My New Singapore Math Manipulatives!

I get the luxury of ordering new math materials for my school.  To prepare for all of the common core instruction in place value, fractions, and decimals, I ordered lots of fraction circles, some more unifix cubes, and some place value strips.  When my order came in this week, it was like Christmas!  That is always the feeling I have anytime I rip open boxes of new math materials!  I am most excited about the place value strips which are pictured below.   As you can see in the pictures, they come apart so that students actually see the value of the number.  These are one of the Singapore Math manipulatives.  Each color matches the Singapore math discs if you decide to get those as well which I use with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade.  If you want to have a smaller size, there is also a copy, cut and laminate version in one of Sandra Chen’s books, The Parent Connection for Singapore Math.

    The website: http://www.crystalspringsbooks.com/place-value-strip-7-digit-3-6-csb.html did not mention how many sets are provided. I was wondering if you remember how many came in an order? Are they very durable? It look like you laminated them.

    Thanks!

      Theresa, thanks for commenting! The sets I ordered only came with one card for each number so that there are 10 cards for each place value. They aren’t laminated in the picture. They are only somewhat glossy card stock. There is a book by Sandra Chen that has printables so that you could make kid sets of these in a smaller version. The school purchased this book for us and I made student sets of the place value cards. I don’t know how effective this was though for the kids to have the numbers. It seemed a bit laborious for the kids to have all of the sets of numbers on their desks, and for them to pull a number out of all their stacks of numbers. In other words I don’t think I would give the sets of numbers to the kids very often. Although I think it’s valuable for them to see and manipulate at least once or twice. Sandra Chen is a teacher and Singapore math trainer. I will have to get back to you with the book name.

      The Parent Connection for Singapore Math: Tools to Help Them Get It & Get Behind It (Paperback) Sandra Chen. I believe that this is the book with the printable numbers (smaller sized) in the back like the large ones you can purchase. I can’t swear that this is the book, but I’m almost positive. I hope this helps.
