Learning Upgrade Releases New Math Lessons for Kindergarteners
Learning Upgrade has released a new set of lessons called Math Upgrade Kindergarten. The 50 lessons, each with music, games and video, will be available to schools that take advantage of Learning Upgrade’s complimentary summer school licenses.
Math Upgrade Kindergarten has been designed to support student mastery of both state and national standards, including every Common Core math standard. The lessons give students step-by-step guidance with voice instructions, and practice problems include immediate verbal help and remediation when needed.
The program combines music videos and interactive games with rewards to help students understand math. Students can earn medals for completing each lesson and gold certificates for achieving mastery on every lesson. They can access the program in school or at home on a variety of devices, including laptops and tablets.
Math Upgrade Kindergarten includes assessments with real-time, Web-based reports, so that teachers have enough information to follow up instruction in weak areas.
