Mathematics

Kearsley offers our K-5 students Bridges into Mathematics.  This curriculum offers hands on manipulatives with guidance from the teacher.  Teachers instruct through Number Corner, small and whole group lessons, conferring with students one on one, and through learning games.  These lessons focus on building numeracy skills and problem solving skills.  This curriculum offers interventions that relate directly to the curriculum.
