Kindergarten Mathematics Module 1, Topic A

boy at school

The first day of kindergarten is long anticipated by parents and young students. In Topic A, Lesson 1, students reason about matching pairs of objects. Some of the pairs are exactly the same and some are similiar but differ by color, size, position, etc. In Lesson 2, this concept is deepened by asking the students to identify attributes of the matching pairs that either make them exactly the same or similar but different because they are a different color or in a different position. Topic A culminates with Lesson 3 by guiding the students to reason about pairing two objects according to their visual pattern, color, or use (K.MD.3).
