The State of North Carolina has adopted the Common Core State Standards in Math for this school year. This means that math instruction will be changing in every grade level. Our math program will be a learning experience for our teachers as well as our students this year! The new kindergarten standards can be found at www.corestandards.org.
Many of these skills may be more difficult than you might expect for kindergarten. If your child can complete these skills effectively, you can increase the numbers to continue working on the skill in a more advanced way. Some of the skills our students will be expected to master are to add and subtract fluently within 5, count to 100 with no errors, identify numbers and make sets up to 10, and identify/demonstrate greater than, less than, and equal. Please pay special attention to these skills on homework and work on them with your child. As always, please contact your teacher with any questions!
