Preschool Math Worksheets

Since there is no set preschool curriculum, at least in the eyes of the Core Curriculum Initiative, we improvised a little. We worked with several past national and every state draft of preschool curriculum that we could get my hands on. All the work here is aligned to the Core as precursory skills for achieving kindergarten standards. We also have Preschool Math Posters for your class walls.

Precursory Skills For Counting

What Math Skills Do Students Learn in Preschool? The math curriculum of early childhood education is designed to provide a firm foundation that children need for preschool and beyond. The focus of mathematical skills should be on building and reinforcing basic skills that will later help in building advanced skills. The preschool sets the foundation for future mathematical skills. Here are the mathematical skills that children are commonly taught in preschool. Counting - Preschool children start their mathematical experience by learning numbers. They begin counting different items to understand one-to-one correspondence better. They will also learn to compare sets of different objects with varying numbers of items. In addition, the use of appropriate language to describe the sets of items and writing the numerals are also taught. Addition and Subtraction - Preschool is the earliest stage of learning addition and subtraction the focus at this level is on making the students grasp the basic concept of addition and subtraction. Student s will learn ‘putting together' as addition and ‘taking from or apart' as the concept of subtraction. At this level, students aren't asked to write the equations or sums for solving the problem; they only need to observe the problem. Measurement and data - As they start their mathematical experiment, the young children will start comparing things around them. This is where the concept of measurement and data is utilized. At preschool level, students will learn to classify different objects, sort them into different classes, and form different groups of similar objects.
