This week, in Numeracy, we continued to focus on groupings within 5 and with 5. We used a variety of manipulatives including unifix cubes. When children touch and move manipulatives or real objects while learning, it creates a sensory experience that’s much more engaging. Using concrete materials with them also helps children develop a conceptual understanding before learning abstract concepts. We also played various numeracy games in order to support children’s learning and inquiries.

This type of learning engagements encourage the students to notice the different combinations they are able to make.
