This bundle contains four resources for the price of three: Kindergarten Math Journals, Counting Rhymes, K-2 Addition and Subtraction Strategies, and K-2 Math Projects.
1. Kindergarten Math Journals
contains 90 problem solving tasks designed to develop key mathematical skills, concepts and understandings. All tasks are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and are formatted so that they can be printed on adhesive address labels (Avery 5160). Simply print, peel and pass out for students to stick in their journal. No more messy glue sticks or time wasted copying out tasks!
Included in this file:
- a six page guide to getting started with math journals
- 90 math journal tasks covering all Kindergarten CCSS
- overview tables showing the specific Common Core Standard/s for each task
- a math journal rubric in both student and classroom display size
- additional math resources such as dot cards and ten frames for use with some
2. Counting Rhymes
provide opportunities for children to practice a range of math skills including counting, numeral recognition, addition and subtraction. In addition to these benefits, research suggests that early learning of traditional rhymes and rhythmic poems, songs, and chants significantly enhances early reading skills and phonemic awareness.
The 44 Counting Rhymes in this file are provided in four formats:
- a large format for Shared Reading,
- a student size copy,
- a cloze activity, and
- a sentence strip activity.
Some rhymes also include templates for students to innovate on the structure of the text to create original rhymes for display as wall stories or class books
3. K-2 Addition and Subtraction Strategies
includes over 280 pages suitable for small group instruction, independent practice, homework, or assessment purposes. Section 1 focuses on developing efficient strategies for single digit addition and subtraction facts within 20, with a strong emphasis on the three major clusters for addition and subtraction basic facts: count on, use doubles and make a ten.
Section 2 focuses on more advanced addition and subtraction strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and the relationship between addition and subtraction. This section takes students beyond the basic facts and allows them to see how previously learned mental strategies can be used to compute addition and subtraction problems with two and three digit numbers.
Section 3 includes 35 math centers focused on three major clusters for addition and subtraction basic facts: count on, use doubles and make a ten.
4. Math Projects K-2
contains 34 take home projects designed to provide opportunities for students to solve problems and communicate math thinking and understandings. All projects are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Send home one project a month (or per math unit) and build connections between home and school while providing a change from worksheets for math homework. All projects provide opportunities for students to make their own decisions as to how to organize and record their work without the structure of a worksheet or template, while requiring minimal materials other than those found in most homes. Some projects require the support of an adult family member in taking a neighborhood walk, visiting a local store, park or library.
