I am so excited about this blog post today! We just received the brand new Kindergarten Math With Confidence curriculum by Kate Snow! I bought it as soon as I knew it was out because we loved using Preschool Math at Home with my 4-year-old last year. Now that my daughter is five, we am going to use this over the summer and into the fall! Keep reading to see my first-thoughts and some key components I’ve noted about the curriculum! Keep reading to learn more!
-Best for children ages 5-6
-Child doesn’t need any formal math program prior to this, but it does help if they can hold and pencil and count to 10!
-Loved that she included a note about frustration. If your child seems frustrated, take a step back and give them a break for a week or two, then come back to it!
-There are 10 units. Each unit divided into 2-5 weeks. This makes a total of 32 weeks.
-There’s a “Math book of the Week” which I love! It’s a read-aloud that goes along with the concept. Love that Snow attached the math to literature!
-Lesson Structure: review warm-up, hands-on activity, and then workbook page last. I really like that the author emphasizes the importance of hands-on activities for young children. Math is a very tactile subject at this age!
-Lesson length is usually 15 minutes or less!
-Check point pages help you decide whether to move onto a new unit or stay on the current one until your child is ready!
NOTE: If you want to see the student workbook pages and the teacher workbook, watch the video below!
