    Math Standard 4.1: Children begin to demonstrate an understanding of number and counting

    ·         Count to 20 by ones with minimal prompting (4.1.1)

    ·         Recognize and name one digit written numbers up to 10 with minimal prompting (4.1.2)

    ·         Know that written numbers are symbols for number quantities and, with support, begin to write numbers from 0 to 10 (4.1.3)

    ·         Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities (4.1.4)

    ·         Use one to one correspondence to solve problems by matching sets and comparing amounts (4.1.5)

    ·         Compare groups of up to 5 objects (4.1.6)

    Math Standard 4.2: Children demonstrate an initial understanding of numerical operations

    ·         Represent addition and subtraction by manipulating up to 5 objects (3 blue pegs and 2 yellow pegs make 5 pegs altogether) (4.2.1)

    ·         Begin to represent simple word problem data in pictures and drawings (4.2.2)

    Math Standard 4.3: Children begin to conceptualize measureable attributes of objects and how to measure them

    ·         Sort, order, pattern, and classify objects by non-measurable and measurable attributes (4.3.1)

    ·         Begin to use appropriate vocabulary to demonstrate awareness of the measurable attributes of length, area, weight and capacity of everyday objects (long, short, tall, light, heavy, full) (4.3.2)

    ·         Compare (which holds more)  and order (shortest to longest) up to 5 objects according to measurable attributes (4.3.3)

    Math Standard 4.4: Children develop spatial and geometric sense

    ·         Respond to and use positional words (in, under, between, down, behind) (4.4.1)

    ·         Use accurate terms to name and describe some two-dimensional shapes and begin to use accurate terms to name and describe some three-dimensional shapes (circle, square, triangle, sphere, cylinder, cube, side point, angle) (4.4.2)

    ·         Manipulate, compare and discuss the attributes of two dimensional shapes (make designs, patterns and pictures, match identical shapes, sort shapes, describe shapes) and three dimensional shapes by building blocks and with other materials having height, width and depth (unit blocks, hollow blocks, attribute blocks, boxes, empty food containers, plastic pipe) (4.4.3)
