Using Wixie to meet math standards in Kindergarten

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Nov 15, 2017 11:26:27 AM

Kindergarten students need to build solid foundations with number sense, learning to represent quantities of objects with numerals and comparing their value. They are also beginning to identify shapes and describing objects in the world using these new terms.

Wixie's Activities library includes over 70 Kindergarten math activities you can use for formative assessment purposes or tasks for student work at centers and in station rotations.

Teachers can assign Wixie activities directly to students, or customize to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Instructions for students show in the Wixie interface and you can also record instructions for your emerging readers.
