I can’t tell you how many times I have failed to let my kids PLAY with our math and literacy manipulatives and materials prior to using them for instruction and practice. For many years, I told my students what they can and can not use our math and literacy manipulatives and materials for. Even after long talks, I still had students who would play with these tools. I finally thought, can I blame them? Now, I let my kids PLAY while I establish expectations. We spend the first week of school exploring, playing, and building!
