Attributes, Sorting,Classifying, and Data
(September) 

Group the shapes by attributes

Sort objects into given categories

Match and sort shapes

Sort objects into given categories

Compare categories using words such as greater than/more, less than, and equal to/same


2 
Understanding Number Relationships 05
(October  November) 
 Count verbally to 5 by ones
 Recognize the concept of just after or just before a given number in the counting sequence up to 5
 Recognize written numerals 05
 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities to 5; connect counting to cardinality
 When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name
 Recognize that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted
 Represent a number (05) by producing a set of objects with concrete materials, pictures, and/or numerals (with 0 representing a count of no objects)
 Recognize the number of objects in a set without counting (Subitizing)
 Explore relationships by comparing groups of objects up to 5, to determine greater than/more or less than, and equal to/same
 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies


3 
Shapes, Patterns, and Positional Language
(December  January) 
 Match like (congruent and similar) shapes
 Group the shapes by attributes
 Correctly name shapes (regardless of their orientations or overall size)
 Match and sort shapes
 Describe threedimensional objects using attributes

4 
Measurement
(February) 
 Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight
 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, using words such as longer/shorter; heavier/lighter; or taller/shorter


5 
Understanding Number Relationships 010
(March  April) 
 Count verbally to 10 by ones
 Recognize the concept of just after or just before a given number in the counting sequence up to 10.
 Recognize written numerals 010
 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities to 10; connect counting to cardinality.
 When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name.
 Recognize that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted.
 Recognize that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
 Represent a number (05, then to 10) by producing a set of objects with concrete materials, pictures, and/or numerals (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
 Explore relationships by comparing groups of objects up to 10, to determine greater than/more or less than, and equal to/same
 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies (includes groups with up to 5 objects).
 Investigate the relationship between ten ones and ten.


6 
Addition and Subtraction
(May  June) 
 Explore addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, or verbal explanations.
 Decompose quantity (less than or equal to 5, then to 10) into pairs in more than one way (e.g., by using objects or drawings).
 For any given quantity from (0 to 5, then to 10) find the quantity that must be added to make 5, then to 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings.
