Kindergarten Math at Home
Welcome! We’ll update this page every weekday with a new math activity. Many of the activities will be fun and worthwhile for students of all ages so that you can do them as a family. The following day, we’ll share examples of how other people did the activity so you can check your work and stretch your thinking.
The resources on this page focus on the major work for kindergarten:
counting to 100 by 1 and 10, and reading and writing numbers to 20
solving problems that involve adding and subtracting within 10
understanding that teen numbers always have a group of 10 and some more ones
We’ll do a lot of work with shapes and patterns, too!
Math in Our World: How Many Marbles?
Hayden and Charlotte love to build tracks for their marbles. We wondered how many marbles we had in our home, so we decided to count all the marbles we could find.
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Show or tell what is happening using pictures, numbers, or words.
What math questions can you ask about the picture? Answer all the questions you can!
How could you get started?
Draw a number line starting at 64 and count on.
Draw a ten-frame to organize and count the number of marbles outside the jar.
Show your work to someone else, and explain your thinking. Did they understand?
Ask whether they have any other questions you can answer!
We have a lot of marbles at our house so we made a counting collection. Can you make your own counting collection? You could use rocks, toys, or even food!
