We started using The Good and the Beautiful Math K about six months ago. I wish I had started my kindergartner with this math, but I didn’t because it wasn’t yet released when I purchased curriculum. After dealing with a few months of pulling teeth trying to get my little guy to do school, I switched to The Good and the Beautiful homeschool curriculum and haven’t looked back. This is his favorite subject! Today I am going to give you an overview of The Good and the Beautiful Level K Math and show you my simple method for organizing it!
What is included in The Good and the Beautiful Level K Math?
You will receive two course books and you can also order the math activity box. The math activity box is an integral part of the course curriculum, so I highly recommend you invest in purchasing it. The items in the math activity box are high quality and will last through multiple children if you take care of them. You will also have access to an answer key and MP3s of songs used in the course. There is an option to purchase the PDFs of the course book and also a PDF of the flat materials in the math activity box. The entire physical math course set is currently $108.97.
What does The Good and the Beautiful Level K Math cover?
Unlike the language arts program, the math program is right on grade level. A child with little math experience could begin Math K and be totally fine. Here is what your child will learn:
- Learn numbers from 0-20
Number Sense and Operations
- Count up to 20 objects
- Count up to 100
- Patterns in nature
- Learn several patterns and continue them
- Shapes, positional words, etc.
Measurement: Time, length, money, graphing
Learn and memorize one phone number
I highly recommend you visit The Good and the Beautiful’s website and download the Math K sample pages to see the full scope of what is covered in this course.
How to organize The Good and the Beautiful Level K Math activity box
I’ve seen a lot of mamas do really creative things with the activity box. Some store everything in a latchmate bin like I did for our spelling box. I am of the mindset to use what I have, so we keep all of our supplies in the original box. I did purchase an organizer from The Dollar Tree that fits well in the box. I use it to store the wooden cubes, our pennies, dice, and small manipulatives in the original baggies. I also keep our toothpicks in here.
Inside the box I place a ruler and dry erase marker, the ten frame cards, the calendar, the rekenrek, place value chart, handwriting card, and part-part-whole mat. I keep the pattern blocks and cards in a large ziplock bag, and I keep the number and shape cards in a small ziplock bag.
How we do The Good and the Beautiful Level K Math
We do the curriculum exactly as written. I make sure we always do the daily dose and then we move into the lesson. We spend about 20 minutes total on math everyday. My son loves this curriculum and I’m excited to see how he progresses with it!
