Touch Math is a tactile way of learning how to solve math problems. I have designed these templates for use as a workboard/manipulatives to help students solve math problems on worksheets, homework, in small groups, math centers or even on tests.
These colored templates are designed to reinforce the math operation being performed: Yellow added to blue equals green, so when we see yellow and blue above the line we recognize we should add - count on. Green is made up of yellow and blue, so when we see green first we recognize we should subtract - count back. Black and white templates are also included as some of your students might not need the additional color reinforcement.
