Touch Math

My students need manipulatives to help build on concrete math concepts.

My Students

Have you ever tried to teach math with just a pencil and a piece of paper? It rarely works. "Tell me and I forgot, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn" said Benjamin Franklin. Kids need to be involved in their learning using hands-on items.

My students are third graders in Texas.

They have good parental support, but need to be able to learn concrete concepts at school. Using manipulates and appropriate math tools is vital for them to take the ideas home to show their families. They are very interested in learning new skills, but like taking the learning into their own hands!

My Project

My students thrive on learning in independent work stations. They want to practice and explore using more activities. The math book is rarely opened in my classroom, instead we "play" with math tools that captivate learning. Their love for learning is enhanced when they have the opportunity to get involved with the concepts. The math activity stations will allow students to master place value, operations, fractions and more with skill-building activity stations that let them work at their own pace! Each station features 4 engaging activities with 4 sets of hands-on materials for each activity. The students can work independently to find the area of a house, solve time and money riddles, sort and match fractions, and more! The instant math activities will make challenging concepts incredibly accessible to students, €Â"from fractions and geometry to algebraic thinking! There are 8 different games that each target a specific skill, so students get plenty of focused practice.

Teaching kids a love for learning and achieving their personal best is important to me.

I want kids to know that learning doesn't have to be boring. With the use of educational manipulatives that support the content, the students become highly engaged and in turn, love to learn.
