Teaching with Manipulatives
Manipulatives are things that students can manipulate during the learning process. Learning fractions with dominos is an example. The biggest problem teachers face is the cost of good manipulatives. Publishers charge way to much for simple games and teacher often have too little time to make their own. That is why I have designed this game that any parent or teacher can save and print. I have also posted a Subtraction Game in another hub. In both cases the games are free to anyone who wishes to use them so long as they do not sell them. Instructions on how to save the pictures are on the left.
What You Need:
Aside from the pictures below. You will need some manipulatives. The good news is these are cheap and easy to find. I used cardboard squares cut from an old box. But you could use rocks, magnets, even Skittles.
