Learning Resources Jumbo Magnetic Numbers
About this deal
As a teacher with many years of experience incorporating math manipulatives into my lessons, I appreciate how useful they are in helping me teach different math concepts. Many items can be used in multiple ways. I enjoy watching children have “lightbulb” moments when they finally understand an idea thanks to the tools they are using. I am ecstatic when children are exploring with a tub of manipulatives, and they discover something new, a pattern, or a way of use. How to Use Math Manipulatives Math Manipulatives During Lessons The Windmill Books "Food" magnetic numbers and uppercase letters were obtained in late 2020 also as an attempt to replicate the Megcos magnetic numerals (see above), as well as to boost the magnetic collection. 90 numerals (9 each), 72 letters (8 A's, 4 E's, G's, I's, O's, S's and U's, and 2 of the rest) and 21 symbols (3 of each: plus, minus, times, division, equals, long bar and long division sign) were obtained.

When teaching basic addition, I use magnetic counters that can be used on the whiteboard to illustrate a problem (i.e., 2+5=7). Students use two-sided counting chips to solve another similar problem at the carpet. Three unidentified wooden numeral and letter sets (named Set W3, Set W4 and Set W5 here) have been obtained between 2020 and 2021. All colors are fixed. Unifix cubes are the colored cubes that connect in one way, and snap cubes are colored cubes that can connect in different ways. Both can be used in many ways to teach many math concepts, such as patterning, place value, and measurement. Snap cubes are one of the most used math manipulatives. They visually demonstrate many number concepts, such as counting, grouping, adding, and taking away. Children love snapping the cubes together to make number “trains.”When teaching counting or identifying numbers to 100, I use a large 100’s chart and a pointer. We take turns pointing to the numbers as we practice counting by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. Students use small 100’s charts to point and follow along as we count, or they locate different numbers given orally.

When teaching geometric solids, I use large foam 3D shapes that I can hold and point out its features. Students use smaller similar shapes to find those same features, to locate similar objects in the scavenger hunt around the class, and use them to create structures. When teaching measurement, I use many non-standard units, such as cubes, to illustrate how long, tall, wide something is. Students use the cubes to compare and measure with the cubes around the classroom (i.e., my arm is 20 cubes long).Since 2018, I have been attempting to find a new set of megcos magnetic numbers, or other branded magnetic numbers using the same mold. Because of that, the Early Learning Center numerals were obtained in 2021. Class sevens are the most valuable and rare sets of the collection. Most are either handmade, discontinued or have a special meaning to me.
