## Reflection: Lesson Planning Babies & Big Boy Feet - Section 5: Closure

In Common Core State Standards, not all standards are equal. There are critical and introductory areas of study. Critical areas of study in kindergarten are reflected in counting, operations (fluency to five, adding and subtracting to 10), and a basic understanding in numbers in base ten to prepare a foundation for place value. Measurement is to be introduced and kids should have a basic understanding of how to measure and compare, but the meat of this standard comes in first grade and beyond.

Critical, what's that?
