Learning One-to-One Correspondence in Kindergarten
In math class, our Kindergarteners get valuable (and fun) practice when working with Unifix puzzles. Using puzzles of various shapes, students create 3-dimensional models and determine the number of cubes that fit in each puzzle. This activity is a great way to practice one-to-one correspondence, a crucial skill that supports students’ growth with numbers and operations.

New Teacher Spotlight!
Kirk Kubicek – Music Teacher
Welcome to our new Music teacher Kirk Kubicek. A Maryland native, Kirk has called Philadelphia home since 2011. Over the past decade, he has worked as a Music Teaching Artist, drumming, playing, and singing with hundreds of students of all ages in a range of settings from classroom percussion, to classical and New Orleans style brass bands, to private drum set lessons, and community drum circles. Kirk continues to play drums professionally for many projects and bands, including his most recent project, The North Country. An avid trail runner, mountain biker, and backpacker, Kirk spends as much time outside in nature as he can with his wife Jamie and his husky-hound Pemi.
