----------------------------
Didax™ Unifix Mathematics Activities Book 1 authored by Don S Balka for Grades K – 2, Pre Counting, Early Counting, Addition Experiences is a collection of activities based in classroom usage of Unifix Cubes and related Unifix support materials.

Note:  Unifix cubes are multicolored, interlocking, chunky, poly cubes designed to aid Little Learners in the four and up age group as they learn math and number sense concepts.   

Unifix cubes symbolize components, link in one direction to remain fixed until taken apart.  Used for teaching and reinforcement work for content areas of number sense, patterning, computation including addition and subtraction as well as multiplication and division, measurement, organizing, sorting, grouping, counting and more. 

Packages of cubes are available in a diversity of colors and number of cubes.

Activities included in the Activities Book 1 authored by Don S Balka for Grades K – 2 are structured around fundamental core mathematical concepts taught during kindergarten through fourth grade levels. 

Each action lists recommended grade levels center of attention, focus theory, tasking and skills, recommended number of students per activity, in addition to the materials needed for the task.  Note: many activities are suitable for self-regulating use by students.

Don S. Balka, Ph.D., noted mathematics educator who has presented numerous workshops regarding use of math manipulatives with PK-12 students at national and regional conferences of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and at in-service trainings in school districts throughout the United States and the world presents a well planned work designed to aid the teaching of state math standards that developmentally fitting mathematics core curriculum for Grades 1 – 5 has obligation to promote the examination of an extensive assortment of mathematical thoughts and encourage detailed levels of understanding by focusing on key concepts and processes. 

Student accomplishment depends for the most part on the excellence of the foundation that is established during the first years of school.  Early Education Programs should fit the needs of the learner. 

The mathematics program of study for Grades 1 - 5 must lead Little Learners as they expand conceptual comprehension  of number, situational problems, and space by preparing examinations and analysis making use of ordinary articles and specifically designed materials including manipulatives, concrete materials, of which Unifix cubes are some of the most noteworthy.

Didax Unifix Mathematics Activities Book 1 for Grades K – 2, Pre Counting, Early Counting, Addition Experiences includes blackline masters for games and gameboards.

Happy to recommend Didax™ DonS Balka’s Didax Unifix Mathematics Activities Book 1 for Grades K – 2, Pre Counting, Early Counting, Addition Experiences
