Welcome to the new progression for Kindergarten. This progression builds upon Math Framework Project Phase 1 work (see Progression v1 here), taking many of the best features and building in an Overarching Question, Essential Questions, and Big Ideas for each unit. This new model takes the work of bundling standards to the next level by grouping together grade level concepts under Big Ideas. The Big Ideas are designed to represent the critical mathematics of this grade level in a manner we believe to be more coherent and productive as a guide for planning instruction, assessment, and intervention. Big Ideas are not a replacement for the objectives.
Click on the unit numbers below to see essential understandings, student activities, and suggested sequencing.
The use of an asterisk (*) indicates an objective is repeated in another unit or an objective that is partially taught in a unit and will be taught in its entirety in a later unit. The parts of the objective that will be taught in a later unit is indicated by the “strikethroughs.” Occasionally, new words are added to the objective to ensure the objective still makes sense considering the strikethroughs.

What procedures do you need within the class to ensure a productive mathematical experience?

1. What is math?
2. Why is math important?
3. How do I use math?
4. How does math benefit me?
5. Where do I see math?

A daily math meeting/calendar time is an integral part of the kindergarten math experience.

K.N.1.1 Count aloud forward in sequence to 100 by 1’s and 10’s.
K.N.1.2 Recognize that a number can be used to represent how many objects are in a set up to 10.
K.N.1.4 Recognize without counting (subitize) the quantity of a small group of objects in organized and random arrangements up to 10. Clarification statement: Subitizing is defined as instantly recognizing the quantity of a set without having to count. “Subitizing” is not a vocabulary word and is not meant for student discussion at this age. (5)
K.N.4.1 Identify pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters by name.
K.GM.3.1 Develop an awareness of simple time concepts using words such as yesterday, today, tomorrow, morning, afternoon, and night within his/her daily life.
K.D.1.1 Collect and sort information about objects and events in the environment.
K.N.1.7 Find a number that is 1 more or 1 less than a given number up to 10.*
K.A.1.2 Recognize, duplicate, complete, and extend repeating, shrinking and growing patterns involving shape, color, size, objects, sounds, movement, and other contexts.*
