JK / Kindergarten Math

In junior kindergarten and kindergarten, our instruction focuses on the following critical areas:

  1. Developing an understanding of whole numbers to 10, including concepts of one-to-one correspondence, counting, cardinality (the number of items in a set), and comparison
  2. Recognizing two-dimensional shapes, describing spatial relationships, and sorting and classifying objects by one or more attributes
  3. Representing, relating, and operating on whole numbers, initially with sets of objects
  4. Describing shapes and space

By the end of junior kindergarten, students will:

  • Recognize and name written numerals 0-10
  • Count many kinds of concrete objects and actions up to 10
  • Use concrete objects to model real-world addition and subtraction problems up through five

By the end of kindergarten, students will:

  • Count to 100 by ones and by tens
  • Count on from a given number
  • Write numbers 0-20
  • Fluently add and subtract within 5
  • Know combinations of 1 to 9 that make 10
  • Compose and decompose numbers 11-19 into tens and some ones
