Kindergarten Math Unit 2 is here!
I want kids to know that math is FUN! Therefore, I don’t think we need to “trick” them into thinking that learning math can be fun. On the other hand, providing them with hands-on, engaging and FUN resources will make them WANT to learn math! So I am super excited to share with you Unit 2 of the Kindergarten Math Made Fun Curriculum!

Let’s take a look at the Math Centers for Unit 2 in Action…

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?
First, I tell you exactly what you will need for each unit.
You can conveniently store your units in any type of bin. Though, I like the large Sterilite boxes because they are able to hold all of the centers and don’t take up too much space. Although it might be a tight fit, it all fits inside nicely. However, you could go with a larger box if you have more space.
I like to store each center in a gallon sized baggie.

I hope these math units help to make your math time FUN, hands-on and highly effective!
