Using Manipulatives to
Model Math Concepts K-5

Presented by Marilyn Zecher

Manipulatives can be time consuming and messy, but research suggests their use is essential for modeling math concepts for all types of learners.  Most math curricula endorse the use of manipulatives for instructional use in addressing the Common Core Standards and meeting the needs of diverse student populations using a Universal Design for Learning approach. However, educators consistently express a desire for guided practice in the use of manipulatives in the classroom and within individual lessons.

This workshop is designed to give teachers, tutors and parents additional hands-on practice in the use of manipulatives and associated language in modeling crucial concepts in the foundations of mathematics K-5.  Concepts addressed include:

  • Basic numeracy
  • Place value
  • Basic operations, with and without regrouping
  • Multiplication/division
  • Fractions

Participants are encouraged to bring their own place value/base ten blocks.  Other manipulatives and lunch will be provided.
