The goal of kindergarten math curriculum is to prepare children for first grade math:

~ To count by rote at least to 20, but preferably a little beyond.

~ The concepts of equality, more, and less.

~ To count backwards from 10 to 0.

~ To recognize numbers.

~ To be able to write numbers.

~ To recognize basic shapes.

~ To understand up, down, under, near, on the side, etc. (basic directions).

~ To understand the concepts of addition and subtraction with small numbers.

~ Expose the student to two-digit numbers.You do not necessarily need to purchase a specific curriculum for kindergarten math. To recognize shapes and practice matching, you can either use ready-made worksheets or workbooks, or make some of your own.

If you make your own, you can just draw three circles on a page and then 2-5 triangles on a page, and ask the child to match each circle with a triangle by drawing a line from shape to shape. Vary the shapes and the amounts. Sometimes the amounts should be equal, sometimes not.

Children may also get started with money, time, and measuring, though it is not absolutely necessary to master any of that. The teacher should keep it playful, supply measuring cups, scales, clocks, and coins to have around, and answer questions.
