"Words cannot express how AMAZING this resource is! Tara has thought of and INCLUDED EVERYTHING to make learning math fun and ENGAGING for our little learners from easy to read lesson plans, HANDS-ON DIFFERENTIATED small group plans, PLAY-BASED learning center ideas (using manipulatives many of us already have in our classrooms!), MUSIC and MOVEMENT, and adorable MASCOTS for each unit that the kids will absolutely love! There are so many things included that the only trouble will be figuring out how to fit it ALL in! It is a MUST HAVE resource for Pre-K and any Kindergarten or Sped teachers that like hands-on, minds-on learning! -Nicki"

What is Pre-K Math?

Pre-K Math units are teacher-created, kid-tested, and most importantly kid-approved! Pre-K Math takes away that monotonous way of teaching math where students sit and listen to the teacher TEACH math. Instead, Pre-K Math encourages guidance from the teacher while the students TEACH and LEARN math through hands-on and engaging math activities with their partners.

Pre-K Math units are made up of 10 instructional days each, but can be adjusted to fit your classroom needs. The units include assessment pieces as a way to ensure student growth over the unit.These are just a few highlights you’ll see using the Pre-K Math Units; kids talking about math, kids using manipulatives, activities that are fun + engaging, learning that requires critical thinking!

Pre-K Math curriculum is a 35 week math curriculum that includes lesson plans that break down a 60 minute block math time into these sections {movement, rhythm, whole-group lesson, small-group lesson and apply & practice}. The units will also include any and all cards needed to make the lessons successful! You will just need to provide the manipulatives like teddy bears or cubes!

Pre-K Math is a simple print and teach math curriculum. No more tracking down ideas, worksheets, cards, etc! I have it covered!

Let's hear more about what Pre-K teachers are saying about this curriculum!

"What I love about this new PreK Math Curriculum is that Tara really thought about each and every piece of this including research and collaboration with preschool teachers to determine what would be best. At the end of the day, I appreciate that it is DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE, and PLAY BASED. I can also say, that the small group differentiation is a HUGE time saver for planning. Don't make the mistake of NOT purchasing this's bound to be a game changer for you!" -Brent
