Student Learning Objectives:
· Students will be able to count and represent with a written numeral a number of objects to 20.
· Students will be able to write numerals 0-20.
· Students will be able to count to 50 by ones and tens.
· Students will be able to identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group (groups of up to 10 objects).
· Students will be able to compare numbers (up to 10) written as numerals.
· Students will be able to describe measurable attributes of objects (i.e. length and weight).
· Students will be able to directly compare and describe two objects with a measurable attribute in common using “more of/less of” the attribute.
· Students will be able to analyze and compare two and three-dimensional shapes in
different sizes and orientations by counting sides or vertices or comparing attributes such as side lengths.
Activities To Do At Home:
· Count, count, count! Count mailboxes when you take walks. Count plates when you set the table. Count cars passing by. Count anything and everything! Make sure you are practicing counting by both ones and tens.
· Practice number formation (1-20) EVERYDAY! Be sure to correct number reversals when you see them. Make it fun! Use shaving cream during bath time, pudding, playdough, markers, crayons, pencils, etc.
· Encourage students to explore addition and subtraction using manipulatives (i.e. matchbox cars, m&m's, unifix cubes, etc). Create a number story and have them solve.
· Use addition flashcards as a "secret password" to enter different rooms in your house. Before they are allowed in, they must answer the addition fact correctly.
· Give you child a group of objects. Have them count the number of objects and then write the total number.
· Have your child pick a handful of objects and place them in a pile. Let them pick another handful and place them into a different pile. Your kinder should count each pile and be able to tell you which pile has the most and which pile has the least.
· Let your kinder pick two cards from a playing deck. Which number is larger? Which number is smaller?
· Use different materials (rulers, pencils, hands, feet, etc.) to measure things around the house. Encourage your child to describe their measurements using "longer than" and "shorter than."
· Practice weighing items at home. Have your child make predictions before weighing. Why do you think this item is "heavier/lighter" than this item?
· Let your child explore 2D and 3D shapes. Practice sorting shapes and counting sides.
