In the Engage Ny Kindergarten curriculum, students make discoveries about math in the world around them and the role that numbers play in many of our daily activities. Through lessons, stories, art projects, and hands-on experiences, students develop their number sense. Learning to recognize and write numbers to 100 is taught in many of the daily lessons, which are supported by hands-on activities, number stories, computer activities, and Smartboard lessons. Children are encouraged to explore and expand on the basic concept of numbers to 100, through applicable skills, such as reading a calendar, measuring, counting the days of school,and various other counting experiences.In addition, the children are recognizing, comparing, and ordering numbers 0 to 100, understanding addition and subtraction, as well as, composing and decomposing numbers. They then delve into exploring measurement, sorting, classifying, counting, and categorizing data. Lastly, they will discover how to describe the position and location of shapes, as well as analyzing ,comparing, identifying, and composing of shapes. The Engage NY Math Program covers a sequential development of skills by providing many practical experiences that can be found in various math centers, group lessons, projects, and Smartboard activities, which help students make real-life connections to mathematical concepts.
