As a new math teacher putting a new twist on an existing program, this website provided by the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives will be a huge asset to my classroom. This FREE website contains manipulatives needed to teach math to levels Kindergarten through 12th Grade. Since I am limited in supplies and funds, I will be able to use this resource to demonstrate many math concepts to my students.
I played a little on it during the presentation and learned this can be used in a whole group setting or as a center to reinforce skills to an individual or a small group. I liked the base block addition activity because the students can visual the numbers and watch the place value changes during the addition process. I have already placed this website in my Delicious account and will be exploring it in my classroom.
