Educational Activities and Teaching Resources for Kindergarten

Welcome to kindergarten! Who can forget the days of counting with fingers, writing a few too many backwards 3s, and coming to the realization that a rotated triangle is still a triangle? Kindergarten math standards revolve around the concepts of foundational number sense, basic counting, simple comparisons and operations using objects, sorting skills, definition of measurable attributes, and shape recognition.

As for reading, it’s time to embrace those unforgettable reams of primary ruled paper, bags of cotton balls, and glue sticks galore. What a time to be alive! In kindergarten, students spend the year developing foundational literacy skills so they can move to first grade with the ability to sound out simple words, print letters, understand and recognize phonemes, and comprehend simple texts.
