LEARNING STANDARDS INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE

Common Core Standards

Language Arts

CCSSL.K.1a
Print many upper- and lowercase letters.
CCSSRF.K.1d
Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
CCSSRF.K.2
Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).
CCSSRF.K.2b
Count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words.
CCSSRF.K.3c
Read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does).
CCSSRL.K.3
With prompting and support, identify characters, settings, and major events in a story.
CCSSW.K.3
Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to narrate a single event or several loosely linked events, tell about the events in the order in which they occurred, and provide a reaction to what happened.

Math

CCSSK.CC.A.3
Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
CCSSK.CC.B.4
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
CCSSK.CC.B.4b
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
CCSSK.CC.B.5
Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
CCSSK.G.A.1
Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.

 

Next Generation Science Standards

NGSSK-2-ETS1-2
Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
NGSSK-PS2-1
Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. Examples of pushes or pulls could include a string attached to an object being pulled, a person pushing an object, a person stopping a rolling ball, and two objects colliding and pushing on each other. Assessment is limited to different relative strengths or different directions, but not both at the same time. Assessment does not include non-contact pushes or pulls such as those produced by magnets.
NGSSK-PS2-2
Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull. Examples of problems requiring a solution could include having a marble or other object move a certain distance, follow a particular path, and knock down other objects. Examples of solutions could include tools such as a ramp to increase the speed of the object and a structure that would cause an object such as a marble or ball to turn. Assessment does not include friction as a mechanism for change in speed.
