**Thank you so much for joining me today for a post all about PRE-K MATH! Before I start in explaining the program… I’d love to share what fellow Pre-K teachers are saying about the program!**

*“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 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 curriculum…it’s bound to be a game changer for you!” -Brent*

**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!

These are just a few highlights you’ll see using the Pre-K Math Units:

Below is a quick overview of how each unit will be set up. You will notice that you might see more than you can squeeze into one day. That is okay and what is best about Pre-K Math. Pre-K Math is made with the teacher in mind, so pick and choose from the material based on students’ need.

**A closer look at the unit: **Within each unit of Pre-K Math you will receive 10 teaching lessons, or ten days of instruction. Each lesson will come with a daily practice sheet as well. Along with the lessons and practice sheets, the unit will also include any and all student cards/hands-on materials needed for the students to be successful. The lesson will also have a paired interactive notebook sheet and aligned center mat. The teacher will only need to provide the manipulatives, such as cubes or counters.

The units will also come with math talk images. These can be printed or displayed on an interactive whiteboard. Along with the necessary material for each week, Pre-K Math also comes with an assessment for each unit.

Hi, I love this resource! I am so excited to purchase and use this with my class. I have a question about what kind of paper you print the units on? I noticed it seems thicker but doesn’t look laminated? Also, do you have a link for the mascots?

Thank you!

Tara says

Hi there! I printed on cardstock 😀 Here’s a link to the mascots! https://www.amazon.com/shop/littlemindsatwork?listId=1LP1X2SQIOJEO

Tamara Fisher says

I am a curriculum coordinator. We are looking for new math programs for our building. Many do not have pre K. This has prompted me to look at your program. What standards is this built around? Do you have a sample you can allow me to download or you can send to me?

Tara says

Hi there! I can send a sample unit if you’d like to message me at littlemindsatworkLLC@gmail.com

Thanks!

Tara

Sarah says

I absolutely love this math curriculum! It is so hands on and I feel like my kids really pick up on it fast! I do have a question though, my district is looking for a new math assessment that we can do fall, winter, spring to just assess how the kids are doing. I am wondering if you or any one else has any ideas of a simple pre-k assessment of beginning math skills. The one our district is using is very much based on Kindergarten standards and is WAY too much for the littles. Any input would be great. Thank you!

Tara says

Hi there Sarah! I’m so sorry I don’t have an assessment 🙁

Tara

Amanda says

Wondering how high the counting goes for this.

Tara says

Hi there! Students will count out sets to 20 like in my kindergarten math! They can rote count as high as you desire!

Thanks,

Tara

JR says

Hello! I love the organization of this bundle! I have a 3 year old group that would do well with this. I’m also looking for material a little more advanced for my 4 year old. She’s already hitting some of the kinder standards. Would this bundle accommodate or would I need one targeted for Kinder?

Nancy Wilde says

Hi – I am interested in purchasing your entire Pre-K math curriculum. Can you please specify what I will receive in the mail and what I will need to copy. Thank you! Nancy Wilde

Tara says

Hi there! I’m sorry TPT packets are just downloadable PDFs! Thanks,

Misty says

Hi,

Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea.These are absolutely incredible, .Very helpful! Cheers! X

Suzanne Pivovaroff says

We have been using this for the past few years and it has been wonderful. Printing and making packets has become laborious though. Would you suggest a simpler way to have all the text printed out? Including the student work pages?
