DIG Math
Active, meaningful, and driven by inquiry—that’s DIG’s math instruction for Pre-K learners. As the emphasis on state and national math standards continues to grow, you can extend your mathematics learning now with the help of our DIG Math kit, no matter what existing curriculum you’re using.
Designed to include essential skills-based topics for practice and mastery, DIG Math guides children to deeper thinking and more meaningful learning—and to a love for the hows and whys of mathematics.
DIG Math is designed with:
- Daily math practice in whole group circle time and small groups.
- Learning Centers that support instruction independently.
- Spiraling sequences of instruction and review.
- Active learning approaches for active bodies.
- Engaging materials and manipulatives.
How does it work?
Through repeated exposure to important skills, predictable review routines, and active learning, DIG Math prepares Pre-K students for kindergarten with a carefully constructed sequence of math skills that fits manageably into any existing curriculum.
Daily Math CircleDIG Math’s daily, whole group Math Circle kicks off discussion and practice of each concept with hands- on materials, nonfiction big books, math songs and rhymes, and interactive practice with peers. Special review days lock in learning with repeated practice. |
Theme Anchor ChartsDaily small group lessons model skills up close first, then give children a chance at scaffolded practice. Instruction reinforces varying learning styles and provides opportunities for targeted instruction and guided practice. Suggestions for differentiation are provided with each lesson. |
Learning CentersCenter time gives children a chance to practice newly learned skills on their own. DIG Math provides fresh math center ideas each week for ongoing exploration—all year long! |
Teacher's GuideMath songs and fingerplays are a fun, active way to reinforce and practice foundational skill math concepts. That’s why DIG Math incorporates songs and fingerplays by Dr. Jean every day. |
