KENS Flash Cards Teach
Number Combinations
Show Cards
In the
Classroom
• Use markers to fill in
circle number line on
laminated cards
• Visualize a number line
• Use foamies to represent
the number combination
on the card
• Each level builds on prior
learning

Show & Tell Cards
Show Cards
• Students represent math
concepts on paper and with
physical objects
Tell Cards
• Reinforce quick recall of
math concepts and math facts

Brain research strongly suggests
that we have an innate sense of
number that includes a mental
number line.

Geary, Bailey & Hoard
(2009) demonstrate that
the ability to show a
number on a number line
was the best predictor of
math achievement in 3rd
grade.

Student number lines for
individual student use
In the
Classroom
• Use wooden number lines
with or without paper
number line
• Kit includes paper number
lines with and without
numbers
• Paper number lines
increase in difficulty as
students progress –
10’s, 20’s, etc.

Math Games Reinforce Number
Sense
• Research shows math
achievement correlates
to the number of board games
a child plays
• Research-based math games
are designed to
sequentially
build number
sense
• More than 20 math games in
KENS Math – instructions,
printables & game pieces
• Ideal for free time, centers or
sending home

Diagnostic & Prescriptive
• Assessment – provides tools to pre-assess
number sense skill
• Monitoring – assess and chart progress at
each level
• Leveled Learning - is designed for
individualized, leveled instruction
• Diverse Learners - addresses the needs of
diverse learners
• Flexibility – supports a variety of teaching styles
& learning environments

KENS Math Assessment
In the
Classroom
• Assess each student
individually
• Ask “How many dots in
each row?”
• Give each student an
average of 30 seconds to
do the test
• Complete 10 rows of dots

KENS Math Assessment
Test helps teachers:
1) Assess number sense skills
2) Determine the ideal starting level for each
student
3) Identify which students require increased
number sense practice & skill building
4) Assess progress in the program
Action research in the classroom showed:
•
•
Errors on the assessment predicted 90% of students who had
difficulties with calculation fluency.
One year later, students who made more than 1 error were not on
target at the end of first grade.

Monitoring
• KENS Math facilitates math
interventions and ongoing
progress monitoring
• 3 basic steps to using KENS
Math as an Response to
Intervention (RTI) program:
– Establish baseline levels
– Design the intervention & set
learning goals
– Monitor progress

Leveled Learning
The KENS Math program supports the 3 core
number sense skills with:
1. Step-by-step, lesson plans for each level 1-12
2. Leveled Go, Show & Tell Cards 1-12
3. Manipulatives that support each
of the number sense practices
4. Printable worksheets, games,
math mats & more!
