What educators are saying

I loved this math unit. It is easy to follow and replicate the activities and I love that it is very hands on and not work sheet work.
This is a great resources with a variety of hands on activities just right for pre k students practicing these skills.
Also included in
  1. This bundle includes all 22 kindergarten math curriculum units. I have designed these units to be hands-on and exciting. I am a big believer in learning through play, and each center I have created encourages students to have fun while learning. I have also included response sheets and worksheets
