Future Math Stars Need Math Manipulatives

Help me give my students materials to help my students understand base ten and place value. Our school does not have a lot of materials to use, and the place value manipulatives and cubes will truly help them!

My Students

I am privileged and honored to serve a community of creative and ambitious scholars from Atlanta. Although they come from challenging backgrounds, they bring their curiosity and willingness to learn more with them each and every day. In my role as math specialist, I work with students who are in need of extra intervention to close their academic gap in number recognition, number sense, problem solving, math fluency, and critical math thinking. I also use literacy to bring math concepts to live and make them more relevant for their comprehension. My scholars love to participate in hands-on activities with manipulatives which definitely help my instruction come to life daily. Their love for learning pushes me to want to do more and to expose them to more so they can be more!

My Project

Because I work with students to fill in their learning gaps, the place math bingo library, value blocks, dominoes, magnetic base ten and unifix cubes will help to enhance my daily instruction in place value and number sense. These manipulatives will help students physically show their numbers, allowing them to discuss the value of each place and explain their reasoning, and eventually show them how to add and subtract numbers with and without regrouping.

The students truly enjoy working with hands on materials because they are able to make connections with the learning.

Concrete manipulatives help them build a firm foundation in number sense, which is critical as they continue their journey into decimals and fractions, as well as multiplication and division.
