MissKristen's curator insight, October 21, 2013 12:39 AM

Based on my observation and student teaching experience, I have seen how manipulatives are really helpful and effective for younger grade levels because manipulatives help the students interpret the abstract concept into something conrete or tangible. I also agree with what they mentioned in this video about manipulatives creating an opportunity for diverse students to collaborate more, and be more active or engaged. I agree to the video and have seen also how manipulatives help ELL students a lot in terms of comprehension of the problem to be solved.  

 

I remember my mentor mentioning about how the common core wants students to utilize different manipulatives during their learning experiences. In connection to that, I like how this video discussed about manipulatives and its connection to Piaget's principle of concrete level for younger years.

 

Watching this video, I was ble to reflect on the things we have been doing in class for Math using manipulatives. I really like how the students also use manipulatives to justify their answers on a math problem. I guess they just have to get used to utilizing the different manipulatives when engaging with problem solving.

 

This is definitely a very informational and helpful video! Makes me think more of how I can incorporate manipulatives in my students' learning experiences.
