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.

NUMBER SENSE

1.0

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.)

 

 

 

1.1

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.  

 

 

 

1.2

I can read, write, and count numbers and objects up to 30.  I can also put them in order by number.         

 

 

 

1.3

I know that larger numbers describe groups (sets) with more objects in them and that smaller numbers describe groups with fewer objects in them.  

 

 

 

2.0

Students understand and describe simple additions and subtractions.  

 

 

 

2.1

I use real objects to figure out the answers to addition and subtraction problems.  

 

 

 

3.0

Students use estimation strategies in computation and problem solving that involve numbers that use the ones and tens place.

 

 

 

3.1

I recognize when an estimate makes sense.  

 

 

 

ALGEBRA AND FUNCTIONS

1.0

Students sort and classify objects.  

 

 

 

1.1

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.  

 

 

 

MEASUREMENT AND GEOMETRY

1.0

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 properties.  

 

 

 

1.1

I can compare the length, weight, and how much objects will hold by comparing them with other objects.  

 

 

 

1.2

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.  

 

 

 

1.3

I know the names of the days of the week.  

 

 

 

1.4

I can tell time to the nearest hour of everyday events, such as lunchtime is 12 o'clock ; bedtime is 8 o'clock .

 

 

 

2.0

Students identify common objects in their environment and describe the geometric features.  

 

 

 

2.1

I can name and describe objects such as circles, triangles, square, rectangles, cubes, spheres, and cones.  

 

 

 

2.2

I can name 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

1.0

Students collect information about objects and events in their environment.  

 

 

 

1.1

I ask questions, collect data, and record the results using objects, pictures, and picture graphs.  

 

 

 

1.2

I can name, describe, and make longer patterns by referring to their shapes, sizes, or colors.  

 

 

 

MATHEMATICAL REASONING

1.0

Students make decisions about how to set up a problem.  

 

 

 

1.1

I can figure out how solve math problems and what I need to solve them, such as objects or pencil and paper.  

 

 

 

1.2

I can draw my answers or use objects to solve them.  

 

 

 

2.0

Students solve problems in reasonable ways and justify their reasoning.  

 

 

 

2.1

I can explain my answers to others using my drawings or objects.  

 

 

 

2.2

I can solve problems and check my answers to make sure that they are right.
