This 3-day activity reinforces what students have learned about animals. The activities focus on pets: cats, dogs, birds, and fish. Main Curriculum Tie: English Language Arts Kindergarten Reading: Literature Standard 2, with prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details. Activities in this unit reinforce what students have learned throughout the year about animals. For each activity, a different group of animals is studied. These activities focus on pets: cats, dogs, birds, and fish. Students will re-read both fiction and non-fiction stories that have been previously introduced during the school year. As they read the books, they will have activities to complete in order to earn their “badge” for that animal. Each student will make a paper bag vest on which they will be able to display badges they have earned.

Expressing Thoughts and Feelings
Conditions of Use:

Students will explore five different "Discovery Buckets". These buckets will give them opportunities to practice expressing both their thoughts and feelings. Main Curriculum Tie: English Language Arts Kindergarten Speaking and Listening Standard 6, Speak audibly and express thoughts, feelings, and ideas clearly. We recognize that an increased ability to communicate thoughts and feelings gives children the skills they need in their interactions with others. Acceptance by peers is not only correlated with positive attitudes toward school; it is a powerful predictor of social adjustment throughout life. This lesson helps children understand their emotions and how to appropriately express thoughts and feelings with others.

Prekindergarten Mathematics Module 4: Comparison of Length, Weight, Capacity, and Numbers to 5
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

In the first half of this module, students identify measurable attributes of objects in terms of length, weight, and capacity.  Students learn words such as small, big, short, tall, empty, full, heavy, and light so that they will have the vocabulary needed to describe objects (PK.MD.1).  The comparison of length, weight, and capacity naturally leads to discussions about quantity and number.  In the second half, measurement is connected to quantity as students reason if there are enough, more than, less than, or the same number of objects in a set using matching and counting strategies (PK.CC.5).  Comparing concrete sets leads to comparing quantities and abstract numbers.  Children will also focus on identifying first and last in quantities up to 5 and 10 in different configurations (PK.CC.6).

Prekindergarten Mathematics Module 5: Addition and Subtraction Stories and Counting to 20
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Module 5 is the culmination of children’s work with number in the Pre-K year.  Throughout Modules 1 and 3, they had extensive counting experiences with numbers 0–10.  In Module 4, they examined the relationships between numbers 1–5 through comparison.  In Module 5, children transition from the comparative concept of more (4 apples is more than 1 apple) to the concept of addition (3 apples and 1 more apple make 4 apples).  They are ready to begin work with operations, focusing on addition and subtraction stories with numbers 1 to 5.  Students will also learn to write numerals 0-5 and explore patterns in this final module.

Prekindergarten Module 1:  Counting to 5
Conditions of Use:

Module 1 capitalizes on the energy and excitement young students have as they enter their first day of Pre-K by providing a playful and active yet carefully sequenced structure through which children progress.  In this module, we set up a friendly learning environment in which children have sustained interaction with four core ideas, collectively referred to as the number core:  rote counting (the number word list), one-to-one correspondence (one object paired with one number word), cardinality (how many in a set), and written numerals.  Throughout the module, children have experiences that help them make critical connections between these four understandings.

Prekindergarten Module 2: Shapes
Conditions of Use:

In Module 2, in the context of classroom play, children learn to identify, describe, sort, compare, and create two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) shapes and objects. Children develop vocabulary to describe the relative position of objects (e.g., top, bottom, up, down, in front of, behind, over, under, and next to), building foundational spatial reasoning abilities. In Module 1, students developed an understanding of numbers to 5. In Module 2, students practice these counting skills in the context of geometry (counting sides, corners, a group of triangles, etc.).

Conditions of Use:

Module 3 challenges students to build on their work with numbers through 5 to make sense of and count groups of 0, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 objects. Students also continue their work with the number core in the following ways (PK.CC.1–4): Rote counting (the number word list up to 15); one-to-one correspondence (one object paired with one number word from 0 to 10); cardinality (how many in a set of up to 10 objects); andnumber recognition (matching written numerals 0, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 to quantities). Throughout the module, children participate in engaging experiences that help them make critical connections between these four understandings.
