Math Program

I am a special educator working in a third grade language based classroom. Does any one have suggestion on a math series or math program that teaches math with less language demands. The school system that I work in uses Investigations, which uses a lot of language to teach math concepts. All suggestion are welcomed!

Depending on your students level...

Touch Math is a really great program for very low students. It is very hands on and touchable concepts with number identification, counting, and low stages addition and subtraction.

If you have slightly higher students, Do the Math by Marilyn Burns has a TON of manipulatives. The program I have begins at early addition skills and goes to end of division skills. It also has literature books that connect to the lessons, with workbooks for students teachers guides, and everything you need to teach the lesson. I have not used it much, but from what i have used I like it. One of the math resource teachers went to the training for it but said it was a little too low for her students so she gave it to me.

Good luck!

I have had limited experience with Touch math. I'll check out both of the programs that you've suggested. Have you had any experience with Saxon Math?

I'm not a huge Saxon fan... One you might want to look at is Math U See, which is marketed mainly to homeschoolers. It introduces things gently, one at a time, and works towards mastery with lots of review. The student pages are only black and white, which minimizes distractions. Lots of white space too, so it's not intimidating. It comes with its own manipulatives.
