My Students

My students are eager to learn and try their best even when it is challenging. They love hands-on activities. Each day, they bring passion, joy, and excitement to our classroom.

Many of my students have not had hands-on experiences to help build their number sense, operations, and problem solving skills.

Concrete models are needed to help create a strong math foundation that will help them be successful now and in their future.

Being able to challenge and enrich their lives as people and learners is truly a blessing.

My Project

Math manipulatives are tools that give students hands-on experiences to support conceptual understanding of math concepts. Using unifix cubes allows students to conceptualize math problems and develop number sense. It is vital for our students to have concrete experiences with unifix cubes to support concrete, pictorial, abstract progression in math.

The unifix cubes I am requesting will help students understand concepts, build confidence in their abilities, and create adults who successfully use their math knowledge to be successful.

Unifix cubes will support students in learning addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and graphing. Unifix cubes are the most widely used math manipulative and can be used for just about any mathematical practice.

Using math manipulatives makes learning math more concrete for students. They provide scaffolding to interpret and solve math problems at all levels. Students in all grade levels will benefit from using unifix cubes to prove, justify, show, and explain their thinking. All students can experience success in reasoning and communicating math concepts through working with manipulatives.
