Hooray! This project is fully funded
A math manipulative center has all the manipulatives for hands-on exploration of math concepts. This kit includes everything from sorting and patterns to probability and fractions. There is also an easy storage center which gives kids super easy access to the materials they need. With these manipulatives the children will be able to add, subtract and count using their own chips or blocks.
Because there is a lack of manipulatives the children take turns coming up to the front of the room to use the manipulatives as an example. When the children work independently they do not have access to manipulatives. With these manipulatives, each child will be able to use counters, cubes and chips. Math can be very confusing for young children, and these tools help the children visualize what is going on, and they are able to see and understand their answer rather than memorize how to solve a problem.
