Course Description

In this course, students will learn to recognize numbers and understand the quantity of numbers. They will use numbers to complete basic addition and subtraction problems. They will learn how to correctly write numbers, and be able to do simple geometry, measurement, problem solving, reasoning, graphing, patterning, recognizing and counting money, telling time, and basic fractions through direct instruction, discussion, and exploring with manipulatives using the Right Start Math program.

In addition to being able to discuss their learning, students will demonstrate their understanding of these topics through the use of the abacus, playing math games, and creating projects with manipulatives.

Kindergarten Math


The specific content and focus of a kindergarten math syllabus may vary based on the educational standards and curriculum followed by the school or district. However, I can provide a general overview of the topics commonly covered in kindergarten math:

1. **Counting and Number Recognition:**
   – Counting to at least 100, and possibly beyond.
   – Recognizing and writing numbers 0 to 10.
   – Understanding the concept of one-to-one correspondence (matching one number to one object).

2. **Number Operations:**
   – Basic addition and subtraction concepts using manipulatives, fingers, or mental calculations.
   – Understanding basic addition and subtraction word problems in context.

3. **Patterns:**
   – Identifying and creating simple patterns (e.g., ABAB, AABB).
   – Recognizing and extending patterns in different contexts.

4. **Shapes and Geometry:**
   – Identifying and naming basic shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle).
   – Understanding positional words (e.g., above, below, beside) and basic spatial relationships.

5. **Measurement:**
   – Comparing sizes (big/small, long/short).
   – Using non-standard units to measure length, height, and weight.

6. **Data and Graphs:**
   – Sorting and classifying objects based on different attributes.
   – Creating and interpreting simple graphs (e.g., bar graphs with pictures).

7. **Time:**
   – Understanding basic concepts of time (morning, afternoon, evening).
   – Sequencing events in order.

8. **Money:**
   – Recognizing and identifying coins (penny, nickel, dime, quarter).
   – Understanding basic concepts of value and simple transactions.

9. **Basic Math Vocabulary:**
   – Developing a basic understanding of mathematical terms (more, less, equal, same).

10. **Problem Solving:**
    – Engaging in simple problem-solving activities and understanding the process of finding solutions.

11. **Math Games and Activities:**
    – Engaging in hands-on activities, games, and manipulative-based learning to reinforce mathematical concepts.

It’s important to note that the emphasis at this level is on hands-on, experiential learning, and activities that make math enjoyable and accessible to young learners. Additionally, teachers often integrate math concepts into other subjects to provide a holistic learning experience. Always check with the specific curriculum or educational standards followed by the school to get a detailed understanding of the kindergarten math syllabus.

Mrs. Christine Moray

Christine is excited to continue her career of teaching kindergarten at American Heritage Salt Lake. She has taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, and kindergarten in Salt Lake City School District for the last 35 years.  “I love teaching kindergarten, because I can easily see the huge amount of learning the kids achieve. They come in sometimes not knowing how to write their name, but by the end of the year, they’re reading, writing and doing all sorts of math. Now that I have the opportunity of teaching children at American Heritage, I also look forward to sharing that they are children of God.” Christine has been married for 37 years and has 5 adult children and 5 sweet grandchildren.
