Making Math Fun
Mrs. Julie Yergler’s 4th grade classroom at Cissna Park Grade School has been enjoying a wide variety of math manipulatives purchased through a mini-grant from the Cissna Park Education Foundation. Fraction circles, dry erase number lines, mini protractors, dominoes, plastic money, and math concept sort cards are helping students in gaining a deeper understanding of math concepts taught in the classroom.
“In the age of Covid-19, it has been helpful for each student to have their own set of ‘math tools’ rather than having to rely on shared resources,” said Yergler.
The manipulatives purchased are able to be used throughout the school year when covering a wide variety of math topics. Mrs. Yergler said she and the students are grateful for the support of the Cissna Park Education Foundation.
