LEARNING STANDARDS INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE

Common Core Standards

Language Arts

CCSSL.K.2d
Spell simple words phonetically, drawing on knowledge of sound-letter relationships.
CCSSRF.K.2e
Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.
CCSSRF.K.2d
Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words. (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
CCSSRI.K.10
Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding.
CCSSW.K.8
With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.

Math

CCSSK.CC.A.2
Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
CCSSK.MD.B.3
Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
CCSSK.OA.A.1
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
CCSSK.OA.A.2
Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

Next Generation Science Standards

NGSSK-ESS3-1
Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live. Examples of relationships could include that deer eat buds and leaves, therefore, they usually live in forested areas; and, grasses need sunlight so they often grow in meadows. Plants, animals, and their surroundings make up a system.
