Math – Spectrum PreK Math – Online

\$0.00

First comes info on the course.
Second is the Assessment. Each ? starts with 5*****

Course info and Assessment questions are interspersed below.

First, you will need the Pre-K Math: Spectrum Hands-On Math – PK \$14.99

Second, you will need to prepare the manipulatives by cutting them out and putting them in envelopes according to type. This is a job for Mom or Dad or both, NOT the student.

Third, be aware that we have augmented this course with video classes and a Card Games which are NOT part of the Spectrum PreK Math.

Fourth, consult the PDF for the Lesson schedule and be prepared ahead for what is needed.

Course Content: Students advance when they master a concept.
