Developing an aptitude for performing mathematical operations and instituting algebraic thinking is a task that gets increasingly challenging as a student advances from kindergarten to fifth grade. The introduction of addition and subtraction requires conceptualizing the respective composition and breakdown of quantities. These quantities increase and the links to multiplication and division are created in second grade. By fourth grade, there is an awareness of patterns and familiarity with factors. VocabularySpellingCity can guide a student through this progressive transition with elementary online math games and activities.

The math vocabulary lists are based on the Common Core Elementary Math Standards. VocabularySpellingCity has selected the elementary math words that apply to the key math concepts and written level-appropriate elementary math definitions combined with meaningful example sentences. Elementary students can use these materials for reinforcement to build understanding or assessment. Teachers can import the lists into their account and then edit or extend the lists for their own purposes.

  • Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
  • Understand and apply properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
  • Add and subtract within 20.
  • Work with addition and subtraction equations.
  • Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
  • Add and subtract within 20.
  • Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication.
  • Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division.
  • Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division.
  • Multiply and divide within 100.
  • Solve problems involving the four operations, and identify and explain patterns in arithmetic.
  • Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.
  • Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.
  • Generate and analyze patterns.
