Reading and writing are two areas in which it is often difficult to get students excited about learn. Whether students are struggling to understand what they are reading or having trouble thinking of something about which to write, reading and writing have become subjects of fear. However, these two foundational skills are crucial to student success in all academic areas. We, as educators, need to find a way to motivate students again. Belenky and Nokes provide evidence that use of Manipulative - base teaching in classroom can motivate students to learn. Using physical objects while teaching in Language Arts is not common, but it provides a hands - on way for students to interact with new information while creating understandings of the manner in which concepts work. Students get excited about recreating their understanding of the story during and after reading. In addition, this type of learning is fun and the kind of project - base experience that students will remember. When students work with tangible materials, they can interact with stories to create understandings. Students have physical models to analyze and discuss, providing a more engaging way to draw meaning from material they read. According to Marley and Carbonneau, teaching strategies using manipulative materials provide students with better understanding of concepts through working with either direct example of concrete concept or representation of abstract concept. Patricia Blake, first - grade National Board - certify teacher, explained that using Manipulative materials with Language Arts is like exploration time when we can make sense of things we have read or talked about. Students are able to ask questions while exploring to gain understanding. Sometimes, students work in the wrong direction, but from failures gain experience and knowledge of how to persevere. Blake feels this is time well spent in the classroom, which corresponds to claims by Bruning and Horn that reading and writing are Problem - Solving tasks and, therefore, need time. Students need time to work through all the complexities of stories prior to writing about them or trying to explain their understandings. This gets students excited about reading and writing by giving them a way to be more hands - on with material.S In addition to motivating students, use of Manipulatives supports requirements by national standards to dig deeper into learning. Common Core standards require depth of knowledge that prepares students for college and careers by utilizing texts that are more complex and the ability to pull evidence from texts. Standards call for more authentic and real - world experiences for students, which use of hands - on materials supports. Students need opportunities to model learning, enhance speaking and listening skills, and blend understandings from multiple areas. Improving Reading and Reading Comprehension As Jensen explains, reading is one of most important factors affecting the development of children's brain. Reading skills are not hardwired into the human brain; every skill of reading must be teach.

Kindergarten

For example, Craig show significant gains after working with manipulatives in kindergarten. When he entered kindergarten, Craig knew only two letters of the alphabet and could not write his name. His teacher, Marlise Tiffany, confirmed that working with manipulatives grabbed Craigs ' attention and helped him get up to speed. Tiffany say, once he knew he was at the same level as the rest of the class, he grew confident. It all comes together. For the youngest students, simple manipulatives can be very effective. Foam or magnetic letters are great, as are letter tiles and even alphabet blocks. You can even use DIY manipulatives, such as pipe cleaners that students can bend into shapes of letters. One clever teacher even uses plastic Easter egg decorations. She write several consonants on one half, and word ending on the other. So students could twist egg and make words like c - at, b - at, s - at, etc.

Even Middle Schoolers

Reading manipulatives can be just thing for middle - grade students as well. Sixth - grader Julie was struggling with a reader who had slipped through cracks. When her teacher, Marsha Young, attends a reading convention in Illinois, she discovers reading rods and goes home with Sentence Building set. You should think of using manipulatives with older kids, Young say, but I think I give it a try. Young believes that all her studentsespecially, struggling older readerscan benefit from working with kinaesthetic products. Julie's experience supports that belief: after working with Reading manipulatives, she ended sixth grade Reading at a more advanced level. When it comes to reading manipulatives, be creative! A fresh, hand - on approach to reading can make all the difference for some students.
