2 Aligning the Instructional Program with the Grade Level Standards and Benchmarks In order to align the instructional program with the prescribed content standards for the grade, it is critical that the standards and their affiliated benchmarks are reviewed regularly so that we become very familiar with them. At the outset of each quarter/trimester an initial decision must be made as to which standards and benchmark proficiencies will be included in the instructional program. At the end of each quarter/trimester the teacher should fill out the response section next to each benchmark. This activity will serve as a checkpoint and will help gauge what still needs to be taught or what should be re-taught. Complete the Response Section ST/B = Standard and Benchmark P: Priority benchmark : uarter or or or At the start of the quarter/trimester, select the benchmarks you consider to be your priority benchmarks. Mark the box under the P code. At the end of each quarter/trimester complete the response section of the standard/benchmark listings, indicating to what extent students have mastered the benchmark. A: More than 75% of the B: About half of the C: fewer then 5% of the Sample Recording of the Response Form GRADE The motion of objects can be observed and measured. As a basis for understanding this concept, students in the SECOND GRADE will Degree of Mastery: % of students at end of each : uarter ST.A P know that the position of an object can be described by locating it in relation to another object or to the background. ST.B know that an object's motion can be described by recording the change in position of the object over time. A B B C A A B B Science Standards and Benchmark Proficiencies Kindergarten p.

3 Science Standards and Benchmark Proficiencies Properties of materials can be observed, measured, and predicted. As a basis for understanding this concept, students in KINDERGARTEN will Degree of Mastery: % of students at end of each : uarter ST.A know that objects can be described in terms of the materials they are made of (e.g., clay, cloth, paper) and their physical properties (e.g., color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility, attraction to magnets, floating, sinking). ST.B know that water can be a liquid or a solid and can be made to change back and forth from one form to the other. ST.C know that water left in an open container evaporates (goes into the air) but water in a closed container does not. II. LIFE SCIENCES Different types of plants and animals inhabit the earth. As a basis for understanding this concept, students in KINDERGARTEN will ST/B. P ST/B: Standard/Benchmark P: Priority Benchmark Degree of Mastery: % of students at end of each : uarter ST.A know how to observe and describe similarities and differences in the appearance and behavior of plants and animals (e.g., seedbearing plants, birds, fish, insects). ST.B know that stories sometimes give plants and animals attributes they do not really have. ST.C know how to identify major structures of common plants and animals (e.g., stems, leaves, roots, arms, wings, legs). Science Standards and Benchmark Proficiencies Kindergarten p.

4 III. EARTH SCIENCES Earth is composed of land, air, and water. As a basis for understanding this concept, students in KINDERGARTEN will Degree of Mastery: % of students at end of each : uarter ST.A know the characteristics of mountains, rivers, oceans, valleys, deserts, and local landforms. ST.B know that changes in weather occur from day to day and across seasons, affecting Earth and its inhabitants. ST.C know how to identify resources from Earth that are used in everyday life and understand that many resources can be conserved. IV. INVESTIGATION AND EXPERIMENTATION Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations. As a basis for understanding this concept and addressing the content in the other three strands, students should develop their own questions and perform investigations. Students in KINDERGARTEN will ST/B. P ST/B: Standard/Benchmark P: Priority Benchmark Degree of Mastery: % of students at end of each : uarter ST.A observe the common objects by using the five senses. ST.B ST.C describe the properties of common objects. describe the relative position of objects by using one reference (e.g., above or below).
