Help me give my students manipulatives to instill the principles of math they are honing by feeling, seeing, and applying the mathematical concepts they are taught. The white boards help me check for individual understanding in all areas.
I teach in an elementary special education classroom with a variety of learning, sensory, language and health impairments. Some of my students are struggling with reading or writing while others find it difficult to grasp addition or division. School is not easy for them but they keep on trying.
In my classroom, we celebrate small victories every chance we get.
When a child can add or subtract, we celebrate. If they read a story by themselves, write a sentence, or count to ten: there’s a celebration. They are some of the most resilient and hard-working people I know. These students teach me something about life every day. Don't give up, keep trying, and hard things make you strong.
My students love to do math and reading even though it is difficult for them. We work hard in our class to understand concepts that have already been taught to them many times. They do much better holding and moving things to understand math. Together we learn about measurement, multiplication, and fractions. Because of this, my students understand more clearly how numbers and math work in their lives.

Some of these students stay with me for three years. The fraction tiles, math cubes, and boards will help them “touch” math. If you can feel it, move it, and see it, it becomes real, and they are inspired to do their best.
