For each page, there is a grade level standard attached so you know EXACTLY what you are covering! You can feel confident that ALL the standards for Kindergarten are being covered!
HOW DO I ORGANIZE THE UNITS?
I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie.
