For Pre-K students, the Common Core doesn’t outline official standards in Mathematical Practice. But through research and in-depth knowledge of the Common Core, eSpark Learning has developed standards-aligned teaching resources for Pre-K students and teachers. With these, students will have the building blocks necessary to succeed in all the standards they will learn in Kindergarten (and beyond).
Through eSpark’s curriculum, Pre-K students will learn the most basic introductory math skills, including reciting and recognizing numbers. More specifically, students will navigate seven standards — each aligned to one domain: Counting and Cardinality.
Initially, students will learn to recite numbers in order from one through 20. Then, through repetition and practice, students will begin to understand sequences, including which numbers come before or after one another. As their knowledge progresses, Pre-K students will start to work with objects — learning how to count them in different configurations, count how many, and matching them with written numerals.
In the final standards, students will be introduced to comparative language and how to describe groups of objects. They’ll learn phrases such as ‘equal to’ and ‘more or less than’ to compare and contrast collections of objects. Through these lessons, students will better understand the relationship between written numbers and physical quantities.
With the help of eSpark, Pre-K students can get ahead of the learning curve — taking in knowledge 1.5 times faster than their peers. Our engaging activities and videos help teachers take a hands-on approach to standards-aligned learning, ensuring students are more than ready to meet the Common Core goals outlined for them next year.
