doing? Visit the Commonwealth
of Knowledge, the first lady's collection of SOL-based lesson
plans. (This link takes you directly to the list of math lesson
plans, organized by SOL.)
Free Activity Page for Kids: Lots of
activities in math and other areas complete with worksheets. Here
are a few samples linked to appropriate standards.
Vicki and Richard Sharp, California State University, Northridge
have assembled lots of links in various
subject areas. The math
page has lots of place to go for lesson
plans, instructional materials, and online resources. A few highlights
aligned to standards are listed below.
- K.8 The student will add and subtract
whole numbers using up to 10 concrete items: Flashcards
from All Math
- K.13 The student will identify representation
of plane geometric figures (circle, triangle, square, and rectangle),
regardless of their position and orientation in space: Print
Sesame Streets pictures to color. They also have number
coloring pages (K.2).
- K.4 The student will investigate and recognize patterns from
counting by fives and tens, using concrete objects and a calculator:
Base 10 Game that lets you drag shapes onto a grid and then
divide them into groups of five and ten.
Math Cat: The Game
Six games: each one focusses on a different standard:
- K.1 The student, given two sets containing 10 or fewer concrete
items, will identify and describe one set as having more, fewer,
or the same number of members as the other set, using the concept
of 1 to 1 correspondence. Game:
More or Less?
- K.2 The student, viven a set containing
nine or fewer items, will tell how many are in the set by counting
the number of items orally and select the corresponding numberal
from a given set. Game:
- K.7 The student will add and subtract
whole numbers using up to 10 concrete items. Game: Add
- K.9 The student will recognize a penny, nickel, dime, and
quarter. Game: What Coin Is It?
- K.13 The student will identify, describe, and make plane
geometric figures. Games: Name the Shapes and
Name the Shapes
Note: You'll need the Shockwave Plugin to play Math Cat.
