CCSS Pre-K: Unit


Put yourself in the mind of a 4- or 5- year old. Skills like counting, recognizing numerals, 2-D and 3-D shapes and sizes, and matching quantities may seem straightforward to us, but are quite cognitively complex for a preschooler. TouchMath eliminates anxiety and makes math fun and relatable, paving the way for future academic success. Every critical pre-K topic that prepares your students for the kindergarten Common Core State Standards is right here in one unit with six conveniently-labeled modules, plus a manipulative set of 108 shapes and sizes designed to coordinate with the activity pages. Just pick and choose anything you need, make copies, and tuck the master back in the file for next time. It’s one convenient box with endless possibilities.

Module Details:

  • Module 1: Counting and Number Sense
  • This module focuses on Counting and Number Sense. It introduces the concept of one-to-one correspondence as it relates to counting from 1 to 5 and as it relates to comparing and constructing sets with 1–5 objects. Activities progress from placing objects on pictures while counting, to coloring, ringing, and making an X. The students are encouraged to find opportunities to count throughout the day. The last two pages of this module introduce the concept of ordinal numbers and positions from first to fifth.
  • Module 2: Comparing and Classifying
  • This module focuses on Comparing and Classifying. Being able to classify and compare objects is an important starting point for young learners as they begin to develop key mathematical thinking skills. The suggested Pre-Activities and Workmats in this module deal specifically with the concepts of comparing the length and size of two objects, comparing two objects for relative position, and classifying objects by category. The students are encouraged to explore attributes that are alike and not alike in a variety of ways.
  • Module 3: Sorting, Classifying, Graphing, and Patterning
  • This module focuses on Sorting, Classifying, Graphing, and Patterning. It extends the skills from Module 2 by introducing the concept of graphing the results of sorting and classifying in order to compare information. The Suggested Pre-Activities and first set of Workmats provide simple graphing activities that give young students the opportunity to collect data and organize it in a variety of ways. The second set of Workmats and Suggested Pre-Activities introduce the concept of patterns. Understanding and creating patterns helps young students begin to see order in their world. These Workmats provide ample practice with AB, AAB, and ABB patterns.
  • Module 4: Identifying, Sorting, and Classifying 2-D Shapes
  • This module focuses on Identifying, Sorting, and Classifying 2-D Shapes. The sorting and classifying activities extend the learning of Modules 2 and 3. The six featured shapes are circle, square, triangle, rectangle, rhombus, and hexagon. The Suggested Pre-Activities and Workmats offer students multiple means of practice naming, describing, analyzing, constructing, and categorizing these shapes. Additionally, opportunities to find these shapes in the world around them are provided. The Pre-Activities use music, movement, arts and crafts, games, and stories to make learning about shapes engaging and fun.
  • Module 5: Identifying, Sorting, and Classifying 3-D Shapes and Coins
  • This module focuses on Identifying, Sorting, and Classifying 3-D Shapes and Coins. The four featured shapes are sphere (ball), cube (box), cone, and cylinder. The Suggested Pre-Activities use music, movement, arts and crafts, and games to make learning engaging and fun. The first group of Workmats offers students ample practice naming, describing, analyzing, and categorizing the shapes, plus opportunities to find them in the everyday world. The second group of Workmats connects 3-D shapes to the real world by introducing pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters as cylinders.
  • Module 6: Representing Quantities and Numbers
  • This module focuses on Representing Quantities and Numbers. It gives students the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned in the previous modules (one-to-one correspondence, counting and comparing objects, and recognizing numbers) to associating quantities of objects with written numbers. The Suggested Pre-Activities and Workmats offer hands-on practice with multiple representations of numbers.
