Congratulations! You're ahead of the game. You're ready to download and print your customized, reproducible worksheets or print additional Activity Panel Manuals.
As a panel owner, you have exclusive access to an extensive selection of downloadable worksheets that you may reproduce and use for years to come. These paper-and-pencil exercises are designed to work along with the outdoor Activity Panel to create multisensory learning experiences for students of all abilities.
We encourage each educator using the panel to have their own copy of the Activity Panel Manual. Simply download your copy here and use it as a handy reference. The manual outlines the basic steps for teaching TouchMath counting, addition, backward counting, subtraction, skip counting and multiplication. It also presents the strategies you need to bring classroom learning to the playground.
Panel owners can take advantage of our free TouchMath Teacher Training Program plus receive bonus materials. A complete description of the program is described on page 2 of the Activity Panel Manual.
