Kindergarten Math Topics

Kindergarten

In the first trimester of the school year, Kindergarten students will work on the following skills:

  • Identifying the numerals for 1-10
  • Counting up to 10 objects
  • Comparing and ordering numbers up to 10

You can help your child at home by having them practice these skills.  When you see a number that is 10 or less, have them read it to you.  Have them count objects around the house.  You could ask how many buttons are on their shirt or how many windows are in their bedroom. 

Here are some other resources:

  • PBS Kids: games and videos.  You can select games by topic (math, science, etc.)  Visit: http://pbskids.org/games/all-topics/
  • ABCYA: games.  One that specifically addresses counting to 10 and numeral identification is Birthday Candle Counting.  Visit:  http://www.abcya.com/kindergarten_counting.htm . Another game to try is Counting, Sorting and Comparing.  Visit:  http://www.abcya.com/counting_sorting_comparing.htm
  • Make a set of number flashcards 1-10.  Give your child one of the numbers and ask them to find that many items to match.  For example, give your child the number three and ask them to bring you that many socks (or blocks, or crayons, etc.).
