My students need 7 manipulative games to concretely establish number sense.
Help young children develop strong number sense! I teach early childhood special education in a low income area with 12 special needs kindergarten students ranging yearly from autistic to cognitively impaired to students with ADHD.
My students love learning with manipulatives. Manipulatives allow students to learn information concretely. Many students, especially special needs students, need concrete learning experiences to master skills. More and more, research suggests that using manipulatives in mathematics is critical to developing good mathematical reasoning. Our classroom lacks many of the manipulatives that students could use in small group or individual work centers to develop their number sense.
Number sense is critical to success in math. In early childhood, number sense is a child’s intuitive ability to understand that a number represents a quantity of that many objects. This is when children learn that a print 5 represents a group of 5 objects. Number sense in kindergarten is developed through counting, one to one correspondence (touching objects one at a time and counting them), counting groups of objects (by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s), and by creating groups of objects for a given number. These manipulatives will give students the materials necessary to practice number skills in learning centers both individually and in small groups.
Your help will allow my students to practice learning through hands on math activities that improve learning for many students, in particular students with special needs. It is especially important for special needs students to be able to experience learning through a variety of mediums to allow them every possible opportunity to learn the skills and information necessary to be successful in school.
