September Interactive Math Notebook Kindergarten

Do your students need practice and review of Kindergarten Math skills? 

Do you want to change up your lessons with interactive math materials? 


These interactive notebook activities are intended to help students understand how to decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, write numbers from 0 to 20, understand the relationships between numbers and quantities, count “how many?”, identify whether the number of objects is greater than, less than, or equal to, and compare two numbers between 1 and 10.

Cutting out the manipulatives. High Quality Clipart Images.

Gluing into their notebooks with precision.

Students take ownership of their work. 


 Reviewing key skills and demonstrating mastery with review.


✔Common Core State Standards Covered:
CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.3Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.3Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.5Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.C.6Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.1
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.C.7Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.

Student Work and Math Goals NO PREP Bulletin Board

Do you set Math Goals for your students to achieve?

Do you display student work that demonstrates hard work?

Do you want your students to achieve more?

Did you know that setting goals for your students increases their motivation?
"Giving people specific goals to achieve rather than telling them to do  their best increases their motivation." -Harvard
You can inspire your students with their own work displayed, and set goals for working hard toward achieving future goals.


This packet contains NO PREP Bulletin Board materials for you to display in your classroom or hallway at school that promote the Mathematical Mindset theme with the words "#Math Goals" and graphics that promote student work being displayed.

Included in this packet are:
-Examples of Bulletin Boards
-Pennant Style "#Math Goals" Sign
-3 different Versions of the Student Work Coming Soon Signs {plain, arrows, and dots}
-9 different Colors of the Student Work Coming Soon Signs {white, black, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink}
-HIGH QUALITY graphics are included


Remember that goal setting is important at the beginning of the school year. Set the tone for achievement HIGH and your students will soar! Make sure to give them opportunities for being successful and displaying their hard work when it is appropriate. These are keys to developing a Mathematical Mindset and growing your students in becoming high achievers!

Happy Teaching!

This can be a quick and easy tool for your classroom to setup a communications system with all your parents. Let them know in the syllabus or by email how often you will reply to an email (example: Mrs. McCown will respond within 24 to 48 hours to any email or telephone call). Parents will be glad to know you have open communication with them and that they can build a relationship with the teacher to meet the needs of their student.
