Try out an interactive, math story mat flipchart for free.
1. Choose a skill you need to work on.
2. Print out and distribute the student workmat and have them choose their manipulative (dried beans, counters, unifix cubes, etc).
3. Explain the skill.
4. Then, work out the skill in using the math story mat as a background setting for a interactive story.
Drag "virtual manipulatives" onto the slide to illustrate essential math concepts: comparing, counting, adding and subtracting. There is a printable student workmat that can be used while the teacher is introducing, reviewing, practicing, or evaluating math story problems.
I had fun making it, and I am eager to see your comments below. I can always edit it for improvement.
