## Off to a great start with Christ-Centered Math!

### Recommended For:

- Older 3's (AK3)
- Young 4's (K4)

The Math Beginner's Kit A is great for teaching young 4's and older 3's a couple of days per week.

**Notice to Math Edition 1 Users:** If you own the original *Math Lessons Guide A* and *Math Lessons Guide B*, the Home School workbooks (Levels A, B:1, B:2, and C) are *not compatible*. To purchase the original *Math Workbook A*, **order Part 401**. For Level B, **order Part 403**.

### SPECIAL NOTICE ...

For older K4's, K5's, or Beginning 1st math students, order Math Kit B (Part 005HS) which includes Level A items plus Levels B:1 and B:2.

NOTE: Every beginning math student should complete Level A before Level B:1.

## Christ-Centered Math Is Uniquely Scriptural!

Christ-Centered Math derives its teaching content from
mathematical truths rooted in Scripture. For example, the first thing God did in Creation week was to *add* something to the
nothing that existed---the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). Because addition is the basis of all other mathematical operations, the Level A lessons begin by introducing addition concepts 1-10. Since our Creator also *counted* when He numbered the days of the week, as Math Workbook A students learn number concepts 1-10 ("how many," number identification, and number recall), they will count pictures of some things God made during Creation week.

### Christ-Centered Math Builds Godly Character!

Math lessons A, B, and C include CHARACTER TRAINING TIPS
related to the animal families of
the Christ-Centered Math Flashcards 1-10 Set which is included in the Math Master Guide (Part 500). In addition, through interesting stories plus Scripture songs and hymns on the
Animal Stories CD (Part 501), children are encouraged to ask Jesus to develop the following godly traits in *them* as well:

- ONE Penguin–
**Generosity**
- TWO Deer–
**Flexibility**
- THREE Bear–
**Loyalty**
- FOUR Beaver–
**Orderliness**
- FIVE Skunk–
**Courage**
- SIX Badger–
**Decisiveness**
- SEVEN Chickadee–
**Joyfulness**
- EIGHT Crow–
**Responsibility**
- NINE Squirrel–
**Endurance**
- TEN Moth–
**Determination**

**Note:** The story illustrations and character quality definitions were adapted from
*Character Sketches Vol. I and II* (used by permission from the Institute in Basic
Life Principles).

## Skills Covered at Math Level A:

- Godly Character Qualities 1-10
- Number Concepts 1-10
- Introduction to Addition Families 1-10
- Number Line 0-10
- Before and After 0-10
- Missing Numbers in Sequence 0-10
- Greater Than/Less Than 0-10
- Counting by 1's to 100
- Tracing/Writing Numerals 1-10

**Note:** Some *Alphabet & Numbers Tracing Sheets* are included in Math Kit A at no charge for **a limited time only**. Although these tracing sheets may be reproduced, for repeated use we suggest laminating each page (or inserting in a plastic report cover). For writing practice, we recommend using a dry erase marker or washable overhead transparency pen since either one wipes off well.

### NOTICE ...

If you purchase Math Kit A, when ready for Level B, you only need to order Math Add-On Kit B (Part 005AO).

### Math Kit A includes the following:

**Christ-Centered Math Foundation Materials:**

- Christ-Centered Math Master Guide (Part 500). This 3-ring binder includes teaching tips for Math Levels A, B, and C plus the visual aids used for all three Levels.
- Christ-Centered Animal Stories with Scripture Songs and Hymns CD (Part 501)

**Math Hands-On Teaching Aids**: Math Lessons A, B:1, and C use a Place Value Pocket Chart (Part 520.1) and Snap Cubes (Part 520.2) to give meaning (value) to numbers. **Both are included in Math Kits A and B.**

**Lessons/Answer Key/Workbook:**

*Christ-Centered Math Lessons: Level A*---Workbook Answer Key Included (Part 502)
*Christ-Centered Math Workbook: Level A* (Part 503)

### Pacing Suggestions:

For the best results, teach in sequence according to a pace that best fits
your child’s God-given capabilities.
