TouchMath

Lance started a math program today that I’m so happy to be reviewing, TouchMath 1st Grade. Yes my son is in 2nd grade but there is material that he hasn’t covered yet, so I thought it would be best to start with the ‘first’ level. That’s what we call it instead of 1st grade Winking smile.

Last week I briefly went over how to count using the touch points. I was pleasently surprised today when I got the TouchNumerals with Base 10 and he quickly placed the touch points in the correct spots. I had him check to make sure by using the Student Number Cards. I laminated the Student Number Cards for durability.

As you can see, not only did Lance use them but his siblings (and cousin) had fun with them as well.

With the TouchNumerals manipulatives you can teach addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and more, all in a fun way. At least we are having lots and lots of fun with them.

Included is a 20 page manual explains how to teach the different math concepts. I plan to teach Ethan and Brent how to multiply and divide using these. My little 4yr. old nephew will use TouchNumerals to learn his numbers.
Tomorrow Lance will go over the touchpoints again. I want them cemented into his cute brain. He’ll also start using some of the worksheets. I can’t wait. I have printed almost all of the modules.
