Archdiocese of New York Kindergarten Mathematics Parent Matrix
This 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 & Cardinality
Operations & Algebraic
Thinking
Number & Operations –
Base Ten
Measurement & Data
Geometry
These standards focus on
students’ understanding that
numbers represent quantities.
They will learn to sequence,
count, and compare numbers.
These standards focus on
relationships among
numbers and quantities –
including patterns,
functions, and operations
(addition, subtraction, etc).
These standards pertain to
representations of numbers
and the relationships
between them.
They focus
on place value and number
systems (the way we name
and represent numbers).
These standards pertain to
students’ ability to use
different strategies and
mathematical tools such as
rulers and clocks to
measure lengths and time
and interpret and represent
data in different ways (e.g.
on a number line, bar graph,
picture graph, etc).
These standards require
students to examine, describe,
and produce both 2-D and 3-D
geometric shapes (e.g. circles,
triangles, rectangles).

Count to 100 by 1s
and 10s
Kindergarteners are fascinated with
counting, often before they know how to
count. This enthusiasm provides an ideal
environment for learning to count to 100.
