*Some of you have asked me about how my math curriculum works, so I have been taking some time to organize my math posts in a more orderly manner. Because of this, I will be re-posting some older math posts, but I will be combining them into more step-by-step themes. I hope this will help some of you looking for more structure. For others, I appreciate your putting up with a bunch of re-posts.*

*Thanks!*

*Here is the basic order in which I do math...*

**Pre K-2nd Grade**: (Math Their Way) I do this list of activities in this basic order, spiraling around each of these four years. I stop each area when the activities seem to hard for them, because I know I will be getting back to them the following year, or when they seem to have mastered the content of that area. I will be adding links when I finish with each area's post.
