Kindergarten math is meant to be active and fun. Learning outside is engaging, naturally hands-on and uses multiple senses. Using the natural environment as the basis for your curriculum makes concepts more concrete and increases children’s attention spans.
The curriculum is organized around units and skills typically covered in kindergarten math. Activities for how to learn and practice each topic outdoors are then provided for each unit. Each unit also includes a list of my favorite math books and games at the end of each chapter. Books and games are great outside in warm weather and inside during extreme weather or dark winter evenings. The math skills described here have been compiled using several different math curriculums and represent what is typically taught in kindergarten in the United States. A suggested unit pacing guide, sample week plan, and planning sheet are included in the resource section.
This math guide is full of ideas and color photos of how to use what is naturally abundant in your area to learn math! Use pinecones, rocks or seashells for sorting and counting! Make mudpies to practice math vocabulary, addition facts, and 3-D shapes. Practice writing numbers in the snow or sand! Use bundles of sticks to learn place value!
Suggested materials and gear for learning outside are included. As well as tips for families learning math outside in more urban areas.
