Cardstock manipulatives are the favorite of students of all ages. Given a choice, students choose the colorful matching cards, number lines with movable tags, sequencing cards, and other manipulatives over other types of materials. Cardstock manipulatives are motivating and non-threatening; nevertheless, they are conceptual work that is increasingly thought-provoking and challenging. Cardstock manipulatives are welcomed by students as an important step in the progression to abstraction.
Cardstock manipulatives are shipped in full-sized pages which include five to nine problems per exercise. Lamination is recommended. Preparation involves cutting and organization. Organization labels are always included.
