By the end of
kindergarten, students understand small numbers, quantities, and
simple shapes in their everyday environment.They count, compare, describe, and sort objects and develop a
sense of properties and patterns.
Students understand the
relationship between numbers and quantities (for example, that a set
of objects has the same number of objects in different situations
regardless of its position or arrangement.)
I can compare two or more groups (sets)
of objects, and I can identify which group has the same number, has
more than, or has less than the other group.
I can read, write, and count numbers
and objects up to 30.I
can also put them in order by number.
I know that larger numbers describe
groups (sets) with more objects in them and that smaller numbers
describe groups with fewer objects in them.
Students understand and describe
simple additions and subtractions.
I use real objects to figure out the
answers to addition and subtraction problems.
Students use estimation
strategies in computation and problem solving that involve numbers
that use the ones and tens place.
I recognize when an estimate makes
ALGEBRA AND FUNCTIONS
Students sort and classify
I can put objects in groups by deciding
the ways they are alike.I
can identify objects that do not belong to a particular group.
Students understand the concept
of time and units of time and how to measure it; they
understand that objects have properties, such as length, weight, and
capacity, and that comparisons may be made by referring to those
I can compare the length, weight, and
how much objects will hold by comparing them with other objects.
I know about time and the meaning of
the following time words and ways to measure time:morning, afternoon, evening, today, yesterday, tomorrow,
week, year, clock, calendar.
I know the names of the days of the
I can tell time to the nearest hour of
everyday events, such as lunchtime is
; bedtime is
Students identify common objects
in their environment and describe the geometric features.
I can name and describe objects such as
circles, triangles, square, rectangles, cubes, spheres, and cones.
and describe flat and solid objects by things they have in common,
such as position, shape, size, roundness, and number of corners.
STATISTICS, DATA ANALYSIS, AND PROBABILITY
Students collect information
about objects and events in their environment.
I ask questions, collect data, and
record the results using objects, pictures, and picture graphs.
I can name, describe, and make longer
patterns by referring to their shapes, sizes, or colors.
Students make decisions about
how to set up a problem.
I can figure out how solve math
problems and what I need to solve them, such as objects or pencil
I can draw my answers or use objects to
solve problems in reasonable ways and justify their reasoning.
I can explain my answers to others
using my drawings or objects.
I can solve problems and check my
answers to make sure that they are right.
