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

Geometry

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.
