May & June: What is Kindergarten studying?
Module : Toys and Play
Guiding Question: What can we do to make playing together fun?
Unit Summary: Students will build on their literacy and citizenship skills as they engage in a study of toys and play. They learn to sort and describe toys by specific attributes. They also begin to think about perspective as they discuss and write about their own toy preferences using language and ideas from a variety of texts.

Module 5: Numbers 10-20 and Counting

Module 6: Analyzing, Comparing, and Composing Shapes

- compose and decompose shapes
Common Core Learning Standards:
K.CC.A.1 - Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
K.CC.A.2 - Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
K.CC.A.3 - Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
K.CC.B.4 - Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.B.5 - Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
K.NBT.A.1 - Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (such as 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
K.G.B.5 - Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
K.G.B.6 - Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, "Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?"
