Kindergarten Math Resources

In Kindergarten, instructional time should focus on two critical areas: (1) representing and comparing whole numbers, initially with sets of objects; (2) describing shapes and space. More learning time in Kindergarten should be devoted to number than to other topics.

Counting and Cardinality
  • Know number names and the count sequence.
  • Count to tell the number of objects.
  • Compare numbers.

Operations and Algebraic Thinking
  • Understands addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking form.

Number and Operations in Base Ten
  • Work with numbers 11-19 to gain foundation for place value

Measurement and Data
  • Describe and compare measurable attributes.
  • Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category

  • Identify and describe shapes.
  • Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes.

Mathematical Practices
  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
  • Reasons abstractly and quantitatively.
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  • Model with mathematics.
  • Use appropriate tools strategically.
  • Attend to precision.
  • Look for and make use of structure.
  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
