Launch Pad is a math program to use as a precursor to Rocket Math. The purpose of Launch Pad is to guide students from number writing into a concrete understanding of addition. Launch Pad Math is a differentiated program that can be used in preschool, kindergarten, first grade, or a special needs classroom.
Students begin the program by copying and printing numerals. As students progress through the program they identify amounts in ten frames. Then students begin to add amounts to ten frames.
**Rocket Math is credited to Dr. Don Crawford. This program was NOT created by me. I simply used his concepts to create a program for students who are not quite ready for Rocket Math.
