What are manipulatives

Practice number recognition along with addition and subtraction this week. Using manipulatives is a great way to practice numbers and math problems. Manipulatives can be anything you have on hand- pasta, beans, cotton balls, etc. Anything small enough for your child to safely handle is great! For example, give your child a deck of cards and ask them to put the red numbers in order from smallest to largest and the black numbers from biggest to smallest.
