# Kindergarten Math Curriculum

## Quarterly Overview of Kindergarten Mathematics

The objectives and outcomes for each unit are common across FCPS and based on the Virginia Standards of Learning. The pacing by quarter and by week provides an example of how the curriculum can be organized throughout the year. Teacher teams may adjust the pacing or order of units to best meet the needs of students.

## Units and Details

### Unit 0: Math Workshop Routines

Students will:

• Learn self regulating skills to increase focus.
• Listen to read alouds with connections to math routines and skills.
• Explore math materials through guided discovery and discussion.
• Learn how to share and reflect on their math learning.

### Unit 1: Attributes

Students will:

• Sort and classify objects according to one attribute.

### Unit 2: Counting and Number Part 1

Students will:

• Tell how many are in a given set of 10 or fewer objects by counting orally.
• Read, write, and represent numbers from 0 through 10.
• Given no more than three sets, each set containing 10 or fewer concrete objects, compare and describe one set as having more, fewer, or the same number of objects as the other set(s).
• Count forward orally by ones from 0 to 20.
• Count backward orally by ones from 10.
• Identify the number after, without counting when given any number between 0 and 20.

### Unit 3: Patterns

Students will:

• Identify, describe, extend, create, and transfer repeating patterns.

### Unit 4: Counting and Number Part 2

Students will:

• Tell how many are in a given set of 20 or fewer objects by counting orally.
• Read, write, and represent numbers from 0 through 20.
• Given no more than three sets, each set containing 10 or fewer concrete objects, compare and order sets from least to greatest and greatest to least.
• Count forward orally by ones from 0 to 31.
• Count backward orally by ones when given any number between 1 and 10.
• Identify the number after, without counting, when given any number between 0 and 30.

### Unit 5: Composing and Decomposing Part 1

Students will:

• Recognize and describe with fluency part-whole relationships for numbers up to 5.
• Investigate and describe part-whole relationships for numbers up to 5.

### Unit 6: Counting and Number Part 3

Students will:

• Count forward orally by ones from 0 to 100.
• Identify the number after, without counting, when given any number between 0 and 100 and identify the number before, without counting, when given any number between 1 and 10.
• Count forward by tens to determine the total number of objects to 100.

### Unit 7: Geometry

Students will:

• Identify and describe plane figures (circle, triangle, square, and rectangle).
• Compare the size (smaller, larger) and shape of plane figures (circle, triangle, square, and rectangle).
• Describe the location of one object relative to another (above, below, next to) and identify representations of plane figures (circle, triangle, square, and rectangle) regardless of their positions and orientations in space.

### Unit 8: Composing and Decomposing Part 2

Students will:

• Investigate and describe part-whole relationships for numbers up to 10.
• Model and solve single-step story and picture problems with sums to 5 using concrete objects.

### Unit 9: Money

Students will:

• Recognize the attributes of a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter and identify the number of pennies equivalent to a nickel, a dime, and a quarter.

### Unit 10: Data Analysis

Students will:

• Collect, organize, and represent data.
• Read and interpret data in object graphs, picture graphs, and tables.

### Unit 11: Calendar

Students will:

• Investigate the passage of time by reading and interpreting a calendar.

### Unit 12: Measurement

Students will:

• Compare two objects or events, using direct comparisons, according to one or more of the following attributes:
• Length (longer and shorter)
• Height (taller and shorter)
• Weight (heavier and lighter)
• Temperature (hotter and colder)
• Volume (more and less)
• Time (longer and shorter)

### Unit 13: Fraction Concepts

Students will:

• Investigate fractions by representing and solving practical problems involving equal sharing with two sharers.

### Unit 14: Addition and Subtraction

Students will:

• Model and solve single-step story and picture problems with sums to 10 and differences within 10, using concrete objects.

## Assessments

Student assessments are part of the teaching and learning process.

• Teachers give assessments to students on an ongoing basis to
• Check for understanding
• Gather information about students' knowledge or skills.
• Assessments provide information about a child's development of knowledge and skills that can help families and teachers better plan for the next steps in instruction.

For testing questions or additional information about how schools and teachers use test results to support student success, families can contact their children's schools.

In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), kindergarten tests focus on measuring content knowledge and skill development.
