    math manipulatives
    By Lizzie3

    I teach third grade. My students love to use "edible" manipulatives. Every year when I introduce multiplication as repeated addition, I hand out bags of fruit loop cereal to everyone. They use them to sort out groups in order to solve problems. When finished, each student is given some "shoestring licorice" on which to string their fruit loops. They love making "candy necklaces" at the end of math class. I also use elbow macaroni(uncooked of course, ha ha) as easy inexpensive counters.
