Manipulatives when working from home

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

In these days of working from home it is still important to work with manipulatives to explain math concepts to the student. Certainly the ones who have dyscalculia.

One wonderful source for that is the polypad from Mathigon. A rich source of various colorful manipulatives. It seems the best alternative for sitting next to the student with real manipulatives.

2e students better served

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

From Australia comes the news that they have now implemented a new mandate on how to identify and work with students who are both gifted and have a learning disability, the so-called 2e students.

The traditional way of identifying gifted students was to look at their achievement, but this overlooked students with hidden potential.

Dr Townend said twice-exceptional students need both learning support and enrichment or extension to reach their potential, and supporting the disability in the classroom was essential to level the playing field.

“It’s like giving a wheelchair to a child who cannot walk or glasses to a child who needs glasses,” she said.

Piano with dyscalculia

On facebook we read the solution Laurie Graham found when dealing with this

“For piano, I have been using “simply piano” app, (with a midi cord on an electric keyboard- makes a big difference).Unlike traditional sheet music which needs to be scanned with your eyes right to left , this app presents it rolling along in front of me, highlighting the notes I’m playing correctly in green, and I can play basic popular songs in a way that has eluded me after years of lessons.”
