My Project

Our students love hands on activities! Our first graders are learning about place value and we are in short supply with the resources needed to provide everyone with these hands on experiences.

Base ten blocks provide hands-on ways to learn place value, number concepts, operations, measurement, and much more!

They help students physically represent what they’re learning so they can develop a deeper understanding of the meaning of each concept. The starter set would be great for demonstrations and small group instruction with its interlocking capabilities. To make sure that there are enough for everyone we will need the classroom set. It will make it possible for students to work independently.
