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





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





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.
