Teaching Math Standards in Kindergarten

ABC Schoolhouse is excited to release a comprehensive new math resource that will support teachers as they address the new Common Core Math Standards inAchieve the Common Core: Teaching Math Standards in  Kindergarten Kindergarten. “Achieve the Common Core: Teaching Math Standards in Kindergarten” contains over 380 pages of activities and instructional supports that address each of the Common Core Math Standards in Kindergarten. This resource features five delightful “Core-Animals” that captivate young learners and guide them through the five math domains: Counting & Cardinality (Cat), Operations & Algebraic Thinking (Octopus), Number & Operations in Base Ten (Numbat), Measurement & Data (Monkey), and Geometry (Giraffe). Teachers will also find helpful common core resources, such as: Domain, Cluster, Standard, and Math Practices Cards; Core-Animal Posters; a wealth of learning activities, and patterns for Student Data Notebooks & Mathematician Celebrations. Everything teachers need to introduce, strengthen, and lead students to mastery of the concepts and skills of the common core mathematics standards is provided, including: practice pages, number & vocabulary cards, and blackline patterns. This is truly one of the most comprehensive resources available. As with all our books, the motivational artwork is the original creation of Stefani Sadler. Although this resource addresses the Kindergarten Math Standards, it would easily supplement both Pre-K and First Grade instruction as well.

The hard copy version is split into 2 parts for ease of use.

Bloom's Taxonomy and Depth of Knowledge Charts

Many teachers are now asked to turn in, or post, lesson plans as part of their professional expectations. For many, it is an expectation to also include Bloom's or Depth-of-Knowledge Levels alongside learning targets/objectives. To support teachers with this expectation, ABCSchoolhouse has designed posters/charts to meet this need using the art of Stefani Sadler. This e-book contains a set of color and a set of black/white charts for both the traditional and revised Bloom's Taxonomy and Depth of Knowledge. These charts may be used in their current 8.5" x 11" form or enlarged to create classroom posters. We have also provided graphic cards for your own creative classroom use. This e-book is 47 pages in length.
