Theme 3: Giants
Children love big things. In this theme they will explore manmade big things, naturemade big things, and imaginary big things. During the first week of this theme, the children will learn about big and little and how sometimes perspective is a factor.
Mathematics covered in this theme:
Counting and Cardinality
 PK.CC.1 Count verbally to 10 by ones.
 PK.CC.2 Recognize the concept of just after or just before a given number in the counting sequence up to 10.
 PK.CC.3 Identify written numerals 010.
 PK.CC.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities to 5, then to 10; connect counting to cardinality.
 PK.CC.4.a When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name.
 PK.CC.4b Recognize that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted.
 PK.CC.7 Explore relationships by comparing groups of objects up to 5 and then 10.
Operations & Algebraic Thinking
 PK.OA.1 Explore addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds, acting out situations, or verbal explanations.
Number and Operations in Base Ten
 PK.NBT.1 Investigate the relationship between ten ones and ten.
?
Measurement and Data
 PK.MD.1 Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight.
 PK.MD.2 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, using words such as longer/shorter; heavier/lighter; or taller/shorter.
 PK.MD.3 Sort objects into selfselected and given categories.
 PK.MD.4 Compare categories using words such as more or same.
Standards for Mathematical Practice
 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
 4. Model with mathematics.
 6. Attend to precision.
 8. Looks for regularity in repeated reasoning.

Theme 2: My Family and Friends
Children will learn about the diversity of families and family dwellings. They will discover the essence of friendship and that family pets are sometimes among their best friends. From friends at home to friends at school and finally friends within the community, students develop and understanding of diversity, love, support, comfort, helplessness, and cooperation.

 PK.CC.4b Recognize that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted.
 PK.CC.6 Recognize the number of objects in a set without counting (Subitizing). (Use 15 objects)
Measurement and Data
 PK.MD.1 Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight.
 PK.MD.2 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, using words such as longer/shorter; heavier/lighter; or taller/shorter.
 PK.MD.3 Sort objects into selfselected and given categories.
Geometry
 PK.G.1 Match like (congruent and similar) shapes.
 PK.G.2 Group shapes by attribute.
 PK.G.3 Match and sort threedimensional shapes.
 PK.G.4 Describe threedimensional objects using attributes.
 PK.G.5 Compose and describe structures using threedimensional shapes. Descriptions may include shape attributes, relative position, etc.
Standards for Mathematical Practice
 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
 4. Model with mathematics.
 5. Use appropriate tools strategically
 6. Attend to precision.
 7. Looks for regularity in repeated reasoning.

Theme 1: My School and Me
This unit introduces students to school routines and to the adventures that they will encounter as they begin their educational journey. Students will meet school personnel, learn about school rules androutines, sing songs, play games, listen to engaging stories, begin navigating their social setting and interacting with theirpeers. Students learn abouttheir physical bodies nd explore the onders of their thoughts and feelings.
