The Early Math Teacher’s Guide Is Here!

Our Early Math Teacher’s Guide is now available!

Guide Homepage

We are thankful to our teachers and researchers for helping us develop the web-based guide and curriculum supplement that provides support for the Gracie & Friends iPad apps (now available in the Apple App Store).

The free guide includes 3-week curriculum sequences for two math units: subitizing and equipartitioning. It shares pictures of real teachers in the classroom using each of the activities, including digital and hands-on games and activities, books, songs, snacks, and outdoor play! 

Not familiar with subitizing and equipartitioning? The Early Math Teacher’s Guide helps to understand the math as well as how to teach it. More professional development videos and topics coming over the next few months.

We are thrilled to share this guide and look forward to hearing how you use it!

Gracie & Friends Lemonade Stand in the Apple App Store!

With the launch of four apps focused on subitizing (instantly recognizing how many there are of something), Gracie and Friends is proud to announce the first of four apps that help preschoolers develop their skills in equipartitioning! Equipartitioning is equal sharing a collection of objects or a whole object by dividing it into equal groups or portions.

Lemonade Stand, now released and available for download through the Apple App Store, invites children to create equivalent cups of lemonade for customers in 20 increasingly tricky levels of gameplay. They slide ice cubes around a table and into cups by tipping and tilting the iPad! Every cup needs the same number of ice cubes, but not any lady bugs! Can you make similar servings at your Lemonade Stand? Try it out and see!
