Here’s a preview of what you’ll get:
First 9 Weeks: Introduction to problem solving, how to record in math notebooks, how to share mathematical thinking, basic counting skills, comparing numbers, composing/decomposing numbers, introduction to addition/subtraction, 2-D shapes, position words.

Third Nine Weeks: Addition/subtraction (learning how to write equations), 2-D and 3-D shapes.
Fourth Nine Weeks: Addition/subtraction, composing/decomposing numbers, making 10, teen numbers as “10 and some more”.
