WASHINGTON KINDERGARTEN MATHEMATICS STANDARDS
Students begin to develop the concept of whole numbers and how they relate to one another. Students practice counting and using a number line. They build a foundation for addition and subtraction by putting together and taking apart simple numbers.
Students work with patterns and explore operations to build early foundations for computation and algebraic thinking. They explore the concepts of addition and subtraction by joining and separating sets of objects. Using rules created from patterns, students make predictions about what might come next.
Students sort objects in a variety of ways and describe how they are sorted. Students name simple two- and three-dimensional figures and recognize them in the environment. They expand their nderstanding of space and location by describing where people and objects are.
Students begin the development of basic measurement concepts that will expand in later grades.
Reasoning, problem solving, and communication
Students begin to build the concept that doing mathematics involves solving problems and discussing how they solved them. Problems at this level emphasize counting and activities that are precursors to addition and subtraction. The seeds for communication are developed as students respond to questions like “How did you get that?” and “Why is that true?”
