Teacher Lesson Materials

Zearn Math provides teachers with all of the materials they need to plan and lead instruction that ensures students deeply learn the math content of their grade. These materials are available in both English and Spanish. Downloadable and printable teacher lesson materials are available on each Mission Page.

Concrete Materials
As students learn new concepts with Zearn Math, they progress from using concrete materials to pictures to abstract symbols, and they are able to move back and forth between each stage to make sure that they understand what they are learning. This gives all learners the chance to construct physical models of abstract math ideas and test and confirm their thinking. You can find a list of recommended concrete materials by grade below. You can also purchase grade-level manipulative kits here.
