Quick Image Math Routine: Kindergarten

Grade K / Math / Tch DIY
CCSS: Math.K.OA.A.3

Common Core State Standards






Operations & Algebraic Thinking


Understand addition, and understand subtraction


Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).

Drawings need not show details, but should show the mathematics in the problem. (This applies wherever drawings are mentioned in the Standards.)

A quick image encourages students to develop flexibility with numbers through subitizing, decomposing, and recomposing a set of dots.
