Little Jack's Unifix Cubes

  Kelly Genano    Hamilton West  

With his head in his hands and little fists gripping his hair as if pain could torture his brain into the right answer, Jack is the picture of frustration. The paper beneath his bent head is spotted with salty tears and his pencil is lonely from disuse. He just can't wrap his head around the maths in front of him.  His teacher lays a calming hand on his shoulder and sends up a silent wish for some tactile math aids.   

Will someone fulfill that wish? Give a tactile learner like Jack and his classmates the gift of clarity and true understanding: The gift of unifix cubes and place value equipment.
