New Canadian Edition

JUMP Math has begun a major project to create new editions of our Grade 1-8 resources and to add a Kindergarten offering for the first time. Grade 3, Kindergarten, and Grades 1 and 2 are all available now. Expanded editions of the 2009 Edition TRs for Grades 4 to 8 are also available now, until major revisions of those grades are released.

Kindergarten

JUMP Math has combined the wisdom of classroom kindergarten teachers with the knowledge of our specialist math writers to create a state of the art kindergarten math program! Our new Canadian Kindergarten resources for teachers and students are available to order now for the 2017-2018 school year.

Key features include: 

  • Lesson design that encompasses the broad developmental range in kindergarten 
  • Careful scaffolding of material, continuous assessment of student learning, and bonus questions and extensions throughout
  • Detailed, flexible lesson plans that include whole-class instruction and activities, as well as a variety of activity centres for easy differentiation
  • The introductory unit includes games and activities designed to teach pre-math skills while easing the transition to school
  • Simple, clear language in the student Assessment & Practice Books, that can be read by the teacher or by early readers
  • Assessment checklists with “look-fors” for formative assessment and suggested activities for summative assessment
  • A table of contents that shows which lessons to teach to cover the curriculum requirements for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Ontario

Sample lessons of our Canadian Edition Kindergarten program are available here.
