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.Another variation is to ask the child to draw. First make some sticks, circles, squares, or other shapes on a page, and encircle them. Make for the child a big "bubble" to draw in, and ask the child to draw either the same amount, one more, or one less. Also have your child practice writing numbers on paper.

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.

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.
