Please introduce yourself to those around you.
Manipulative theory says: "Begin with free play & unstructured time before setting the stage for work" so we will do something like that.
Open the spread sheet just below and using the notes pictured on the spread sheet, see what you can do. Then we can better judge how to continue.
Don't worry about messing up. You can always download another spread sheet.
This session and page is built for both those who know how to use concrete manipulatives and those who do not. If you do not know how to use a concrete manipulative, a digital manipulative is only a play thing. So we will consider a bit of theory first. This page is also written for those who have experience in cutting/selecting/pasteing and those who do not.
The time it takes to complete this work depends on one's skill set.
