Educators Love Math Shelf
With Math Shelf our students have a strong knowledge of math number sense crucial for the foundation to build all future math skills upon. My 4 year old daughter used Math Shelf for 7 months - always begging to play. Now she is doing double digit addition. If there was ever an early learning math program that is a must for any district to carry, it's Math Shelf.
Teachers and principals in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis love Math Shelf! We've been using the program for 5 years and every year our principals and teachers are eager to renew.
Our teachers and students are delighted with Math Shelf. It's an incredible early math learning program.
Mia can add and subtract, she knows all shapes (even trapezoids), and can count in the hundreds. And all of that effortless thanks to Math Shelf! My daughter is more than prepared for first grade math.
