's spice it up with some manipulatives!
Engaged and happy learners are better learners. I have seen what manipulatives like dice, tiles, and spinners can do for my students, it allows them to understand the content in a different way. Not all learners are the same and we should try to deliver math in multiple ways.
With these manipulatives I know I can better teach my students. With your help, we can make math fun and memorable experience for my students.
