Where The Teaching Things Are


These activities are my FAVORITE way to teach math concepts in kindergarten! Each math activity is hands-on and tied to a picture book that covers the same topic. I just love read alouds and anytime I can incorporate them into a lesson I do! I’ve used these activities with my own students for years and they’re always a hit!

This packet includes the following math skills and books:

  • 2D shapes – Mouse Shapes
  • Telling time to the hour – Bats Around the Clock
  • Nonstandard units of measurement – Inch by Inch
  • Skip counting by tens – Plenty of Petals
  • Addition within 10 – If You Were a Plus Sign
  • Subtraction within 10 – Who Took The Cookies from the Cookie Jar?

Each activity also comes with a teacher page and a black/white version. I really hope your students enjoy these activities as much as mine have!
