Christi Wyrrick needed to supply her Transitional Kindergarten class with math manipulative materials. Students now enjoy using bear shaped counters to sequence objects by size (“Goldilocks and the Three Bears”), create patterns using gem sets, and explore measurement with inchworm tools.
Ms. Wyrrick wrote: “It has been wonderful to have more hands-on math manipulatives for these little ones to use. My class has five different home languages represented and a majority of second language learners. The concrete materials are especially helpful for them in understanding math concepts.”
