Preschool and Kindergarten Math - Meeting the Curriculum Outcomes
The resources provided on the site focus on meeting the curriculum outcomes for kindergarten in the language, as well as, the math areas. These lesson plans can be easily adjusted for the preschool learner. If the "Alphabet Program" were followed the majority of the kindergarten curriculum in language arts and math would be met.

Preschool and Kindergarten Math - Outcome for Sorting
Have the children sort the bears using one or more attributes. These could be size, color, clothes or no clothes.
Read "Teddy Bears' Picnic" by Jimmy Kennedy. Choose a page with a number of bears. Have the children estimate how many there might be. Count the bears to see how close their estimations were.
Preschool and Kindergarten Math - Outcome for Patterning and Relations
The story below called Teddy Bear Pattern Story can be used to introduce patterning. The story makes use of word patterning. The words teddy bear, teddy bear with a.....is a repeated word pattern. Find other stories that follow a repeated word pattern.
The teddy bear templates below can be used to demonstrate how to make a picture pattern. After, the children can cut the bears and glue them onto a strip of construction paper to make their own teddy bear pattern. The blank bear templates can be used for the children to develop their own pattern (could be color or a special design that they have created on the bear). The number cards in the link on this page, could be used to create a number pattern. The possibilities are endless. Example: The pattern in the photograph on the right was created by using the bear number cards. The pattern being 3, 3, 2 and 3, 3, 2 OR the one below which is upright, upside down, upright, upside down.
Patterning Using Gummi Bears
Gummi bears can be purchased and the children can use these to make a pattern.
Preschool and Kindergarten Math - Outcome for Number Sense
In these activities the children will relate a numeral to its respective quantity and compare quantities using one-to-one correspondence.
The children will place the correct amount of smaller bears (found at the end of the templates) or gummi bears. They could also place the numbers in the correct sequence order.
Preschool and Kindergarten Math - Preschool and Kindergarten Lesson Plan on Shapes
After discussing characteristics of 2-D shapes, the following activity could be completed. This project can be completed in a number of ways. The one in the photograph was completed by coloring parts of the bear and painting the rest. The shapes were copied on different colors of paper and cut. These shapes were glued on the dotted shape bear to match. In the links below you will find the shape bear templates and the shapes that can be glued onto the bear. Photograph of the project shown below.

Preschool and Kindergarten Math - Preschool and Kindergarten Lesson Plan on Measurement
The children can sort the bears from the smallest to largest from the links below. After, they can choose a bear template and guess how many snap cubes tall it is. After, they would use the snap cubes to find other objects in the room that are the same size as the bear templates.
Preschool-Kindergarten Math - Helping to Meet the Curriculum
We have developed a new math program which covers the math strands found within the different Kindergarten math curriculums (across the different school jurisdictions). The video on the left previews a few activities and games found in the "Number Sense" strand. You will see our continued effort to integrate literacy within all level of the curriculum.
Note: Numbers to 20 are introduced in the program to address the different school jurisdictions curriculum outcomes.
