# Math Overview

Hello Teachers,

Thanks for checking in with us this week! Let’s take a quick Math overview at elementary math K-5.

As educators, we all know how important math is in our students’ lives. It’s the foundation of so many skills and concepts that will serve them well throughout their lives. As elementary teachers, it’s our responsibility to provide our students with a solid foundation in math that will set them up for success as they continue their education.

In this blog post, I want to cover some of the basics of elementary K-5 math by grade level. While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to teaching math, there are some general concepts and skills that students should master at each grade level. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect to teach in each grade:

## Kindergarten Math Overview

In kindergarten, students will be introduced to basic math concepts such as counting, identifying numbers, and understanding basic shapes. They’ll also learn about patterns and sequencing, which are important skills for building a strong foundation in math.

In first grade, students will build on the skills they learned in kindergarten. They’ll learn to add and subtract single-digit numbers and will begin to understand the concept of place value. They’ll also continue to work on their understanding of patterns and sequencing.

In second grade, students will focus on mastering addition and subtraction of two-digit numbers. They’ll also be introduced to concepts like measurement (including time, length, weight, and volume) and money. This is a critical year for building a strong foundation in math, as many of the concepts learned in second grade will be built upon in later grades.

In third grade, students will continue to work on their addition and subtraction skills, but will also begin to learn multiplication and division. They’ll also focus on more advanced measurement concepts, such as perimeter and area. Additionally, students will learn about fractions and how to identify and compare them.
