Amazing Mathmagicians In Pre-K

My students need games, centers, kits, manipulatives, and CDs to practice, reinforce, and enrich beginning math skills and concepts.

My Students

It's another exciting school year and for my first-time students, everything is fresh and new. Our first day, I asked each child what they would like to learn. One little girl answered, "Now that I'm in school, I need to learn all the numbers!" My goal is to get to 100 and cover other math concepts, too.

I have two classes of 18 four-year-olds motivated to learn about everything!

They are enrolled in the School Readiness Language Development Program (SRLDP). Primarily English language learners who qualify for free lunch, the goal of this program, unique to LAUSD, is language development. Students receive instruction in their primary language, Spanish, as well as English language development. Aside from the 3-4 adult-led activities, my classroom has 15 independent centers that change with each new theme. The math curriculum in Pre-Kindergarten includes counting, identifying numbers, and working with geometric shapes. We work on these skills during circle time, in small group activities, and centers.

My Project

A developmentally appropriate Pre-K math program integrates math activities with other relevant projects such as science and social studies. The All Around Town Sorting Game, Category Sorting Concept Kit, and Counting Cars will provide numerous and varied opportunities that connect math concepts with other curricular areas. Children also acquire math skills through projects, spontaneous play, and situations of daily living. My students will mimic laundry sorting with the Know Your Colors Sorting Baskets. They will practice counting skills by putting birthday candles on the Counting Cakes. My students and I always enjoy music and movement activities. We have some silly learning fun while singing and dancing. The CDs by Dr. Jean, Greg and Steve and Jack Hartmann include songs such as 'The Number Game' and 'Movin' 2 Math'.

The goal of my Pre-K math program is to enable my students to use math through exploration, discovery, and meaningful problem-solving.

The requested resources and materials will allow children to access the curriculum in developmentally appropriate activities. Sorting, categorizing, manipulating, experimenting, singing, and dancing will create a classroom of amazing mathmagicians!
