Flying By!


Picture things are just flying by in kindergarten now, that always seems to happen at this time of the year! Our third report cards are coming home and the LAST ones will be  before you know it! We are currently working on our end of the year, "get ready for first grade skills!!"

So please practice your math facts each night. Hopefully your child can add any number 1 through 5 automatically by the start of first grade. Keep working!

Here is the list of math skills that your child will be expected to know for their first grade teacher:

  • Identifies, copies, extends, and creates patterns
  • Can count to 100 by 1's, 5's and 10's
  • Identifies numerals (0-100)
  • Labels sets (0-10) with correct numeral
  • Compares sets of objects and uses the terms equal, more than, or less than correctly
  • Identifies coins (penny, nickel, dime, quarter)
  • Joins and separates sets of objects
  • Tells time to the hour
  • Identifies half versus whole
  • Divides sets of objects into equal groups
  • Measures length with a variety of non standard measurements
  • Compares measurements and uses the terms shorter, longer, taller, heavier, warmer, cooler, holds more, etc. correctly
  • Uses positional words to explain location  (left, right, on, off, inside, between, above, below, etc.)
  • Interprets graphs
  • Counts with 1:1 correspondence
  • Sorts by attributes (shape, size, color)
