Learning Materials/Graphic Organizers/Manipulatives/Etc.

Graphic Organizers help students to understand information in a visual way, and they are a wonderful ongoing reference tool as they develop their skills.

The use of manipulatives and drawing/visuals are the best strategies for math instruction, because they incorporate two important learning modalities-visual and kinesthetic.  Math manipulatives can involve using counters for learning math facts and developing number sense (the ability to work comfortably with numbers), fraction strips for understanding fractions, and unifix cubes for developing the concept of place value.
