Math resources!

Hi guys!

I've been working on some Math curriculum for my district and have a few little things to share with you! I'm working on setting up some easy peasy math station ideas for the first couple of weeks of school.

Does anyone else find it hard to go back to the very beginning again?! At the end of the year they know SO much! I forget every year how little they know at the beginning! Which is funny...because I taught Pre-K before I taught Kinder! It's hard for me to get in that mind set again. All it takes is the first 2 minutes with those new kiddos though and I remember . You don't know how to hold a pencil? Place materials neatly in the supply boxes? It's all coming back to me now..

So, these little station activities are EASY PEASY. Lots of fine motor, one to one correspondence, great station activities for math in the beginning of the year.





I've also been working on getting our daily calendar companions all set up for my new kiddos {if only I could have that list!} Here's the cover I made for Ella
Here's what the inside of the folder will look like. The orange sheet is the daily page that we will cover every single day. There are SO many skills that you incorporate into calendar time and they spiral all throughout the year. Some of the white pages on the left will be changed out depending on the specific skills/ numbers that we are working on in that part of the year. Here's a closer look at the front and back pages of the every-day page. Counting on is a new standard for us and I *know* that our older grade teachers will love us for really practicing with the number line a lot!Here's an example of one of the white pages that will change throughout the year or depending on the students' needs.

  3. Thanks for the freebie! And I also find it hard to remember how "little" the kindergartners are when they first come in! It's definitely back to basics!!

  7. Ok so I LOVE your pack and would love to use it but I have a question and forgive me if it has been asked before. When do the students complete this work? At their seats? on the floor? as a small group? Thanks, Prudence

    1. No worries Prudence! In the beginning, I introduce the calendar companion in small groups. I want to make sure that they understand the beginning conceps, we go over taking care of the markers, erasers, etc. and then as I see we are more comfortable using them we use them whole group during calendar time. I've done them on the carpet, but it can get a little cramped so I usually have them do the calendars at their desks. I have students come up to the Smart Board and complete it there while we work so I can mill the room and make sure everyone is getting it. The love it!
