Kindergarten Measurement and Data Standards Aligned Resources

Kindergarten Math Domain: Measurement and Data

In this domain, Kindergarten students will be introduced to measurement and data in order to describe, compare, and classify objects. With the help of eSpark Learning’s standards-aligned resources, teachers can confidently teach students these brand-new concepts and accelerate their comprehension through fun and engaging videos, interactive games, and practice assignments. Here’s a closer look at each Common Core standard within this domain:

K.MD.2

Longer or Shorter?

In this standard, students will compare and contrast different objects, describing their differences in length using terms like ‘more of’ and ‘less of.’

K.MD.2

Heavy or Light?

Kindergarten students will continue studying objects to identify which ones have ‘more of’ or ‘less of’ mass and weight.

K.MD.3

How Many in Each Group?

Students will use their previous knowledge of categorization to count, classify, and sort various objects into different groups.

K.MD.3

Sort Objects

In this standard, students will continue classifying objects into different categories.

Get Started with Kindergarten Measurement and Data Learning Resources

Measurement and Data is one of five domains included in the Kindergarten math standards. During this phase of learning, students can expect to grow and develop their skills in:

  • Comparing and contrasting different objects
  • Learning the concept of longer vs. shorter
  • Learning the concept of heavier vs. lighter
  • Continuing to categorize, count, and classify different groups of objects

eSpark Learning also supports teachers in the classroom, providing data and progress reports to monitor students’ learning. With this information, teachers are more confident and empowered to fine-tune and tailor their curriculums to maintain a dynamic learning environment and provide individualized lessons as they see fit. 

Below are examples of how eSpark Learning resources are aligned to each Common Core standard within the Kindergarten Measurement and Data domain:

K.MD.2

Longer or Shorter?

Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and describe the difference.

Students can tap into several different instructional videos, practice assignments, and games to compare and sort various objects (including dinosaurs!) in this standard.

Peg and Cat story about size
Dinosaur size matching game
Sesame Street size video

K.MD.2

Heavy or Light?

Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and describe the difference.

In one of eSpark’s engaging games, students will hop aboard the Dinosaur train and use larger and smaller dinosaurs to compare and contrast sizes and weights.

Light and heavy video
Balancing dinosaur food weights

K.MD.3

How Many in Each Group?

Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.

Sorting objects in different ways
Identify objects by color
Sorting objects by shape

K.MD.3

Sort Objects

Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.

Through an interactive game with Peg and Cat, students will practice counting and sorting simultaneously by putting letters in mailboxes.

Sorting objects by color
Sorting by type of object
Sorting stickers by object
