About the Presentation:

Teaching with Math Manipulatives, K-2

How do you manipulate all the manipulatives that come with a math program? Do you need to brush up or learn for the first time how to use those manipulatives? Do you need a refresher course?

Bring your manipulatives with you, and we will look at ways to bridge the gap from concrete to abstract


As a result of attending, participants will:

  • Understand the importance of using math manipulatives for all learners .

  • Have a plan for selecting and introducing manipulatives to address instructional shifts of the Common Core Math Practices.

  • Describe assessments that can be used to show effectiveness of manipulatives in demonstrating key math concepts.

  • Implement new strategies using manipulatives to bridge gaps from concrete to abstract.
