As part of the Beyond Centers and Circle Time curriculum, we have a classroom entirely devoted to Manipulatives. What are manipulatives? Manipulatives are toys that fit together in a finite number of ways. Unlike blocks that fit together in an infinite number of ways, puzzles, lacing beads, peg letters, Lincoln Logs, Legos, and stacking people only fit together at certain angles. All activities in the Manipulatives Room coincide with the focus of the month. Play groups spend one morning a week in the Manipulatives Room with the Manipulatives teacher, Mrs. Jeevani.
