As I read this week's chapter, I could not help but wonder how this would relate to the California Common Core Standards. Here is an overview of what math may look like in kindergarten.

I created these Number Cards which you could use with your class as part of your Math Routines. They work well when teaching Counting and Cardinality. Give students individual ten frames (located in the back of the book) to count and practice with you. Show students two cards and have them compare the numbers. When you feel your students have mastered these place them in a Math Work Station along with your classroom created I Can Chart.
Who doesn't love puzzles? Inspired by the number cards, I made Number Puzzles. All you will need to do is print onto card stock paper, laminate and cut. Wondering where to cut? Well, that is up to you. For students who can read the number, you will make them a 3 piece puzzle. Great for early first grade students. Or if they are just beginning to understand number, make a 2 piece puzzle instead by cutting out the bottom third.
I'm planning on copying onto different colored card stock paper so that I can have more than one student working on this concept but a different work stations.
Happy Teaching and Learning!
PS- Is is just me? Or isn't this blog book study the greatest! :)
