Developing Roots

Kindergarten “Developing Roots” Math Program
This year we adopted a new Kindergarten math program. Developing Roots is an innovative program designed to bring a foundation in Singapore math to Kindergarten students through child-centered experiences grounded in current research in learning and teaching.  
To support distance learning with the program, the author of the program has designed a series of terrific videos as well as interactive and hands-on learning activities which our teachers are using to help teach our students the concepts of geometry and operations with numbers. 
Many thanks to all of our Kindergarten teachers as well as our Math Support teachers, Ms. Liberman and Ms. Giorgianni, for providing these experiences for our students.
As the photos show, the students are very engaged in their math learning.
