Whether you’re a first-time parent to a kindergartener or it’s your third time around the block, our goal is to take the guesswork out of elementary math. Browse our kindergarten math guides designed to make learning math a breeze.

Kindergarten is a crucial time in your child’s life. It’s when they learn valuable skills they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. We’ll tell you what to expect as your kindergarten student starts their mathematics journey!

We’ve researched kindergarten math standards from across the country to give you insight into what your kindergartener can expect to learn. Let’s take a look!

### Counting

1. Count to 100. Teachers will start simple, having students count from 1 to 5, then 1 to 10, and so on. By the end of kindergarten, your student should be able to count to 100 using 1s and 10s!
2. Count forward from a given number between 1 and 100. If you ask your student to count to 10 starting at 4, they can follow the sequence: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 without returning to 1.
3. Write numbers from 0 to 20. They will understand that 0 means there is no value.
4. Understand quantities. They will be able to count objects and tell you the number. For example, when picking strawberries, you ask, “How many berries are in the bucket?” Your student should be able to count them and give you a number (so long as the berries number between 1 and 100!)
5. Compare numbers. Your kindergartner should be able to tell you that 10 is greater than 5 and that 5 is less than 8.

1. Represent addition and subtraction. Kindergartners should be able to use their fingers, drawings, objects, and more to show they understand what it means to add or subtract something to or from something else.
2. Add and subtract within 10. This may seem easy to adults, but we all had to learn it, too! Students will learn how to add and subtract within 10.
3. Solve simple addition and subtraction word problems. When asked: “If Billy has 3 apples, and Sally has 6 apples, how many apples do Billy and Sally have?” students should be able to add the two together to say 9.
4. Fluently add and subtract within 5. This means that adding and subtracting between 1 and 5 should be easy breezy for students by the end of the grade!

### Measurement

1. Compare objects based on weight or length. They should be able to clearly state which of two objects is heavier or lighter, and which is longer or shorter than the other.
2. Sort objects into categories. They will be able to look at a given number of objects, such as squares, triangles, and circles, and then be able to sort them into categories.

### Shapes/Geometry

1. Identify and describe shapes. Kindergarten students will be able to look at a building and identify the shapes it consists of, such as circles, rectangles, or squares.
2. Tell if a shape is two- or three-dimensional. Students may not use these exact phrases, but they should be able to pick up a ball and say it is a “solid” circle while identifying a drawn circle as a “flat” circle.
3. Correctly name shapes, regardless of orientation or size. Students should be able to tell that the moon is a circle and that a soccer ball is a circle.
4. Build and draw shapes to make bigger objects/pictures. Kindergartners will be able to use shapes to depict common objects they find in the world.
5. Use blocks to create bigger shapes. Your child will use blocks in class – and maybe Legos outside of class – to build new and bigger shapes.

Remember that all students learn at their own pace. If your student struggles with concepts they’re learning in class, try talking to their teacher! You can also use a math app like DoodleMath for fun, stress-free practice. Research shows that playing math games helps students learn and retain information!

Most school district standards state that kindergarten students should be able to count from 1 to 10 before they move on to 1st grade, but this may depend on the individual school or teacher. Students should also be able to understand that 0 has no value. Some schools work to get kindergarten students counting to 100.

There are plenty of options out there! We recommend exploring some of our math games and skill guides to help students have fun with and practice the concepts they’re learning in school. When in doubt, keep it engaging: stack cups and count them as you go, or use Legos to talk about shapes. The more entertaining, the better!

First, don’t panic. Many kindergarten students are new to concepts like addition, subtraction, and even counting. Start by talking to the teacher to see if there are strategies you can use at home to strengthen skills. Then, take a look at the games and guides we offer and try out different ones to see what works best for your little learner!
