Math Manipulatives Magic!

My students need manipulatives that will provide concrete understanding of essential math concepts with the new common core curriculum.

My Students

With the adoption of the new common core curriculum in math, my students need many specific math materials to manipulate and use in order to gain a concrete understanding of essential math concepts. Unfortunately, we are lacking many of these materials.

My students reside in the beautiful state of Utah and attend a k-6 elementary school where quality learning is emphasized.

We have a diverse population with many learning styles and needs. Although we make efficient and maximum use of the funds we receive, we find ourselves lacking many essential materials necessary for a quality education.

My Project

We are in desperate need of math manipulatives that will reinforce key math concepts like Nasco's Place Value to Millions/Decimal Tabletop Student Flip Charts, Two-Color Counters, Place Value Disks, and Cuisenaire Plastic Rods. I want my students to have experiences in math that will motivate them and give them the best opportunity to become proficient. Allowing them hands-on experiences with materials will help them better grasp important concepts. Such activities are also fun and exciting and students develop a more positive attitude toward mathematics.

These math manipulatives can be used for many years and will positively impact hundreds of students as they experience our math program.

I am looking forward to the excitement and eagerness my students will exhibit as they engage in activities with these materials.
