Kindergarten Math Learning

At a Kindergarten age, children love to play and explore Math with fun Math activities and games. Children will enjoy completing these Math games and worksheets whilst learning at the same time.

During Kindergarten, children have already started to develop their understanding of numbers and place value. By the end of Kindergarten, most children should be able to count, read and write up to the number 25, and compare numbers up to 10.

They are also starting to learn the names of some of the basic shapes, comparing the length and weight of different objects and learning to sort and classify them.

The free printable Kindergarten Math Games, and other Math activies will help your child to achieve their Elementary Math benchmark set out by Achieve, Inc.

In the UK, Kindergarten is equivalent to Year 1.
