Kindergarten Math

### Our Journey Begins

In Kindergarten, your child will focus primarily on two important areas. The first is learning numbers and what numbers represent. The second is addition and subtraction. Students will also learn to identify and work with shapes. Activities in these areas include:

Counting how many objects are 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

* Adding and subtracting very small numbers quickly and accurately

* Breaking up numbers less than or equal to 10 in more than one way
(for example, 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

### The math topics that students will be studying are broken down into MODULES. Modules are similar to units of study around a general topic. Each modules contains LESSONS; these lessons study the specific skills students need to know. Each lesson builds on previous knowledge learned throughout past lessons. Below you will find the MODULES we will study in Kindergarten. There are six modules for Kindergarten that focus on the following:

Module 1:  Numbers to 10

Module 2:  Two-Dimensional and Three Dimensional Shapes

Module 3:  Comparison of Length, Weight, Capacity and Numbers to 10

Module 4:  Number pairs, Addition and Subtraction to 10

Module 5:  Numbers 10-20 and Counting to 100

Module 6:  Analyzing, Comparing, and Composing Shapes
