Most Kindergarten Math lesson plans should incorporate a variety of hands-on materials for the students to use and therefore visualize.

These forms are used to record your student's progress and will help you to write proper reports at the end of each term. This is a valuable tool and should be used daily, especially if you have several students and can’t remember every child’s progress.
The Observation Forms Will Contain The Following:
Kindergarten Math lesson plans will also require the use of learning posters such as numeral charts, demonstration dot cards, numeral cards, number lines, grid sheets, how to tell time clocks and calendars. If you are a homeschooling teacher, you will soon realize that you will quickly need more of these posters than originally thought. Kids tend to get bored easily and need a variety to keep focused. Just keep in mind that kindergartners love pictures and math is just easier to learn and be taught by this method.
Math journals are also very powerful tools and the kids can basically do
anything with them as long as it reflects how they feel about math and what they
understand or don’t understand. You can use these journals to see exactly how
your child feels so make sure that they know how to use them.
There are some really effective kindergarten math lesson plans available on the internet or at your local library or bookstore.
