Each lesson in the kit includes a daily meeting, a new increment of instruction, guided practice of new and previously introduced concepts, and number fact practice. Written and oral assessments are built into the program and are given at regular intervals.
Kindergartners will develop skills including oral counting; recognizing and sequencing numbers; identifying ordinal position; acting out addition and subtraction stories; counting with one-to-one correspondence; sorting; patterning; graphing real objects and pictures; identifying and counting pennies, nickels, and dimes; identifying one half; identifying shapes; covering and replicating geometric designs; measuring using nonstandard units of measure; telling time to the hour; and using a calendar. Oral assessments are built into the program.
The Math K homeschool kit contains the following:
Teacher’s Manual. The heart of each K-3 program is the teacher’s manual, which employs a unique instructional format. It contains daily lessons, each of which includes pre-class preparation instructions, a list of materials, and the entire scripted lesson. Scripted lessons provide the parent with questioning strategies and language designed to help children understand mathematical concepts. Since the teacher’s manual is nonconsumable, it can be used in successive years with the purchase of new student workbooks and meeting books.
Meeting Book. Each grade level has its own consumable meeting book, which is used during The Meeting at the beginning of each day.
Softcover, spiral bound Teacher’s Manual has 439 pages.
