Show alignments for:

K.A demonstrate an understanding of number, using concrete materials to explore and investigate counting, quantity, and number relationships;

K.B measure and compare length, mass, capacity, area, temperature of objects/materials, and the passage of time, using non-standard units, through free exploration, focused exploration, and guided activity;

K.C describe, sort, classify, and compare two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional figures, and describe the location and movement of objects through investigation;

K.D explore, recognize, describe, and create patterns, using a variety of materials in different contexts;

K.E sort, classify, and display a variety of concrete objects, collect data, begin to read and describe displays of data, and begin to explore the concept of probability in everyday contexts.

K Number Sense and Numeration (Quantity Relationships; Counting; Operational Sense)

K Measurement (Attributes,Units, and Measurement Sense; Measurement Relationships)

  • K.13 compare and order two or more objects according to an appropriate measure (e.g., length, mass, area, temperature, capacity), and use measurement terms (e.g., hot/cold for temperature, small/medium/large for capacity, longer/shorter or thicker/thinner for length)

  • K.14 demonstrate, through investigation, an awareness of the use of different measurement tools for measuring different things (e.g., a balance is used for measuring mass, a tape measure for measuring length, a sandglass for measuring time)

  • K.15 demonstrate awareness of non-standard measuring devices (e.g., feet, hand spans, string, or cubes to measure length; hand claps to measure time; scoops of water or sand to measure capacity) and strategies for using them (e.g., place common objects end to end; use cubes to plan the length of a road at the sand table or the block centre; measure the distance between the classroom and the water fountain in number of footsteps)

  • K.16 demonstrate, through investigation, a beginning understanding of the use of non-standard units of the same size (e.g., straws, paper clips)

K Geometry and Spatial Sense (Geometric Properties; Geometric Relationships; Location and Movement)

K Patterning (Patterns and Relationships)

K Data Management and Probability (Collection and Organization of Data;Data Relationships; Probability)
