Description of Math Lessons A:

After teaching the daily lesson, refer to Part II's Workbook Answer Key for additional teaching tips. Each Math Workbook A assignment begins with Scripture plus a spiritual and math application.

These Level A lessons are in both the Math Kit A (004HS) and Math Kit B (005HS). Every beginning math student should complete Level A before starting Level B:1.

FOUNDATION DAYS 1-10 introduce the animal number families of the Christ-Centered Math Flashcards 1-10 Set which lays a foundation for the godly character training taught in Levels A-C.

The second set of ten lessons introduces addition concepts 1-10 through the ten animal number families---one lesson per family. The 55 animal babies are in Part II of the Math Master Guide (Part 500). Each animal on Math Flashcards 1-10 has the same number of babies as its numeral. Their lessons are divided as follows:

  • DAILY MATH DRILL: Students learn to count by 1’s using the 0-100 Numbers Chart. Gradually, they also learn a simple drill for all the animal babies.
  • NUMBER CONCEPTS: This section helps students put meaning (value) to numbers as they learn concepts like “2+1 is another name for 3.” This is reinforced through the 0-10 Animal Number Line plus these hands-on teaching aids: Place Value Pocket Chart (Part 520.1) and Snap Cubes (Part 520.2).
  • BASIC SKILLS: This section teaches Before/After, Greater Than/Less Than, and Missing Numbers in Sequence.
  • DAILY SEATWORK: The Math Workbook A assignment is listed at the end of each lesson along with pacing suggestions. Also included is a “WRITING NUMERALS” assignment which recommends singing the “Writing Numbers With Song” (Appendix A).

For the BEST RESULTS ...
Order the Math Beginner's Kit A (004HS) for an Advanced 3 or Young 4; later, order Math Add-On Kit B (Part 005AO). For Advanced 4, K5, or Beginning 1st, purchase Math Kit B (005HS) which includes both Levels A and B.

In addition to Math Lessons A, you need:

  • Christ-Centered Math Master Guide (Part 500)
  • Christ-Centered Animal Stories CD (Part 501)
  • Christ-Centered Math Workbook: Level A (Part 503)

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.


  • Teach an Advanced 3 or Young 4 according to a pace that best fits God-given capabilities. Especially look for daily opportunities to develop the godly character qualities of the Animal Families represented on Math Flashcards 1-10.
  • An Advanced K4, K5, or Beginning 1st grader can usually complete Math Levels A and B:1 in a typical school year---and some K5/B1st students can also finish Level B:2.
  • More Advanced K5/B1st students have been known to finish Levels A, B, and C in a year, or shortly thereafter. For the best results, teach in sequence according to whatever pacing lovingly challenges your student's God-given capabilities.
