Math can be a very difficult subject for a lot of young students, whether they are in a traditional class or in a home school environment. The difficulty probably arises because math is the first abstract thinking they are being asked to do. If you don’t somehow make the connection between the concrete and the abstract, your students can be lost for a long time. This is why it is important to consider the use of addition manipulatives as part of your teaching supplies. The use of manipulatives makes it easier to see what you are talking about when you use mathematical concepts.
The nice thing about addition manipulatives is that they provide a hands-on experience as well as the conceptual aspects of math that you are teaching at the same time. When you explain addition and then have the ability to demonstrate it with the manipulatives, your students can literally see what you are talking about. Because of this, addition manipulatives should really be an integral part of your classroom supplies. Further, you can always make the use of the manipulatives a game, and every child enjoys games.
When you introduce the use of manipulatives the children will want to do everything with them other than learning addition. But don’t worry, let them play with them for a while and soon it will be simple for you to introduce the math concepts easily. Once you do that, addition becomes a simple and enjoyable subject.
