K Mathematics

In Kindergarten, students gain conceptual understanding of math concepts through the Bridges in Mathematics program, which focuses on developing a deep conceptual understanding of math as well as forming a foundation for strong number sense and mathematical reasoning skills through the use of manipulatives, games, and interactive exploration.  

Taught with a combination of direct, explicit instruction, and individual and small group work, students are challenged at their own level and pace through differentiated games and activities guided by ongoing assessments. 

Teacher-led lessons are used to introduce new topics, including identifying and writing numbers to 40, comparing numbers (greater than, less than, equal to), adding and subtracting fluently, identifying and counting pennies, nickels, and dimes and exchanging those for an equal value, skip counting, telling time to the hour, and identifying odd and even numbers. 

In number corner, Kindergarten students learn mathematical concepts primarily using the calendar as a reference. Specifically, students learn about patterns by identifying dates, days of the week, and months of the year. They also focus on place value by keeping track of the days of school, group numbers by 10s, 100s, etc., and use the 10-frame to further develop their number sense.

At their work places, students participate - either individually or with a partner - in hands-on games that reinforce their skills.
