The Math Mentors Activity Log is based on the Common Core Standards for Kindergarten. The kindergarten students are mentored oneonone by students in an upper grade (for example, 4th). The Mentors will have a folder that contains activities/worksheets for that day and an Activity and Game Log to document what was worked on during the day's session. The mentor should check off each activity completed and write down what games were played during the session on the Activity and Game Log. At the end of each session the students will earn a sticker for completing work to be placed in the PBS Superstar Sticker column. All worksheets and games will go home with the kindergarten students each day.
These activities can be adapted according to teacher curriculum standards and to best meet classroom needs.
