Patterns and Relations

K.PR.1
Demonstrate an understanding of repeating pattern (two or three elements) by: identifying, reproducing, extending, creating patterns using manipulatives, sounds, and actions.
• Distinguish between repeating patterns and nonrepeating sequences by identifying the part that repeats.
• Copy a repeating pattern (e.g., actions, sound, colour, size, shape, or orientation) and describe the pattern.
• Extend repeating patterns by two more repetitions.
• Create a repeating pattern, using manipulatives, musical instruments, or actions and describe the pattern.
• Identify and describe a repeating pattern in the classroom, the school, and outdoors (e.g., in a familiar song, in a nursery rhyme, in a game, on the street, on the playground). 

K.PR.1

Number

K.N.1
Say the whole number sequence by 1s starting anywhere from 0 to 10 and from 10 to 0.
• State the whole number that comes after a given number, zero to nine.
• State the whole number that comes before a given number, one to ten.
• Recite the whole number names from a given number to a stated number (forward  zero to ten, backward  ten to zero) using visual aids. 

K.N.2
Recognize, at a glance, and name familiar arrangements of 1 to 5 objects, dots, or pictures.
• Look briefly at a given familiar arrangement of 1 to 5 objects or dots, and identify the whole number that represents the number of objects or dots without counting.
• Identify the whole number that represents an arrangement of objects, dots, or pictures on a five frame. 

K.N.3
Relate a numeral, 0 to 10, to its respective quantity.
• Construct or draw a set of objects corresponding to a given numeral.
• Identify the number of objects in a set.
• Hold up the appropriate number of fingers for a given numeral.
• Match numerals with pictorial representations.

K.N.4
Represent the partitioning of whole numbers (1 to 10) concretely and pictorially.
• Show a whole number in two parts, using fingers, counters or other objects and name the number of objects in each part.
• Show a whole number in two parts, using pictures, and name the number of objects in each part. 

K.N.5
Compare quantities, 0 to 10, using onetoone correspondence.
• Construct a set to show more than, fewer than, or as many objects as in a given set of objects.
• Compare two sets through direct comparison, and describe the relationship between the sets using words such as: more, fewer, as many as, or the same number. 

K.N.1

Shape and Space

K.SS.1
Use direct comparison to compare two objects based on a single attribute, such as length including height, mass, volume, capacity.
• Compare the length or height of two objects and explain how they compare using the words shorter, longer, taller, or almost the same.
• Compare the mass of two objects and explain how they compare using the words lighter, heavier, or almost the same.
• Compare the volume of two objects or capacity of two containers and explain how they compare using the words less, more, bigger, smaller, or almost the same. 

K.SS.2
Sort 3D objects using a single attribute.
• Sort a set of familiar 3D objects using a single attribute, such as size or shape, and explain the sorting rule.
• Determine the difference between two presorted sets by identifying the sorting rule used to sort each of them. 

K.SS.3
Build and describe 3D objects.
• Create a representation of a 3D object using materials such as modelling clay and building blocks, and compare the representation to the original 3D object.
• Describe a 3D object using words such as big, little, round, like a box, and like a can.
