New Canadian Edition

In 2016 JUMP Math undertook a major project to create new editions of our Grade 1-8 resources, starting with Grade 3, and to add a Kindergarten offering for the first time. The new resources for Grade 3, Kindergarten, and Grades 1 and 2 are all available now, and the new resources for Grades 4 and 6 and a French edition of the new student books for Grade 3 will be published for the 2018-2019 school year. Expanded editions of the 2009 Edition Teacher Resources for Grades 5, 7, and 8 are also available now, until major revisions of those grades are released.

Kindergarten

JUMP Math has combined the wisdom of classroom kindergarten teachers with the knowledge of our specialist math writers to create a state of the art kindergarten math program! Our Canadian Kindergarten resources for teachers and students were published in 2017 and are available now.

Key features include: 

  • Lesson design that encompasses the broad developmental range in kindergarten 
  • Careful scaffolding of material, continuous assessment of student learning, and bonus questions and extensions throughout
  • Detailed, flexible lesson plans that include whole-class instruction and activities, as well as a variety of activity centres for easy differentiation
  • The introductory unit includes games and activities designed to teach pre-math skills while easing the transition to school
  • Simple, clear language in the student Assessment & Practice Books, that can be read by the teacher or by early readers
  • Assessment checklists with “look-fors” for formative assessment and suggested activities for summative assessment
  • A table of contents that shows which lessons to teach to cover the curriculum requirements for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Saskatchewan

Sample lessons of our Canadian Edition Kindergarten program are available here.

New Canadian Edition Kindergarten books can be ordered from University of Toronto Press Distribution, using the updated order form which may be downloaded here.
