I have manipulatives in my classroom, but on many lessons I wait to pull them out until students are struggling. I think I will put them in a more prominent place (with my other ready-to-access resources like multiplication charts) so that students know they can use them any time.
This year I would like to use algebra tiles to teach concepts like combining like terms and the distributive property. I have seen other teachers use them, and the students really seem to understand it better when they get to “play” with something in front of them.
