The goal of kindergarten math curriculum is to prepare children for first grade math:
~ To count by rote at least to 20, but preferably a little beyond.
~ The concepts of equality, more, and less.
~ To count backwards from 10 to 0.
~ To recognize numbers.
~ To be able to write numbers.
~ To recognize basic shapes.
~ To understand up, down, under, near, on the side, etc. (basic directions).
~ To understand the concepts of addition and subtraction with small numbers.
~ Expose the student to two-digit numbers.
Be careful when discussing tenths, hundredths, and thousandths with your children. Pronounce these terms with special emphasis on the “-ths” to help avoid their confusion with tens, hundreds, and thousands.
Division with remainders. Your child will most likely come across or ask about situations where division “does not work.” These can be explained with the introduction of the remainder. It is an important idea to understand as the division of larger numbers will require the “carrying” of this remainder.
