Mathematics for Kindergarten

Toddlers learn several topics throughout the year. Just keeping up with each night's homework and its newest ideas can seem very strange. As a parent, you do not get to see the main idea after the "everyday" work, and it can be frustrating to know where each skill is going. No worry. Here are the four major Kindergarten math concepts taught in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten that you can follow with your children to strengthen their learning.


Students can start with experiencing numbers through counting, number names and written numerals. Students should learn to count things and get one-to-one communication. Therefore, it is best to encourage your child to touch various objects and count aloud.

Addition & Subtraction

This is the very early step of adding and subtracting. The focus should be on developing knowledge of addition as "placing together and appending to," and subtracting as "catching apart and choosing from." Students do not need to sign equating at this tender age but are inspired to begin using them. You can encourage your child to count to 10 and break apart numbers into different combinations.

Measurement & Data

Young children should start with describing and comparing their physical world. They should classify, sort and group things into sections. It is best to encourage your children to compare two different objects using appropriate language. Like, short or tall.


Students are starting to look at and compare two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. They should use appropriate language to recognize different shapes and talk about their properties.
