Highly Recommended Manipulative for Young Learners (Reading)


Raising a precocious reader takes more than letter writing practice, phonemic awareness games, learning simple vocabulary, and answering questions about stories. The use of manipulative is greatly commended to engage children in hands-on learning. This educational technique banks on the idea that learning is enhanced when students acquire knowledge through active processes that engage them (Hartshorn and Boren, 1991) and this is also supported by both learning theory and educational research in the classroom.

Aside from the strong foundation it provides, learning becomes more fun and it also offers ample opportunities for kids to be challenged. Here are some of the highly- recommended manipulatives for young learners. I also provided links on the title for more product info and prices.

 These are textured letters to stimulate and enhance memory of the written language. These language symbols are an important pathway to learning how to read and spell.

2. LEARNING RESOURCES ALPHABET SOUP SORTERS-
Support alphabet awareness by recognizing letter sounds and shapes. Also builds early vocabulary, oral language, sorting, and fine motor skills.

It is a manipulative-based phonics program that supports essential components of reading first and is a distinct hands-on manipulative to teach literacy. Color-coded, interlocking language manipulatives is the ideal supplement to all phonics and reading programs.

  2. I think SENSORY LETTERS is the best manipulative for reading, because it can trigger kids brain more effectively

  3. I love the use of manipulatives when I'm teaching. Kids learn in different ways and you really do need to tailor to their learning style. I would love to get the sensory letters for my little guy, he's really hands on. We do this one where we put paint in a zip lock bag and he traces letters on the outside.
