Kindergarten Common Core Resources

These tasks are grade-level formative performance assessment tasks aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Some have accompanying scoring rubrics and discussion of student work samples. Others, such as the Dana Center Early Mathematics Tasks, connect to children’s literature.

You may download and use these tasks for professional development purposes without modifying the tasks.

The tasks below are arranged by grade level. To search for tasks by mathematical strand or to see information about alignment to specific standards, use the "shortcuts" field at the top of the page, or visit the Common Core mathematical content standards page.
