They should know their addition and subtraction facts to 12, and be able to add and subtract numbers up to 100. They can solve addition and subtraction problems with numbers up to 20.

They should also know the values of the U.S. coins: penny, nickel, dime, quarter, dollar bill, and be able to count amounts of money up to $1 in cents, and $10 in dollars.
