The Math K5 Teacher’s Edition, 4th ed. provides instruction for the use of manipulatives to introduce each new math concept for a hands-on approach to learning. Through practice and interactive questioning by the teacher, the student gradually progresses to an abstract level in which he uses only numbers. Core-math concepts are reviewed periodically for retention and reinforcement. Daily classroom review provides a 5-10 minute practice of a previously learned skill. Chapter reviews along with cumulative reviews and section reviews provide additional opportunities for review.
The Teacher’s Toolkit CD that comes packaged with the Teacher’s Edition includes instructional aids, full-color charts for individual- or small-group practice, 1-2-3 Write pages and Math Board suggestions for the practice and review of concepts, and Extended Activities for stretching the student’s application level.
