                              Kindergarten Math

       Kindergarten students are expected to spend the majority of their Math time working on learning about
Numbers. Many math skills can be practiced through various daily activities and games that involve counting,
matching etc. There are also many workbooks that can be used to reinforce and practice some of the
mathematical skills necessary for Kindergarten. Here are some activities that you may want to work on:

Patterns and Relations

                              Kindergarten Math
                 Observation Checklist for Numeracy
Children will enter Kindergarten with varied backgrounds and experiences, but they will also leave it
demonstrating a range of achievement of the Kindergarten expectations. Be sure to give your child many
opportunities to talk about mathematics and work with manipulatives. By the end of Kindergarten, many
children will complete the following:

            Please mark the concepts below once with the following key for each term:
                         O = Often      S = Sometimes        N = Not yet

1 2 3 Number Expectations (60%)

         - count by 1’s, starting anywhere from 1 to 10

         - count backwards by 1’s, starting anywhere from 10 to 1

         - recognize, at a glance, and name familiar arrangements of 1 to 5 objects or dots

         - create a set of objects corresponding to a given numeral, 1 to 10

         - name the number for a given set of objects, 1 to 10

         - hold up the appropriate number of fingers for a given numeral, 1 to 10

         - match numerals with their given pictorial representations

         - create a set to show more than, fewer than or as many as a given set

         - compare two sets of objects, 1 to 10, using words such as more than, less than
         and the same as.


1 2 3 Patterns and Relations (20%)

         - identify between a repeating pattern and non-repeating pattern in a set

         - copy and describe a given repeating pattern (e.g. actions, shapes, colour, sound,

         - extend a variety of given repeating patterns to two more repetitions

         - create and describe a repeating pattern using manipulatives (e.g. popsicle sticks,
         stickers, pebbles)
         - identify and describe a repeating pattern in a familiar song, poem or nursery

1 2 3 Shape and Space (20%)
         - compare the length (height) of two given objects and explain (e.g. shorter,
         longer (taller), or almost the same)

         - compare the mass (weight) of two given objects and explain (e.g. lighter,
         heavier, or almost the same)

         - compare the volume (capacity) of two given objects and explain (e.g. less, more,
         bigger, smaller, or almost the same)

         - sort and explain a set of familiar 3-D objects using a single sorting rule (e.g.
         size, shape, colour)

         - create a given 3-D object using materials such as clay, building blocks etc.

         - describe a 3-D object (big, little, round, like a box, like a can etc.)
