• What is a pattern?
• How can I read patterns?
• How can I find out how many?
• How can I show how many?
• What are glyphs and graphs and how can I 'read' them?
• What does it mean to estimate?
*Work toward accuracy
*Working with others
*Numeral recognition 1-10
*Each numeral represents a quantity
*Graphs are used to record, compare, and show information
*Identify geometric shapes
*A pattern repeats itself
*A pattern is a series
*There are different pattern sequences
*Patterns can be described in different ways (letters, colors, shapes, numerals...)
*Counting is used to tell how many
*Develop a counting strategy (One-to-one correspondence)
*Zero is an important number
*Sort and classify by several attributes
*Identify, extend, and create patterns
*Label a pattern
*Create geometric shapes
*Count objects 1-10 and record thinking
*Count by 10's as a group
*Interpret glyphs and graphs
*Use a calender to develop awareness of days of the week, a concept of time passing, and the months of the year
*Count the days of the week
