This guide will show you how to use manipulatives in all different kinds of situations.It includes adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing for whole numbers. I am working on getting the binder up for fractions and decimals as well. This should help you give examples to your students on how to set up math manipulative problems in the correct way.
I use tiles, Popsicle sticks, base ten blocks, and other shapes to help students understand how to do these problems.
This is a great resource to really help students learn and understand how to use manipulatives.
