Archdiocese of New York Kindergarten Mathematics Parent MatrixThis parent matrix is intended to be a tool for you as a parent to help support your child’s learning. The table below contains all of the Kindergarten Mathematics learning standards. Learning standards describe the knowledge and skills that students should master by the end of Kindergarten. Each standard has a specific code. For example, K.CC.1 stands for “Kindergarten Counting and Cardinality Standard 1.” You will often see these standards referenced on your child’s quizzes, worksheets, tests, etc. You should access the recommended resources in the right hand “Resources” column electronically by clicking on the hyperlinks provided.However, we suggest that you also download and print this matrix.You will notice that the column all the way to the left is marked “Parent Notes.” You can use this column to take notes on your child’s progress. You may wish to check off each standard after you have worked on it with your child. In Kindergarten Mathematics, there are five main domains of standards. These include Counting & Cardinality, Operations & Algebraic Thinking, Number & Operations in Base Ten, Measurement & Data, and Geometry. Each category is highlighted in a different color. Your child’s teacher will be able to tell you which standards you should focus on with your child throughout the year.We hope that this parent matrix is a valuable resource for you. If you find that you would like additional practice materials to work on you can use the standard codes provided below to search for additional resources. Counting & CardinalityOperations & AlgebraicThinkingNumber & Operations –Base TenMeasurement & DataGeometryThese standards focus onstudents’ understanding thatnumbers represent quantities.They will learn to sequence,count, and compare numbers. These standards focus onrelationships amongnumbers and quantities –including patterns,functions, and operations(addition, subtraction, etc).These standards pertain torepresentations of numbersand the relationshipsbetween them. They focuson place value and numbersystems (the way we nameand represent numbers).These standards pertain tostudents’ ability to usedifferent strategies andmathematical tools such asrulers and clocks tomeasure lengths and timeand interpret and representdata in different ways (e.g.on a number line, bar graph,picture graph, etc).These standards requirestudents to examine, describe,and produce both 2-D and 3-Dgeometric shapes (e.g. circles,triangles, rectangles).

This enthusiasm provides an ideal environment for learning to count to 100.
