Pre-K:  What your child is learning this marking period...
    English Language Arts: 

    Strand: Reading for Literature

    With prompting and support, identify the reasons an author gives to support points in a text.

    Strand: Writing

    With guidance and support from adults, respond to questions and suggestions from peers and add details to strengthen writing as needed.

    With guidance and support from adults, explore a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.

    Counting and Cardinality (CC)

    Know number names and the count sequence

    Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1)

    Identify and name numerals 1-9.


    Count to tell the number of objects

    Subitize to determine how many: immediate recognition of small quantities up to 6.

    Understand that the last number name spoken tells the number of objects counted up to10. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.

    Compare numbers

    Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than or equal to the number of objects in another group up to 10

    Compare two numbers between 1 and 5 when presented as written numerals.


    Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA)

    Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from

    Construct sets up to 10 with more or fewer objects than a given set; join two sets of objects to make one large set.


    Measurement and Data (MD)

    Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Sort, order and classify by one attribute

    Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common to see which object has “more of”/”less of” the attribute and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

    Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category

    Classify objects into given categories; count the number of objects in each category and sort the categories by count. Limit total number of objects to 10.

    Geometry (G)
    Identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders and spheres)

    Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind and next to.

    Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (solid).

     Analyze, compare, create and compose shapes.

    Analyze and compare two-and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts and other attributes.

    Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components and drawing shapes.

    Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes.
