Have you ever struggled with how to teach the required math standards.. but still make it fun and – most important – at the right level for every one of your students?
I’ll admit it. I have. I developed these math units after struggling to make our big box curriculum meet our needs and finding I needed to supplement a whole lot. These units have been classroom-tested and kid approved. I’ve used these units the past 3 years and my kids have never loved math more – or had better data!
I’m even more excited about them now because, by popular demand, I am currently working on adding differentiation options to each unit! I just finished Unit 1 Numbers to 5 and I am in love. I have included below level/intervention and enrichment options that is going to make it so easy to just TEACH!
Let me show you what’s included:
Isn’t it gorgeous?! So what’s included in each unit? Well, each unit contains or will contain: lesson plans, differentiation options, anchor charts, and an end of unit assessment (I am currently working my way through updating each unit).
The lesson plans include: a number sense warm up, a teacher-directed activity, a partner game or activity, independent practice, and a home extension.
This is an example of one of the lessons. Everything is laid out for you!
Then you have your differentiation plans. You can use these in small groups or during the lesson! Either way will work.
Each lesson contains a partner activity. For this lesson, students are playing number bump with the numbers 0-5. For below level, students will be playing with JUST the numbers 0 and 1! For enrichment, students will use subitizing cards instead of the number die. They’re very easy changes to make to support each of your kiddos!
Some of the subitizing cards are pictures above.
I have also included extra practice sheets for those intervention groups (although nothing says you can’t use them with ALL students! 😉
Each lesson also contains an independent activity. For this one, students will be matching all of the pictures that represent the number 1 to their number page.
I have also included a home extension for each unit. I know many teachers who use these as exit tickets or morning work instead of home extensions! You can use any piece of these units however you need to!
I have put the curriculum bundle and the first 4 units only SALE through 7/18 only!
If you’ve stuck around to the end of this post, then yay! You get to hear about a special flash freebie I have to celebrate all of YOU!
