Students can learn a wealth of information through play and hands-on exploration. These topics include:

Number Sense

Number recognition

  • One-to-one correspondence
  • Compare numbers
  • Subitizing
  • Counting
  • Cardinality
  • Number sequence
  • Hierarchical Inclusion
  • Understanding our base-ten system
  • Place value
  • Measuring Lengths
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • Understand Equivalence
  • Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common
  • Algebraic Thinking
  • Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight
  • Classify objects into given categories

Addition / Subtraction

  • Solve Addition and Subtraction word problems using objects
  • Compose and decompose numbers
  • Find missing addends
  • Skip counting

Multiplication / Division

  • Define multiplication; emphasis on multiples
  • Find factors of whole numbers and use commutative property of multiplication
  • Classify whole numbers (greater than one) as prime or composite
  • Draw conclusions about the factors of a whole number
  • Use associative property of multiplication
  • Use distributive property of multiplication

Fractions / Adding Fractions

  • Define denominator of fractions
  • Define numerator of fractions within halves, fourths, and eights
  • Find equivalent fractions within thirds, sixths, ninths, and twelfths
  • Compare two fractions using inequality symbols
  • Compare and order three fractions using compound inequalities
  • Find the value of a fraction of a whole number
  • Find the fraction, or part, a given value is of a whole value
  • Add two fractions with the same denominator to get a sum up to one whole and fully decompose a given fraction
  • Add two fraction addends with the same denominator to get a sum greater than one whole
  • Add multiple fraction addends to find sums greater than one whole and represent sums in improper form and mixed numbers
  • Add two fraction addends with different denominators (only having to scale one of the addends)
  • Add three fraction addends with different denominators (only having to scale two of the addends)
  • Add two fractions addends with different denominators (having to scale all addends to find a common denominator)
