Curriculum
In Kindergarten, instructional time should focus on two critical areas: (1) representing, relating, and operating on whole nu
mbers, initially with sets
of objects; (2) describing shapes and space. More learning time in Kindergarten should be devoted to num
ber than to other topics.
(1) Students use numbers, including written numerals, to represent quantities and to solve quantitative problems, such as cou
nting objects in a
set; counting out a given number of objects; comparing sets or numerals; and modelin
g simple joining and separating situations with sets of objects,
or eventually with equations such as 5 + 2 = 7 and 7
–
2 = 5. (Kindergarten students should see addition and subtraction equations, and student
writing of
equations in Kin
dergarten is encoura
ged, but it is not required.) Students choose, combine, and apply
effective strategies for answer
ing
quantitative questions, including quickly recognizing the cardinalities of small se
ts of objects, counting and pro
ducing sets of given sizes, counting
the
number of objects in combined sets, or counting the number of objects that remain in a set after some are taken away.
(2) Students describe their physical world using geometric ideas (e.g., shape, orientation, spatia
l relations) and vo
cabulary. They iden
tify,
name, and describe basic two

dimensional shapes, such as squa
res, triangles, circles, rectan
gles, and hexagons, presented in a variety of ways (e.g.,
with different sizes and orientations), as well as three

dimensional shapes such as cubes, cones, cy
linders, and spheres. They use basic shapes and
spatial reasoning to model objects in their environment and to construct more complex shapes.

K.MP.1. Make sense of
problems and persevere
in solving them.
In Kindergarten, students begin to build the understanding that doing mathematics
involves solving problems and discussing how they solved them.
Students explain to
themselves the meaning of a problem and look for
ways to solve it. Younger students
may use concrete objects or pictures to help them conceptualize and solve problems.
They may check their thinking by asking themselves, “Does this make sense?” or they

are
listed throughout the grade

column to reflect the need
to connect the mathematical
practices to mathematical
content in instruction.
K.MP.5. Use
appropriate tools
strategically.
Younger students begin to
consider the available tools (including estimation) when
solving a mathematical problem and decide when certain tools might be helpful. For
instance, kindergarteners may decide that it might be advantageous to use linking cubes
to represent two quantities
and then compare the two representations side

by

side.
K.MP.6. Attend to
precision.
As kindergarteners
begin to develop their mathematical communication skills, they try to
use clear and precise language in their discussions with others and in their own
reasoning.
K.MP.7. Look for and
make use of structure.
Younger students begin to discern a pattern or structure. For instance,
students recognize
the pattern that exists in the teen numbers; every teen number is written with a 1
(representing one ten)
and ends with the digit that is first stated. They also recognize that
3 + 2 = 5 and 2 + 3 = 5.
K.MP.8. Look for and
express regularity in
repeated reasoning.
In the early grades, students notice repetitive actions in counting and computation, etc.
For e
xample, they may notice
that the next number in a counting sequence is one more.
When counting by tens, the next number in the sequence is “ten more” (or one more
group of ten). In addition, students continually check their work by asking themselves
,
“Does
this make sense?”

Counting on or counting from a given number conflicts with the learned strategy of counting from the beginning. In order to b
e successful in
counting on, students must understand cardinality. Students often merge or separate two groups of objects and then
re

count from the beginning to
determine the final number of objects represented. For these students, counting is still a rote skill or the benefits of coun
ting on have not been
realized. Games that require students to add on to a previous count to reach a
goal number encourage developing this concept. Frequent and brief
opportunities utilizing counting on and counting back are recommended. These concepts emerge over time and cannot be forced.
Like counting to 100 by either ones or tens, writing numbers f
rom 0 to 20 is a rote process. Initially, students mimic the actual formation of the
written numerals while also assigning it a name. Over time, children create the understanding that number symbols signify the
meaning of counting.
Numerals are used to com
municate across cultures and through time a certain meaning. Numbers have meaning when children can see mental images
of the number symbols and use those images with which to think. Practice count words and written numerals paired with picture
s, representa
tions of
objects, and objects that represent quantities within the context of life experiences for kindergarteners. For example, dot c
ards, dominoes and number
cubes all create different mental images for relating quantity to number words and numerals.
One way students can learn the left to right orientation of numbers is to use a finger to write numbers in air (sky writing).
Children will see
mathematics as something that is alive and that they are involved.
Common Misconceptions
Some students might not see zero as a number. Ask students to write 0 and say
zero
to represent the number of items left when all items have been
taken away. Avoid using the word
none
to represent this situation.

The emphasis of this standard is on the counting sequence.
When counting by ones, students need to understand that the next number in the sequence is one more. When counting by tens, t
he next number in
the sequence is “ten more” (or one more group of ten)
.
Instruction on the counting sequence should be
scaffold
(e.g., 1

10, then 1

20, etc.).
Counting should be reinforced throughout the day, not in isolation.
Examples:
Count the number of chairs of the students who are absent.
Count the number of stairs,
shoes, etc.
Counting groups of ten such as “fingers in the classroom” (ten fingers per student).
When counting orally, students should recognize the patterns that exist from 1 to 100. They should also recognize the pattern
s that exist when
counting by 10

What does this standard mean that a

This standard
addresses the writing of numbers and using the written numerals (0

20) to describe the amount of a set of objects. Due to varied
development of fine motor and visual development, a reversal of numerals is anticipated for a majority of the students. While
r
eversals should be
pointed out to students, the emphasis is on the use of numerals to represent quantities rather than the correct handwriting f
ormation of the actual
numeral itself.
This standard
asks for students to represent a set of objects with a wr
itten numeral. The number of objects being recorded should not be greater than
20. Students can record the quantity of a set by writing the numeral. Students can also create a set of objects based on the
numeral presented.

Students should be given multiple opportunities to count objects and recognize that a number represents a specific
quantity. Once this is established,
students begin to read and write numerals (numerals are the symbols for the quantities). The emphasis should first be on quan
tity and then connecting
quantities to the written symbols.
A sample unit sequence might inclu
de:
1.
Counting up to 20 objects in many settings and situations over several weeks.
2.
Beginning to recognize, identify, and read the written numerals, and match the numerals to given sets of objects.
3.
Writing the numerals to represent counted objects.
Since the
teen numbers are not written as they are said, teaching the teen numbers as one group of ten and extra ones is foundational t
o
understanding both the concept and the symbol that represents each teen number. For example, when focusing on the number “14,
” s
tudents
should count out fourteen objects using one

to

one correspondence and then use those objects to make one group of ten and four extra ones.
Students should connect the representation to the symbol “14.”

Counting and Cardinality M.K.CC
Count to tell the number of objects.
Students use numbers, including written numerals, to represent quantities and to solve quantitative problems, such as countin
g objects in a set;
counting out a given number of objects and comparing sets or numerals.
Instructional Strategies for Cluster
On
e of the first major concepts in a student’s mathematical development is cardinality. Cardinality, knowing that the number wo
rd said tells the
quantity you have and that the number you end on when counting represents the entire amount counted. The big idea
is that number means amount
and, no matter how you arrange and rearrange the items, the amount is the same. Until this concept is developed, counting is
merely a routine
procedure done when a number is needed. To determine if students have the cardinality
rule, listen to their responses when you discuss counting
tasks with them. For exa
mple, ask, “How many are here?”
The student counts correctly and says that there are seven. Then ask, “Are there seven?”.
Students may count or hesitate if they have not developed cardinality. Students with cardinality may emphasize the last count
or explain that there
are seven because they counted them. These students can now use counting to find a matching set.
Students
develop the understanding of counting and cardinality from experience. Almost any activity or game that engages children in c
ounting and
comparing quantities, such as board games, will encourage the development of cardinality. Frequent opportunities to us
e and discuss counting as a
means of solving problems relevant to kindergarteners is more beneficial than repeating the same routine day after day. For e
xample, ask students
questions that can be answered by counting up to 20 items before they change and a
s they change locations throughout the school building.
As students develop meaning for numerals, they also compare numerals to the quantities they represent. The models that can re
present numbers, such
as dot cards and dominoes, become tools for such co
mparisons. Students can concretely, pictorially or mentally look for similarities and differences
in the representations of numbers. They begin to “see” the relationship of one more, one less, two more and two less, thus la
nding on the concept that
success
ive numbers name quantities that are one larger. In order to encourage this idea, children need discussion and reflection of
pairs of numbers
from 1 to 10. Activities that utilize anchors of 5 and 10 are helpful in securing understanding of the relationshi
ps between numbers. This flexibility
with numbers will build students’ ability to break numbers into parts.
Provide a variety of experiences in which students connect count words or number words to the numerals that represent the qua
ntities. Students wil
l
arrive at an understanding of a number when they acquire cardinality and can connect a number with the numerals and the numbe
r word for the
quantity they all represent.

Common Misconceptions
Some students might think that the count word used to tag an i
tem is permanently connected to that item. So when the item is used again for counting
and should be tagged with a different count word, the student uses the original count word. For example, a student counts fou
r geometric figures:
triangle, square, circl
e and rectangle with the count words: one, two, three, four. If these items are rearranged as rectangle, triangle, circle and
square
and counted, the student says these count words: four, one, three, two.

What does this standard mean that a student will know and be able to do?
This standard
asks students to count a set of objects and see sets and numerals in relationship to one another, rather than as isolated num

This standard focuses on one

to

one correspondence and h
ow cardinality connects with quantity.
For example, when counting three bears, the student should use the counting sequence, “1

2

3,” to count the bears and recognize that “three”
represents the group of bears, not just the third bear. A student may use an
interactive whiteboard to count objects, cluster the objects, and
state, “This is three”.
Students need opportunities to connect number words (orally) and the quantities they represent.
Students should have opportunities to arrange a set of objects in a v
ariety of ways and be shown that the arrangement of those objects does not
change its quantity, numeric symbol or name in word form.
Students need a variety of games and activities which will provide ample opportunities for matching a set of objects with i
ts corresponding numeric
symbol and its word form.
The use of a variety of manipulatives and technologies is useful as well.
Students should be encouraged to draw their own examples of number sets.
In order to understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger, students should have experie
nce counting objects,
placing one more object in the group at a time.
For example, using cubes, the student should count the existi
ng group, and then place another cube in the set. Some students may need to re

count from one, but the goal is that they would count on from the existing number of cubes. S/he should continue placing one
more cube at a
time and identify the total number in
order to see that the counting sequence results in a quantity that is one larger each time one more cube is
placed in the group.
A student may use a clicker (electronic response system) to communicate his/her count to the teacher.

What does this standard mean that a student will know and be able to do?
This standard
calls for students to answer the question “How many are there?” by counting objects in a set and understanding that the last
number
stated when counting a set (…8, 9,
10
) represents the total amount of objects: “There are
10
bears in this pile.” (
Cardinali
ty
). It also requires students
to understand that the same set counted three different times will end up being the same amount each time. Thus, a purpose of
keeping track of
objects is developed. Therefore, a student who moves each object as it is counted
recognizes that there is a need to keep track in order to figure out
the amount of objects present. While it appears that this standard calls for students to have conservation of number, (regard
less of the arrangement of
objects, the quantity remains the s
ame), conservation of number is a developmental milestone of which some Kindergarten children will not have
mastered. The goal of this
objective is for students to be able to count a set of objects; regardless of the formation those objects are placed.

Counting and Cardinality M.K.CC
Compare numbers.
Instructional Strategies for Cluster
As children develop meaning for numerals, they also compare these numerals to the quantities represented and their number wor
ds. The modeling
numbers with manipulatives such as dot cards and five

and ten

frames become tools for such comparisons. Children
can look for similarities and
differences in these different representations of numbers. They begin to “see” the relationship of one more, one less, two mo
re and two less, thus
landing on the concept that successive numbers name quantities where one is lar
ger. In order to encourage this idea, children need discussion and
reflection of pairs of numbers from 1 to 10. Activities that utilize anchors of 5 and 10 are helpful in securing understandin
g of the relationships
between numbers. This flexibility with nu
mbers will greatly impact children’s ability to break numbers into parts.
Children demonstrate their understanding of the meaning of numbers when they can justify why their answer represents a quanti
ty just counted. This
justification could merely be the
expression that the number said is the total because it was just counted, or a “proof” by demonstrating a one to

one
match, by counting again or other similar means (concretely or pictorially) that makes sense. An ultimate level of understand
ing is reache
d when
children can compare two numbers from 1 to10 represented as written numerals without counting.
Students need to explain their reasoning when they determine whether a number is greater than, less than, or equal to another
number. Teachers need
Page

to a
sk probing questions such as “How do you know?” to elicit their thinking. For students, these comparisons increase in difficu
lty, from greater
than to less than to equal. It is easier for students to identify differences than to find similarities.

Students should develop a strong
sense of the relationship between quantities and numerals before they begin comparing numbers.
Other strategies:
Matching: Students use one

to

one correspondence, repeatedly matching one object from one set with one object from the other set to
determine
which set has more objects.
Counting: Students count the objects in each set, and then identify which set has more, less, or an equal number of objects.
Observation: Students may use observation to compare two quantities (e.g., by looking at two sets of o
bjects, they may be able to tell which
set has more or less without counting).
Observations in comparing two quantities can be accomplished through daily routines of collecting and organizing data in disp
lays. Students
create object graphs and pictographs
using data relevant to their lives (e.g., favorite ice cream, eye color, pets, etc.). Graphs may be
constructed by groups of students as well as by individual students.
Benchmark Numbers: This would be the appropriate time to introduce the use of 0, 5 and
10 as benchmark numbers to help students further
develop their sense of quantity as well as their ability to compare numbers.

Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
All standards in this cluster should only include numbers through 10
Students will model simple joining and separating situations with sets of objects, or eventually with equations such as 5 + 2
= 7 and 7
–
2 = 5.
(Kindergarten students should see additio
n and subtraction equations, and student writing of equations in kindergarten is encouraged, but it is not
required.) Students choose, combine, and apply effective strategies for answering quantitative questions, including quickly r
ecognizing the
cardinali
ties of small sets of objects, counting and producing sets of given sizes, counting the number of objects in combined sets, o
r counting the
number of objects that remain in a set after some are taken away.
Instructional Strategies for Cluster
Provide cont
extual situations for addition and subtraction that relate to the everyday lives of kindergarteners. A variety of situations
can be found in
children’s literature books. Students then model the addition and subtraction using a variety of representations su
ch as drawings, sounds, acting out
situations, verbal explanations and numerical expressions. Manipulatives, like two

color counters, clothespins on hangers, connecting cubes and
stickers can also be used for modeling these operations. Kindergarten student
s should see addition and subtraction equations written by the teacher.
Although students might struggle at first, teachers should encourage them to try writing the equations. Students’ writing of
equations in Kindergarten
is encouraged, but it is not requ
ired.
Create written addition or subtraction problems with sums and differences less than or equal to 10 using the numbers 0 to 10
and Table 1 on page 88
of the
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics
for guidance. It is important to use a pro
blem context that is relevant to
kindergarteners. After the teacher reads the problem, students choose their own method to model the problem and find a soluti
on. Students discuss
their solution strategies while the teacher represents the situation with an
equation written under the problem. The equation should be written by
listing the numbers and symbols for the unknown quantities in the order that follows the meaning of the situation. The teache
r and students should
use the words
equal
and
is the same as
interchangeably.
Have students decompose numbers less than or equal to 5 during a variety of experiences to promote their fluency with sums an
d differences less
than or equal to 5 that result from using the numbers 0 to 5. For example, ask students to us
e different models to decompose 5 and record their work
with drawings or equations. Next, have students decompose 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 in a similar fashion. As they come to understand
the role and meaning
of arithmetic operations in number systems, students
gain computational fluency, using efficient and accurate methods for computing.
The teacher can use backmapping and scaffolding to teach students who show a need for more help with counting. For instance,
ask students to build
a tower of 5 using 2 green a
nd 3 blue linking cubes while you discuss composing and decomposing 5. Have them identify and compare other ways to
make a tower of 5. Repeat the activity for towers of 7 and 9. Help students use counting as they explore ways to compose 7 an
d 9.
Common Mi
sconceptions
Students may over

generalize the vocabulary in word problems and think that certain words indicate solution strategies that must be used to fin
d an
answer. They might think that the word
more
always means to add and the words
take away
or
left
always means to subtract. When students use the
words
take away
to refer to subtraction and its symbol, teachers need to repeat students’ ideas using the words
minus
or
subtract
. For example,
students use addition to solve this Take from/Start Unknown pro
blem: Seth took the 8 stickers he no longer wanted and gave them to Anna. Now
Seth has 11 stickers
left
. How many stickers did Seth have to begin with?

If students progress from working with manipulatives to writing numerical expressions and equations, t
hey skip using pictorial thinking. Students
will then be more likely to use finger counting and rote memorization for work with addition and subtraction. Counting forwar
d builds to the concept
of addition while counting back leads to the concept of subtrac
tion. However, counting is an inefficient strategy. Teachers need to provide
instructional experiences so that students progress from the concrete level, to the pictorial level, then to the abstract lev
el when learning mathematical
concepts.

“Stranger in the Woods”
by Dana Islas
Originally featured in Math Solutions Online Newsletter, Issue 38
This lesson is anchored to the award

winning book, Stranger in the Woods by Carl Sams and Jean Stoick. The book features photographs of a series
of forest animals coming forward to explore a snowman (the stranger) that has appeared in the woods. After read
ing the story, children will be asked
to solve three key questions:
• Which animals visited the snowman?
• How many visited the snowman in our problem?
• How could you represent the animals to share your thinking with others?
Students use a combination of
pictures, words, and numbers to describe their problem. Samples of student work are included along with the teacher’s
chart for their formative assessment. (Source: Math Solutions)
“Comparing Connecting Cubes”
by Grace M. Burton
In this five

part unit, students use connecting cubes and counting stories, such as Ten Black Dots by Donald Crews, to build an understand
ing of
subtraction. There are five different presentations to
explore subtraction. Lesson One uses counting back/counting on to help children generate
simple subtraction models. In Lesson Two children write subtraction problems and model them with cubes. The results are recor
ded in a table so that
the two sets can b
e compared. Hopping on a number line is the central activity for Lesson Three as children find another way to understand
subtraction. Lesson Four uses cubes and a balance beam to illustrate concepts of more and less. Lesson Five focuses on fact f
amilies. A
brief
bibliography of counting stories that work well in a kindergarten classroom is included. (Source: Illuminations, Comparing Co

This lesson uses the picture book, Dragon Feet by Marjorie Jackson as the anchor for this math lesson. The teacher use
s this story about two children
who are celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year by being part of a dragon costume. The story prompts students to figure out qu
estions such as how
many children are in the costume and how many feet the dragon has. Through a co
mbination of acting out the story and drawings, the children
explore the math involved in this story and the concepts of one

to

one correspondence and one

to

two correspondence of objects. Additionally, the
author provides teaching strategies to build diff
erentiation into the lessons to meet her students varied developmental needs. (Source: Math

The number pairs that total ten are foundational for students’ ability
to work fluently within base

ten numbers and operations. Different models, such
as ten

frames, cubes, two

color counters, etc., assist students in visualizing these number pairs for ten.
Example 1:
Students place three objects on a ten frame and then dete

Students may use electronic versions of ten frames to develop this skill.
Example 2:
The student snaps ten cubes together to make a “train.”
Student breaks the “train” into two parts. S/he counts how many
are in each part and record the associated equation (10 = ___ + ___).
Student breaks the “train into two parts. S/he counts how many are in one part and determines how many are in the other part
without directly
counting that part. Then s/he records the a
ssociated equation (if the counted part has 4 cubes, the equation would be 10 = 4 + ___).
Student covers up part of the train, without counting the covered part. S/he counts the cubes that are showing and determines
how many are
covered up. Then s/he recor

Counting on (e.g., for 3+2, students will state, “3,” and then count on two more, “4, 5,” and state the solution is “5”)
Counting back (e.g., for 4

3, students will state, “4,” and then count back three, “3, 2, 1” and state the solution
is “1”)
Counting up to subtract (e.g., for 5

3, students will say, “3,” and then count up until they get to 5, keeping track of how many they counted
up, stating that the solution is “2”)
Using doubles (e.g., for 2+3, students may say, “I know that 2+2 is
4, and 1 more is 5”)
Using commutative property (e.g., students may say, “I know that 2+1=3, so 1+2=3”)

Instructional Strategies for Cluster
Kindergarteners need to understand the idea of
a ten
so they can develop the strategy of adding onto 10 to add within 20 in Grade 1. Students need to
construct their own base

ten ideas about quantities and their symbols by connecting to counting by ones. They should use a variety of manipulatives
to model an
d connect equivalent representations for the numbers 11 to19. For instance, to represent 13, students can count by ones and s
how 13
beans. They can anchor to five and show one group of 5 beans and 8 beans or anchor to ten and show one group of 10 beans and
3 beans. Students
need to eventually see
a ten
as different from 10 ones.
After the students are familiar with counting up to 19 objects by ones, have them explore different ways to group the objects
that will make counting
easier. Have them estimate be
fore they count and group. Discuss their groupings and lead students to conclude that grouping by ten is desirable.
10
ones make 1 ten
makes students wonder how something that means a lot of things can be one thing. They do not see that there are 10 single
objects
represented on the item for ten in pregrouped materials, such as the rod in base

ten blocks. Students then attach words to materials and groups
without knowing what they represent. Eventually they need to see the rod as
a ten
that they did not gro
up themselves. Students need to first use
groupable materials to represent numbers 11 to 19 because a group of ten such as a bundle of 10 straws or a cup of 10 beans m
akes more sense than
a
ten
in pregrouped materials.
Kindergarteners should use proporti
onal base

ten models, where a group of ten is physically 10 times larger than the model for a one.
Nonproportional models such as an abacus and money should not be used at this grade level.
Students should impose their base

ten concepts on a model made f
rom groupable and pregroupable materials (see Resources/Tools). Students can
transition from groupable to pregroupable materials by leaving a group of ten intact to be reused as a pregrouped item. When
using pregrouped
Page
36
of
65
materials, students should reflect on
the ten

to

one relationships in the materials, such as the “tenness” of the rod in base

ten blocks. After many
experiences with pregrouped materials, students can use dots and a stick (one tally mark) to record singles and a ten.
Encourage students to u
se base

ten language to describe quantities between 11 and 19. At the beginning, students do not need to use
ones
for the
singles. Some of the base

ten language that is acceptable for describing quantities such as18 includes
one ten and eight, a bundle and
eight
,
a rod
and 8 singles
and
ten and eight more.
Write the horizontal equation 18 = 10 + 8 and connect it to base

ten language. Encourage, but do not require,
students to write equations to represent quantities.
Common Misconceptions
Students have difficulty with
ten
as a singular word that means 10 things. For many students, the understanding that a group of 10 things can be
replaced by a single object and they both represent 10 is confusing. Help students develop the sense of 10 by f
irst using groupable materials then
replacing the group with an object or representing 10. Watch for and address the issue of attaching words to materials and gr
oups without knowing
what they represent. If this misconception is not addressed early on it ca
n cause additional issues when working with numbers 11

19 and beyond
(HOME)

Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and reco
rd each
compositi

one, two,

What does this standard mean that a student will know and be able to do?
This standard is the first time that students move beyond the number 10 with representations,
such as objects (manipulatives) or drawings. The spirit
of this standard is that students separate out a set of 11

19 objects into a group of ten objects with leftovers. This ability is a pre

cursor to later grades
when they need to understand the complex
concept that a group of 10 objects is also one ten (unitizing). Ample experiences with ten frames will help
solidify this concept. Research states that students are not ready to unitize until the end of first grade. Therefore, this w
ork in Kindergarten lay
s the
foundation of composing tens and recognizing leftovers.
Example:
Teacher: “Please count out 15 chips.”
Student: Student counts 15 counters (chips or cubes).
Teacher: “Do you think there is enough to make a group of ten chips? Do you think there
might be some chips leftover?”

Student: Student answers.
Teacher: “Use your counters to find out.”
Student: Student can either fill a ten frame or make a stick of ten connecting cubes. They answer, “There is enough to make a
group of ten.”
Teacher:
How many leftovers do you have?
Student: Students say, “I have 5 left over.”
Teacher: How could we use words and/or numbers to show this?
Student: Students might say “Ten and five is the same amount as 15”, “15 = 10 + 5”

Special attention needs to be paid to this set of numbers as they do not follow a consistent pattern in the verbal counting s
equence.
Eleven and twelve are special number words.
“Teen” means one “ten” plus ones.
The verbal counting sequence
for teen numbers is backwards
–
we say the ones digit before the tens digit. For example “27” reads tens to
ones (twenty

seven), but 17 reads ones to tens (seven

teen).
In order for students to interpret the meaning of written teen numbers, they should re
ad the number as well as describe the quantity. For
Page

example, for 15, the students should read “fifteen” and state that it is one group of ten
and
five ones and record that 15 = 10 + 5.
Teaching the teen numbers as one group of ten and extra ones is
foundational to understanding both the concept and the symbol that represent each
teen number. For example, when focusing on the number “14,” students should count out fourteen objects using one

to

one correspondence and then
use those objects to make one
group of ten ones and four additional ones. Students should connect the representation to the symbol “14.” Students
should recognize the pattern that exists in the teen numbers; every teen number is written with a 1 (representing one ten) an
d ends with the
digit that
is first stated.

Measurement and Data
Describe and compare measurable attributes.
Instructional Strategies for Cluster
It is critical for students to be able to identify and describe measureable attributes of objects. An object has different at
tributes that can be measured,
like the height and weight of a can of food. When students compare shapes directly, the attribute be
comes the focus. For example, when comparing
the volume of two different boxes, ask students to discuss and justify their answers to these questions: Which box will hold
the most? Which box will
hold least? Will they hold the same amount? Students can deci
de to fill one box with dried beans then pour the beans into the other box to determine
the answers to these questions.
Have students work in pairs to compare their arm spans. As they stand back

to

back with outstretched arms, compare the lengths of thei
r spans, then
determine who has the smallest arm span. Ask students to explain their reasoning. Then ask students to suggest other measurea
ble attributes of their
bodies that they could directly compare, such as their height or the length of their feet.
Page

Connect to other subject areas. For example, suppose that the students have been collecting rocks for classroom observation a
nd they wanted to know
if they have collected typical or unusual rocks. Ask students to discuss the measurable attributes of rocks.
Lead them to first comparing the weights
of the rocks. Have the class chose a rock that seems to be a “typical” rock. Provide the categories:
Lighter Than Our Typical Rock
and

Our Typical Rock
. Students can take turns holding a different rock
from the collection and directly comparing its weight to the weight of the typical
rock and placing it in the appropriate category. Some rocks will be left over because they have about the same weight as the
typical rock. As a class,
they count the number
of rocks in each category and use these counts to order the categories and discuss whether they collected “typical” rocks.

What does this
standard mean that a student will know and be able to do?
This standard
asks for direct comparisons of objects. Direct comparisons are made when objects are put next to each other, such as two chil
dren, two
books, two pencils. For example, a student may l
ine up two blocks and say, “This block is a lot longer than this one.” Students are not comparing
objects that cannot be moved and lined up next to each other.
Through ample experiences with comparing different objects, children should recognize that obje
cts should be matched up at the end of objects to get
accurate measurements. Since this understanding requires conservation of length, a developmental milestone for young children
, children need
Page

multiple experiences to move beyond the idea that ….
“Someti
mes this block is
longer than
this one and sometimes it
’
s
shorter
(depending on how I lay them side by side) and that
’
s okay.” “This block
is always longer than this block (with each end lined up appropriately).”
Before conservation of length: The striped
block is longer than the plain block when they are lined up like this.
But when I move the blocks around, sometimes the plain block is longer than the striped block.
After conservation of length: I have to line up the blocks to measure them. The plain block is always longer than the striped
block.

When making direct comparisons for length, students must attend to the “starting point” of each object. For example,
the ends need to be lined up at
the same point, or students need to compensate when the starting points are not lined up (conservation of length includes und
erstanding that if an
object is moved, its length does not change; an important concept when compar
ing the lengths of two objects).
Language plays an important role in this standard as students describe the similarities and differences of measurable attribu
tes of objects (e.g., shorter
than, taller than, lighter than, the same as, etc.).

Measurement and Data
Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
Instructional Strategies for Cluster
Provide categories for students to use to sort a collection of objects. Each category can relat
e to only one attribute, like
Red
and
Not Red
or
Hexagon
and
Not Hexagon,
and contain up to 10 objects. Students count how many objects are in each category and then order the categories by the numbe
r of
objects they contain.
Ask questions to initiate di
scussion about the attributes of shapes. Then have students sort a collection of two

dimensional and three

dimensional
shapes by their attributes. Provide categories like
Circles
and
Not Circles
or
Flat
and
Not Flat
. Have students count the objects in each
category and
order the categories by the number of objects they contain.
Have students infer the classification of objects by guessing the rule for a sort. First, the teacher uses one attribute to s
ort objects into two loops or
regions without labels. T
hen the students determine how the objects were sorted, suggest labels for the two categories and explain their reasoning.

What does this standard mean that a student will know and be able to do?
This standard
asks students to identify similarities and differences between objects (e.g., size, color, shape) and use the identified attr
ibutes to
sort
a
collection of objects. Once the objects are sorted, the student counts the amount in each set. Once each set is co
unted, then the student is asked to sort
(or group) each of the sets by the amount in each set.
For example, when given a collection of buttons, the student separates the buttons into different piles based on color (all t
he blue buttons are in one
pile, a
ll the orange buttons are in a different pile, etc.). Then the student counts the number of buttons in each pile: blue (5), g
reen (4), orange (3),
purple (4). Finally, the student organizes the groups by the quantity in each group (Orange buttons (3), Gree
n buttons next (4), Purple buttons with
the green buttons because purple also had (4), Blue buttons last (5).
This objective helps to build a foundation for data collection in future grades. In later grade, students will transfer these
skills to creating

Geometry
Identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres).
This entire cluster asks students to understand that certain attributes define what a shape is called (number of sides, numbe
r of angl
es, etc.) and other
attributes do not (color, size, orientation). Then, using geometric attributes, the student identifies and describes particul
ar shapes listed above.
Throughout the year, Kindergarten students move from informal language to describe what
shapes look like (e.g., “That looks like an ice cream
cone!”) to more formal mathematical language (e.g., “That is a triangle. All of its sides are the same length”). In Kindergar
ten, students need ample
experiences exploring various forms of the shapes (
e.g., size: big and small; types: triangles, equilateral, isosceles, scalene; orientation: rotated
slightly to the left, „upside down‟) using geometric vocabulary to describe the different shapes. In addition, students need
numerous experiences
comparing o
ne shape to another, rather than focusing on one shape at a time. This type of experience solidifies the understanding of the
various
attributes and how those attributes are different

or similar

from one shape to another.
Students in Kindergarten typic
ally recognize figures by appearance alone, often by comparing them to a known example of a shape, such as the
triangle on the left. For example, students in Kindergarten typically recognize that the figure on the left as a triangle, bu
t claim that the fig
ure on the
right is not a triangle, since it does not have a flat bottom. The properties of a figure are not recognized or known. Studen
ts make decisions on
identifying and describing shapes based on perception, not reasoning.
Instructional Strategie
s for Cluster
Develop spatial sense by connecting geometric shapes to students’ everyday lives. Initiate natural conversations about shapes
in the environment.
Have students identify and name two

and three

dimensional shapes in and outside of the classroo
m and describe their relative position.
Page
45
of
65
Ask students to find rectangles in the classroom and describe the relative positions of the rectangles they see, e.g.
This rectangle (a poster) is over the
sphere (globe)
. Teachers can use a digital camera to recor
d these relationships.
Hide shapes around the room. Have students say where they found the shape using positional words, e.g
. I found a triangle UNDER the chair
.
Have students create drawings involving shapes and positional words:
Draw a window ON the
door
or
Draw an apple UNDER a tree
. Some students
may be able to follow two

or three

step instructions to create their drawings.
Use a shape in different orientations and sizes along with non

examples of the shape so students can learn to focus on defining attributes of the
shape.
Manipulatives used for shape identification actually have three dimensions. However, Kindergartners n
eed to think of these shapes as two

dimensional or “flat” and typical three

dimensional shapes as “solid.” Students will identify two

dimensional shapes that form surfaces on three

dimensional objects. Students need to focus on noticing two and three dimen
sions, not on the words
two

dimensional
and
three

dimensional.
Common Misconceptions
Students many times use incorrect terminology when describing shapes. For example students may say a
cube
is a
square
or that a
sphere
is a
circle
.
The use of the two

dimensional shape that appears to be part of a three

dimensional shape to name the three

dimensional shape is a common
misconception. Work with students to help them understand that the two

dimensional shape is a part of the object but
it has a different name.

Teachers should
work with children and pose four mathematical questions: Which way? How far? Where? And what objects? To answer these
questions, children develop a variety of important skills contributing to their spatial thinking.

can of soup and asks,” What shape is this can?” Students respond “cylinder!”
Teacher places an object next to, behind, above, below, beside, or
in front of another object and asks positional questions. Where is the water
bottle? (water bottle is placed behind a book) Students say “The water bottle is behind the book.”

Instructional Strategies for Cluster
Use shapes collected from students to begin the investigation into basic properties and characteristics of t
wo

and three

dimensional shapes. Have
students analyze and compare each shape with other objects in the classroom and describe the similarities and differences bet
ween the shapes. Ask
students to describe the shapes while the teacher records key descripti
ve words in common student language. Students need to use the word
flat
to
describe two

dimensional shapes and the word
solid
to describe three

dimensional shapes.
Use the sides, faces and vertices of shapes to practice counting and reinforce the concept of one

to

one correspondence.
The teacher and students orally describe and name the shapes found on a Shape Hunt. Students draw a shape and build it using
material
s regularly
kept in the classroom such as construction paper, clay, wooden sticks or straws.
Students can use a variety of manipulatives and real

world objects to build larger shapes with these and other smaller shapes: squares, circles,
triangles, recta
ngles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres. Kindergarteners can manipulate cardboard shapes, paper plates, pattern
blocks,
tiles, canned food, and other common items.
Have students compose (build) a larger shape using only smaller shapes that
have the same size and shape. The sides of the smaller shapes should
touch and there should be no gaps or overlaps within the larger shape. For example, use one

inch squares to build a larger square with no gaps or
overlaps. Have students also use differen
t shapes to form a larger shape where the sides of the smaller shapes are touching and there are no gaps or
overlaps. Ask students to describe the larger shape and the shapes that formed it.
Common Misconceptions
One of the most common misconceptions in geometry is the belief that orientation is tied to shape. A student may see the firs
t of the figures below as
a triangle, but claim to not know the name of the second.
Students need to have many experiences wit
h shapes in different orientations. For example, in the
Just Two Triangles
activity referenced above, ask
students to form larger triangles with the two triangles in different orientations.
Another misconception is confusing the name of a two

dimensional
shape with a related three

dimensional shape or the shape of its face. For
example, students might call a
cube
a
square
because the student sees the face of the cube.

Students analyze and compare two

and three

dimensional shapes by observations. Their visual thinking enables them to determine if things are alike
or different based on the appearance
of the shape. Students sort objects based on appearance. Even in early explorations of geometric properties, they
are introduced to how categories of shapes are subsumed within other categories. For instance, they will recognize that a squ
are is a special
type of
rectangle.
Students should be exposed to triangles, rectangles, and hexagons whose sides are not all congruent. They first begin to desc
ribe these shapes using
everyday language and then refine their vocabulary to include sides and
vertices/corners. Opportunities to work with pictorial representations,
concrete objects, as well as technology helps student develop their understanding and descriptive vocabulary for both two

and three

dimensional
shapes
Students need opportunities to
sort shapes based on properties like size.

What does this standard mean that a student will know and be able to do?
This standard
asks students
to apply their understanding of geometric attributes of shapes in order to create given shapes. For example, a student may
roll a clump of play

doh into a sphere or use their finger to draw a triangle in the sand table, recalling various attributes in orde
r to create that
particular shape.
Mathematical Practices:
K.MP.1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
K.MP.4. Model with mathematics.
K.MP.7. Look for and make use of structure.
Vocabulary:
flat, solid, sides, corners, triangles, squares, rectangles, circles, hexagons, cube, cone, cylinder, sphere, vertices, faces
, round,
curved, figures, equal, length

What does this standard mean that a student will know and be able to do?
This standard
moves beyond identifying and classifying simple shapes to manipulating two or more shapes to create a new shape. This concept
begins to develop as students‟ first move, rotate, flip, and arrange puzzle pieces. Next, students use their experiences with
puzz
les to move given
shapes to make a design (e.g., “Use the 7 tangram pieces to make a fox.”). Finally, using these previous foundational experie
nces, students
manipulate simple shapes to make a new shape.
Mathematical Practices:
K.MP.1. Make sense of
problems and persevere in solving them.
K.MP.3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
K.MP.4. Model with mathematics.
MP.7. Look for and make use of structure.

Students use pattern blocks, tiles, or paper shapes and technology to make new two

and three

dimensional shapes. Their investigations allow them
to determine what kinds of shapes they can join to create new shapes. They answer questions such as “What shap
es can you use to make a square,
rectangle, circle, triangle? …etc.”
Students may use a document camera to display shapes they have composed from other shapes. They may also use an interactive w
hiteboard to copy
shapes and compose new shapes. They should
describe and name the new shape.
Students can practice with concepts by working with puzzles in which the outline is covered with shapes such as tangram piece

There are 3 bags with 6 plums
in each bag. How many plums
are there in all?
Measurement example
. You
need 3 lengths of string, each
6 inches long. How much
string will you need
altogether?
If 18 plums are shared equally into 3
bags, then how many plums will be in
each bag?
Measurement example
. You have 18
inches of string, which you will cut into
3
equal pieces. How long will each piece
of string be?
If 18 plums are to be packed 6 to
a bag, then how many bags are
needed?

There are 3 rows of apples
with 6 apples in each row.
How many apples are there?
Area example
. What is the
area of a 3 cm by 6 cm
rectangle?
If 18 apples are arranged into 3 equal
rows, how many apples will be i
n each
row?
Area example
. A rectangle has area 18
square centimeters. If one side is 3 cm
long, how long is a side next to it?
If 18 apples are arranged into
equal rows of 6 apples, how
many rows will there be?
Area example
. A rectangle has
area 18 square centimeters. If
one side is 6 cm long, how long
is a side next to it?
Compare
A blue hat costs $6. A red hat
costs 3 times as much as the
blue hat. How much does the
red hat cost?
Measurement example
. A
rubber band is 6 cm long.
How long will the rubber
band be when it is stretched to
be 3 times as long?
A red hat costs $18 and that is 3 times as
much as a blue hat costs. How much does
a blue hat cost?
Measurement example
. A rubber band is
stretche
d to be 18 cm long and that is 3
times as long as it was at first. How long
was the rubber band at first?
A red hat costs $18 and a blue
hat costs $6. How many times as
much does the red hat cost as the
blue hat?
Measurement example
. A rubber
band was 6
cm long at first. Now
it is stretched to be 18 cm long.
How many times as long is the
rubber band now as it was at
first?
General
a x b = ?
a x ? = p and p ÷ a = ?
? x b = p and p ÷ b = ?
38
The first examples in each cell are examples of discrete things. These are easier for students and should be given before the
measurement examples.
39
The language in the array examples shows the easiest form of array problems. A harder form is to use th
e terms rows and columns: The apples in the
grocery window are in 3 rows and 6 columns. How many apples are in
there? Both forms are valuable.
40
Area involves arrays of squares that have been pushed together so that there are no gaps or overlaps, so arra
y problems include these especially important measurement situations.
