 Overview 
 Curriculum 
Using Montessori learning materials, Kindergarten students learn the following skills:

Linear Counting

  • Recognize factors of ten
  • Recognize numerals 11 to 19 and count from 11 to 19 by units
  • Count by tens to ninety and by units to one hundred
  • Linear count the squares of the numbers from one to ten and record them on number rolls
  • Skip count the squares of the numbers from one to ten (that is, count by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's, 9's, 10's) and record them on number rolls
  • Linear count the cubes of the numbers from one to ten and record them on number rolls
  • Skip count the cubes of the numbers from one to ten (that is, count by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's, 9's, 10's) and record them on number rolls
  • Name the squares and cubes of the numbers one through ten

The concepts of the four Operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division

  • Explore the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division using concrete materials.

Addition

  • Begin with the use of concrete materials moving to abstraction to learn the addition facts to ten, then to twenty. The communicative properties of addition will also be learned.
  • Add three vertical numbers and then many numbers
  • Add two, three and four digit numerals (through 7 digit addends without regrouping)
  • Add two, three and four through seven-digit addends with regrouping

Subtraction

  • Begin with the use of concrete materials moving to abstraction to learn the basic subtraction facts: relationships between the numbers one through eighteen
  • Subtract two, three and four through seven digit numbers without regrouping
  • Subtract two, three and four through seven digit numbers with regrouping

Addition and Subtraction

  • Missing Sign of the Operation problems

Multiplication

  • Multiply two, three and four through seven digit numbers by a one-digit number without regrouping
  • Multiply two, three and four through seven digit numbers by a one-digit number with regrouping

Fractions

  • Become familiar with the use of fractions in everyday life.

Measurement

  • Read time on a clock, both regular and digital
  • Measure the physical properties of matter: length, weight, volume, temperature, and solve word problems involving these measurements and appropriate nomenclature

Money

  • Identify units of currency (coins and bills), count money, and make change

Geometry

  • Sensorial exploration of plane and solid geometric figures
  • Explore a variety of solid geometric shapes and plane figures.

Classified Nomenclature

  • Learn the nomenclature of a variety of plane and solid geometric figures
  • Learn the nomenclature and demonstrate line symmetry; bisection of a line segment; a line perpendicular to another line; a line parallel to another line; the difference between a line, segment and ray
  • Learn the nomenclature and how to measure the types of angles used to form plane and solid geometric figures

Handwriting

  • Develop fine motor control in preparation for handwriting
  • Master the ability to write in manuscript both lower and upper case letters with appropriate spacing within a word and between words.
