EL Focus
Manipulatives provide students the chance to work with a concrete example of a mathematical concept. But the power of manipulatives comes from the chance to connect the concrete item to a conceptual idea. For English Learners, this connection is even more crucial as students may be unfamiliar with content language without a visual representation.
