Looking to continue on in our move forward I recently shared with KindergartenWorks readers about building my kinders skills in math, especially with these standards:
- K.OA.5.a. Add fluently, orally or in writing, within 5.
- K.OA.5.b. Subtract fluently, orally or in writing, within 5.
You may not want to use these as a typical timed tests in your classroom, but give 'em a dollar tree timer and photocopy these onto overheads and place them into a center. Independent work just feels fun when you're allowed to use a vis-a-vis marker!
You'll notice that the first download has a parent explanation sheet. Yet each one has a parent note that I am copying on the back for parent help. I've learned that helping teach parents the same strategies has been as important as teaching the kinders. The last few tests increase in number of equations to help build their stamina. If you grab one or pin this, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Share a comment below!
