I am blessed to teach Kindergarten in Greer, South Carolina. In my classroom I want to provide my students with many opportunities for hands-on learning. One of the hardest concepts for students to learn is simply counting objects. Some students can count up to 20, but they have no concept of the number itself. They cannot visualize that the number twenty actually represents twenty objects. I am requesting a set of unifix cubes to help solve this problem. If students have something concrete they can count, they stand a better chance of grasping the concept. How can students be expected to add and subtract if they do not realize what the number represents? I would like to have a set of 600 unifix cubes in a variety of colors. Students can count as they build towers, they can make two and three color patterns and they can use the counters to measure things around the room. This will also increase the ability to recognize patterns, problem solve and sort cubes. These manipulatives will be used in the math center and during small and large group activities. My current class and my classes for years to come will use these supplies each week. What a fun way to learn a valuable skill! We hope you will help us fix our counting problem with unifix cubes. We would greatly appreciate your support.
