• April: What is Kindergarten studying?


    Module 3:

    Unit Summary: In this module, students explore the big ideas that all living things in the natural world have needs in order to survive and grow and that, through observation, we can discern patterns in the ways that living things meet their needs. Through a close study of trees and the living things that depend on them, students take on the roles of researcher and scientist to make observations of the natural world. From those observations, they determine patterns that explain how living things live and grow.

    Unit Tasks: 

    • Reading and Answering Questions about an Informational Text
    • Writing an Informational Research Text
    • Science Talk


    Eureka Math:

    Module 4: Number Pairs, Addition, and Subtraction to 10 

    Students will: 

    • compose and decompose numbers to 10 
    • represent decomposition and composition addition stories 
    • represent subtraction story problems 


    Common Core Learning Standards:

    K.OA.A.1 - Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

    K.OA.A.2 - Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

    K.OA.A.3 - Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).

    K.OA.A.4 - For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.

    K.OA.A.5 - Fluently add and subtract within 5.
