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 sevendigit 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 onedigit number without regrouping
 Multiply two, three and four through seven digit numbers by a onedigit 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.
