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.
Also, check out and download the series of fraction worksheets for free.To get better practice in fractions, try math games like Froggy fraction that help in fun practice.
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.
Here’s hoping that now simplifying fractions for you would be easy and not so ‘trick-y’. Happy Fractions!
