Math Standards for Kindergarten
This week, we link our Homework Hotline Linked
to the National Math Standards
Grade Level: Kindergarten Standard: 1) Students understand that
there are properties such as length, weight, capacity and time
and that comparisons can be made using these objects.
1.1 compare the length, weight, and capacity of objects
Select 10 objects from a single cupboard, drawer, or closet.
Arrange the objects in order from smallest to largest starting
with the largest and smallest at either end and adding others
to the middle of the line.
1.2 demonstrate understanding of the concept of time
Dictate to an adult a list of six things which occur in the
morning and six things which occur in the evening at the child's
home. Review the list and arrange each item in order from that
which takes the most time to that which takes the least.
1.3 name the days of the week
Locate and spread out on a table a calendar big enough to place
an object on each day of the month (such as m&m, peanut, jelly
bean, etc). Play a searching game in which the adult asks the
child to locate the object(s) described. For example, eat the
m&m on the last Saturday of the month; eat the peanut every Wednesday
in the month, etc.
1.4 identify time to the nearest hour
Take a tour of the house in the morning and again at a later
time. Find all the clocks and say the number of the hour.
