Kindergarten Zearn is designed for our youngest Zearners to build number sense through short activities.
When students move from Zearn K to 1st Grade Zearn Math, we recommend starting a group of kids on our 1st Grade curriculum at the same time. The main reason for this is that in 1st grade, our curriculum has two parts: Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Instruction, and they are designed to be implemented in a rotational model. We recommend that a group of students make this shift at the same time. For students who have already completed all K activities, we recommend repeating portions of the K sequence to help strengthen their number sense as the class prepares to make the transition together.
Another factor to consider in the transition from Kindergarten to 1st Grade Independent Digital Lessons is that our 1st Grade Independent Digital Lessons have reading prompts designed for 1st Grade comprehension and written Student Notes; this may be difficult for K scholars.
If you'd like your students to move to 1st Grade lessons when they complete Kindergarten activities, you can enable auto-advance with these four steps:
- Navigate to the Classes tab when logged into Zearn
- Click Setting Lessons
- Opening Advanced Settings
- Enable the option to progress students to 1st Grade
