The Common Core Standards are used to guide what our children need to learn in Math.  In Kindergarten this includes Counting/Cardinality, Operations/Algebraic Thinking, Base Ten Operations, Measurement and Data, and Geometry.

In kindergarten, activities that your child will participate in to help them understand these areas include:

•Counting how many objects in a group and comparing the quantities of two groups of objects
•Comparing two numbers to identify which is greater or less than the other
•Understanding addition as putting together and subtraction as taking away from
•Adding and subtracting very small numbers quickly and accurately
•Breaking up numbers less than or equal to 10 in more than one way (9=6+3, 9=5+4)
•For any number from 1 to 9, finding the missing quantity that is needed to reach 10
•Representing addition and subtraction word problems using objects or by drawing pictures
•Solving addition and subtraction word problems involving numbers that add up to 10 or less or by subtracting from a number 10 or less
