1 PRESCHOOL Mathematics Expectation 1 Children demonstrate an understanding of number and numerical operations. K-12 Standard 4.1 Strand A: Number Sense Strand B: Numerical Operations By the end of Preschool at developmentally appropriate levels of increasing Preschool K Demonstrate understanding of one-to-one correspondence 2. Spontaneously count for own purposes and learn the counting numbers. 3. Discriminate numbers from other symbols in the environment, and recognizes and names some numerals. Match two sets of items - that go together and have the same number - that are put together as a pair by the child for his/her own reasons Say one word for each item in a set. Demonstrate a beginning sense of equivalency in problem solving situations: the same. Compares groups recognizing more, less Recites counting words in fixed order up to 10; attempts to rote count in order to 30+ Correctly assigns a number to each item while counting five or fewer items. Counts each item in a set up to ten and indicates that the last number is the sum, answering the question, How many? Identifies numerals in the environment and distinguishes them from letters.
