Math

Goals 

  • Read, write, represent, compare, and identify numbers zero through 20 and count: 

          by ones beginning at one to 100 or higher,

          count on by ones from any given number, and

           count by tens to 100 or higher

  • Fluently add and subtract within five

  • Sort, identify, name, describe and compare basic 2D shapes such as a circle, square, triangle, and 3D shapes such as a cube, cone, or sphere

We use Everyday Mathematics (Edition 4), which is a comprehensive Pre-K through grade 6 mathematics program developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project and published by McGraw-Hill Education
