Parent Guide to the Florida Kindergarten Math Standards (MAFS):English: goo.gl/ut8wgQ Spanish: goo.gl/MX7ZjI |

**Helping at Home:**- Count with every day objects (think: steps, number of items in the grocery cart)

-Have your child help sort laundry into piles

-Practice addition and subtraction with every day objects ("If I have 5 chips and add 4 more, how many do I have now?")

-Be on the lookout for geometric shapes and name them

-Find ways to create lists and drawings and number them
