what is it
What is it?
  • Multisensory learning approach that caters to all learner styles
    • Auditory, Visual, and Tactile/Kinesthetic
  • Used in general education in grades PK, K, and grades 1-5

how it works
How it Works
    • Each digit from 1-9 has TouchPoints corresponding to the digit’s value
      • Digits 1-5: single TouchPoints
      • Digits 6-9: double TouchPoints
    • By touching the points, students begin to associate numbers with real values
      • Addition: count forwards
      • Subtraction: count backwards
  • Always have student repeat the problem and answer aloud
    • This will reinforce basic fact memorization
    • Channels all 3 learning types (A, V, T/K)

touchmath statements
TouchMath Statements
  • The pattern in which the student touches the TouchPoints is crucial in obtaining the correct answer.
  • Addition:

“I touch and count all the TouchPoints on the numerals”

  • Subtraction:

“I touch the first numeral, say its name, and count backward on the other numeral.”

Remember:

More on top, no need to stop!

More on floor, go next door!

Numbers the same, zero’s the game!

addition
Addition
  • Line up the numbers
  • Draw place value line
  • Start by voicing the largest number
  • Continue counting by using the TouchPoints dots
  • Record number below the line
  • Regroup and carry over if needed
  • Count the TouchPoints including the carried number
  • Record final number below the line
subtraction
Subtraction
  • Line up numbers
  • Draw place value line
  • Start by voicing largest number
  • Count the TouchPoints

subtraction with regrouping
Subtraction with Regrouping
