Welcome to Kindergarten Math!
Math in Kindergarten will focus on two major areas: 1) Addition and subtraction concepts, skills and problem solving and 2) Describing shapes and space. We want our students to be great problem solvers and have many strategies to solve math problems. In class, the children will learn a variety of instructional strategies that will become foundational for work from grades 1 - 5. Resources, including video links, will be added to this page to help you assist your child at home.
"Procedural fluency is the ability to apply procedures accurately, efficiently, and flexibly; to transfer procedures to different problems and contexts; to build or modify procedures from other procedures; and to recognize when one strategy or procedure is more appropriate to apply than another." National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
By the end of Kindergarten, the goal is for students to be fluent with addition and subtraction within 5.
Units of Study
Eureka Math is comprised of units called Modules. The modules build on each other, creating a unified sequence of topics to help build student understanding and the development of computation skills and the ability to reason mathematically. A lot of time is spent on building conceptual understanding, meaning we spend a lot of time with models such as drawings and objects, in order to build a strong foundation of understanding how math works, not just how to solve quick addition or subtraction equations.
Module 1: Numbers to 10
Module 2: Two-Dimensional and Three-Dimensional Shapes
Module 3: Measurement - 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
