GV Kindergarten utilizes several resources to develop a hand on, engaging math program for our learners. Please see below for more information on the resouces we use.
We are building children's mathematical thinking through Number Talks, Centers and whole group instruction.
Children use manipulatives to build their math knowledge at the concrete level and then the pictorial level to finally the abstract level using numbers to solve problems.GVSD is using a common core aligned curriculum this year and a math series called, Math in Focus. We are all very excited about this program. It has many wonderful components.
