# Discovery

## (ages 3, 4, 5)

### Number Sense

#### Operations, Patterns, Variables

- Rote counting to 10
- Recognizes numerals to 10
- Counts objects to 10 with one-to-one correspondence
- Makes marks to represent numbers or equations
- Recognizes patterns
- Extends single variable patterns

### Geometry and Measurement

- Recognizes basic shapes
- Builds basic shapes
- Draws circles
- Sorts objects by one attribute
- Compares relative size of objects (bigger, smaller, equal, etc...)
- Uses descriptive language (size, speed, temperature, etc...)

### Statistics and Probability

- Collects and counts objects or data
- Contributes data to a pictorial graph

# Developing

## (ages 5, 6, 7)

### Number Sense

#### Operations, Patterns, Variables

- Rote counting to 100
- Counts objects beyond 20 with one-to-one correspondence
- Compares and orders numbers to 100
- Groups units into sets of ten
- Uses a combination of tens and ones to build two digit numbers
- Recognizes, interprets and records addition equations

### Geometry and Measurement

- Combines 2-D shapes to form different shapes
- Sorts objects by 2 or more attributes
- Uses language to describe relative location (above, below, beside, etc...)
- Recognizes symmetry
- Measures length, width and height using non-standard units
- Uses time vocabulary (yesterday, today, tomorrow)

### Statistics and Probability

- Adds information to graphs and charts
- Compares and contrasts findings
