Components

Student Book

The colorful and beautifully illustrated Student Books are based on the domains of CCSS.
Alpha Kindergarten Math is presented in individual volumes for:

  • Numbers 0 through 10
    (Domain: Counting and Cardinality)
  • Adding and Subtracting
    (Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking)
  • Big or Small, Short or Tall?
    (Domain: Geometry)
  • All About Shapes
    (Domain: Geometry)

with

  • Numbers Past 10
    (Domain: Number & Operations in Base Ten) added in K2

The volumes are purposely not numbered to allow the teacher to decide the order of topics. The organization of volumes according to CCSS domains provides great flexibility.

Practice Book

Each lesson is accompanied by extended in-class activities that children can complete independently or as homework. The easy-to-follow and fun practices enhance the concepts learned during the lesson and allow children to explore new ideas at their own pace.

The Practice Book covers all the CCSS domains and contains two pages of additional practice per lesson.

Teacher Guide

The spiral-bound Teacher Guide provides a wealth of background and support information to ensure success in the classroom

Key features include:

Planners (Unit Plan and Lesson Plan); Chapter Support in the form of the Chapter Introduction; CCSS Guidance; list of suggestions for linking Math concepts and reading; School-Home Connection letter; Instructions for New Words; The Vocabulary In Use Cards; and further links to Math and Reading through the Math Story

The wrap-around Teacher Guidance for each lesson includes:

Lesson Plan, with the CCSS-based objectives, materials list for the lesson, and vocabulary words; Concept Goals for what children should be able to do after the lesson; and
Instructions for Introducing and Elaborating on the lesson concept.

Unique to Alpha K Math is the inclusion of Active Involvement, activities that reinforce the lesson connecpt through some type of movement or engagement for children, and instruction for supporting English Language Learners.
