Teacher: Allison Walton

Age 4-6:

NO MATERIAL FEES!

Class Fees:

Winter: 10 weeks: $285 or $275 if taking 2 or more classes

Spring: 10 weeks: $285 or $275 if taking 2 or more classes

Fall: Numbers and Number Sense, graphing.

Math Adventures is math for the youngest learners. We will encourage the students to teach and learn math through HANDS ON and engaging math activities in small groups and with partners. We will take a spiral approach, so we won't learn the concept and then leave it behind. In the fall, we will concentrate on the concepts of Numbers and Number Sense, as well as graphing. We will concentrate on reading and writing numbers accurately, exploring the concepts of greater than and less than, and ordering numbers from 0-20. We will create graphs each week, exploring the different kinds of information you can read on a graph, and which graph best suits the need of the information.

Winter: Capacity and Measurement, money.

Math Adventures is math for the youngest learners. We will encourage the students to teach and learn math through hands-on and engaging math activities in small groups and with partners. In the winter, we will continue reinforcing the concepts from the fall, and also concentrating specifically on capacity and measurement. We will decide which containers would hold the least amount of water and which would hold the most, and estimate how many smaller containers would fit in a larger container. We will also explore measurement in our classroom and outside, and explore how modern-day standardization of measurement has increased accuracy!

Spring: Numbers and Number Sense, Telling Time, Addition and Subtraction

Math Adventures is math for the youngest learners. We will encourage the students to teach and learn math through hands-on and engaging math activities in small groups and with partners. In the spring, we will again focus on number sense, by reviewing numbers through 20 and work on counting on by jumping up and down a huge number line! We will also work on telling time on analog clocks on the hour, and work on basic addition and subtraction up to 10.
