My kindergarteners are on their way to becoming math experts! Many mornings we start the day working on word problems. We have some manipulatives to help us visualize what it is we are working on, but we sure could use some other things to help us see "Nat's five cows," and "Bob's ten frogs." We are in need of math manipulatives. Besides assisting us in visualizing word problems, we will also be able to use the manipulatives to make patterns, in graphing, sorting, counting, making nonstandard measurements, and in estimating. Let's not stop there, we have a drama center where students act out books they read. The manipulatives will be put to great use in their plays. Thank you for taking a look at this proposal. I hope you are willing to help us in figuring out math!
