# Kindergarten

count items in the house such as toys, books, or cookies.

move and count (e.g. jumping jacks, bouncing balls, etc.).

sort snacks (e.g. by size, shape, color, etc.).

put objects into groups to count and compare how many are in each group (e.g. forks and spoons, shoes, etc.).

create a yes/no question to ask others (e.g. Do you like pizza? Do you have a pet?); record and analyze data collected.

organize objects (e.g. shoes, hair accessories, toys) by attributes and explain the sorting rule.

collect daily weather data and organize the data in a chart.

describe positions of objects in the house.

sort objects to the top, middle, or bottom of shelves (e.g. in the pantry, refrigerator, bookshelf).

play a game following positional directions to place a stuffed animal in different locations (e.g. above the book, between the chair and table).

describe the shape of objects (e.g. The door is a rectangle.).

make a tower of objects (e.g. Legos, blocks, cans). Break the tower into two parts. Tell how many are in each part and then how many there are altogether.

show ways to make a number by: o drawing a picture of boys and girls to show different combinations of 5. Repeat this for other numbers through 10 using small toys to show ways to make a group of 5. Repeat this for other numbers through 10.

use stuffed animals to act out a story problem (e.g. There are 3 teddy bears at the park. Then 1 went home. How many are still at the park?).

make a number 11 through 19 by using straws or sticks to show a group of ten and some more ones. Explain how straws or sticks are organized.

play the game “What Number Am I?” Create a number (11 through 19) using straws or sticks. Then write the number shown with the sticks or straws. Take turns creating the number.
