Standards of Learning Objectives



Sorting and Classifying:

K.1  The student will sort and classify objects according to one attribute.

- Can sort by color, shape, and size

Number Sense:

The students will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to:

K.1a Tell how many are in a given set of 20 or fewer objects by counting orally.

K.1b Read write and represent numbers from 0 through 20.

 K.2a Given no more than three sets, each containing 10 or fewer objects, compare and describe one set as having more, fewer, or the same number of objects as the other set(s).

K.2b Given no more than three sets, each containing 10 or fewer objects, compare and order sets from least to greatest and greatest to least.

 K.3a Count forward orally by ones from 0 to 100.

K.3c Identify the number after, without counting, when given any number between 0 and 100 and identify the number before, without counting, when given any number between 1 and 10.

 K.3d Count forward by tens to determine the total number of objects to 100.

K.4a Recognize and describe with fluency part-whole relationships for numbers up to 5.

K.4b Investigate and describe part-whole relationships for numbers up to 10.

K.6 Model and solve single-step story and picture problems with sums to 10 and differences within 10, using concrete objects.

K.7 Recognize the attributes of a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter and identify the number of pennies equivalent to a nickel, a dime, and a quarter.

Fractions (Fair Share)

K.5 Investigate fractions by representing and solving practical problems involving equal sharing with two sharers.

            - can share a whole (in half) with two shares

            - can represent fair shares concretely or pictorially


 K.3  The student will identify, say, segment, and blend various units of sound.

 K.4  The student will understand how print is organized.

 K.5  The student will demonstrate an understanding that print conveys meaning.

 K.6  The student will develop an understanding of basic phonetic principles.

 K. 7 The student will expand vocabulary and use of word meanings.

 K.8  The student will demonstrate the comprehension of fictional texts.

          - identifies the role of the illustrator and the author

          - use story elements of characters, settings, and events to retell stories sequentially using beginning, middle, and end


K. 10 The student prints manuscript.

            - print first and last name correctly

            - print neatly (correct letter formation)

K.11  The student will write in a variety of forms to include narrative and descriptive.

            - uses illustrations to prewrite (picture matches the sentence)

            - uses known letters to phonetically spell words (logical beginning and ending sounds; beginning to put middle sounds in words)

            - mechanics (uses capital at the beginning and a period at the end; uses spaces between most of the words; the sentence makes sense )



Properties of Matter

K.4  The student will investigate and understand the position, motion, and physical properties of an object can be described by color, texture, size, weight; and relative positions and speed of objects.

Living and Nonliving Things

K.7  The student will investigate and understand the basic needs and life processes of plants and animals.

            b) what plants need to survive; Can describe that plants need nutrients, water, air, light, and a place to grow to survive

            c) lifecycle of a pumpkin; Can explain how pumpkins change as they grow, have varied life cycles, and eventually die


K.3  The student will investigate and understand that magnets have an effect on some materials, make some things move without touching them.  Key vocabulary: magnet, push, pull, attract, repel, metal.

Five Senses

K.5 The student will investigate and understand that humans have senses that allow them to seek, find, take in, and react or respond to different information. 

            - Identifies the five senses and corresponding sensing organs: taste, touch, hearing, smell, eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin

            - Describes objects using sensory descriptors:  sweet, sour, bitter, salty, rough, smooth, hard, soft, cold warm, hot, loud, soft, high, low, faint, bad, good, dull, bright

Properties of Water

K.5 The student will investigate and understand that water flows and has properties that can be observed and tested.

Key concepts include:

a) water occurs in different phases (solid, liquid, gas)

b) water flows downhill; and

c) some materials float in water, while others sink.

Shadow and Light

K.8. The student will investigate and understand that shadows occur when light is blocked by an object.

Key concepts include:

 a) shadows occur in nature when sunlight is blocked by an object; and     

 b) shadows can be produced by blocking artificial light sources.
