A new series of Learning Standards will be implemented into our curriculum starting at Kindergarten. They are called the Common Core Standards and they will be used Nationwide by all schools. We are using a math series called GoMath that covers all the math standards expected by the students in Kindergarten. Some of the concepts might be above them, but we are exposing them to the concepts they will learn later. For more imformation about the Common Core standards and to view the standards check out the following links:

Making math problems with our two color counters.

Telling our partners about our math problems

Each partner rolled their own dice and then they had to use the math word wall words: greater than, less than, or same number to discuss what they rolled.

Very excited that he had the greatest number!
