A comprehensive, activity-based program aligned to the California standards, kindergarteners will gain a strong foundation in basic math, preparing them for more advanced thinking. This textbook presents concepts in a systematic, engaging and fun way; hands-on tasks, meaningful activities, and attractive illustrations engage students' active participation in the learning process. New concepts are introduced in a spiral-method, while the Concrete> Pictorial>Abstract approach enables students to encounter math through concrete activities before progressing to pictorial and abstract representations. Ten units cover matching & sorting, numbers to 5 & 10, order, shapes, patterns, length & size, weight, capacity, and comparing sets. Teacher instructions to read are included at the bottom of each worksheet. A section of "math at home" activities are included (for units 3-10) at the back of the book, along with a visual glossary and index.
