Dear R Rosas,

I agree with the idea that using an applet or virtual manipulative alone with
young children (and also middle school students, for that matter) is not as
powerful a tool as when it is combined with physical manipulatives and/or paper
and pencil activities.

Varnelle Moore wrote a unit for primary students using the Integer Bar
applet:

Besides using all three ideas (manipulative, technology, paper/pencil) she also
includes stories (literature) in her activities. You can see her kindergarten
class at work here:
