Week 3

 

I can

 

Demonstrate curiosity and personal insight through observing and discussing works of art.

 

Create art that expresses personal ideas, interests, and feelings.

Echo short melodic patterns sung by the teacher.

 

Maintain a steady beat while playing an instrument in a group. 

Demonstrate basic (fundamental) movement vocabulary and cue words for learning skills.

 

Perform basic manipulative skills.

Week 9

 

I can

 

Use objects, drawings, mental images, sounds, etc., to represent addition and subtraction within 10.

Count up to 20 objects arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle. Count up to 10 objects in a scattered configuration. Count out the number of objects, given a number from 1 to 20.

Use objects, drawings, etc., to decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, and record each decomposition with a drawing or an equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1). [In Kindergarten, students should see equations and be encouraged to trace them, however, writing equations is not required.] 

Find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number for any number from 1 to 9 (e.g., by using objects or drawings), and record the answer with a drawing or an equation.

Recognize sets of 1 to 10 objects in patterned arrangements and tell how many without counting.

Describe the positions of objects and geometric shapes in space using the terms inside, outside, between, above, below, near, far, under, over, up, down, behind, in front of, next to, to the left of and to the right of.

Compare two- and three-dimensional shapes in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/"corners") and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).

Model shapes in the world by composing shapes from objects (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

Compose simple geometric shapes to form larger shapes (e.g., create a rectangle composed of two triangles).

Make direct comparisons of the length, capacity, weight, and temperature of objects, and recognize which object is shorter, longer, taller, lighter, heavier, warmer, cooler, or holds more.

Week 6

 

I can

 

Discriminate between types of lines (characteristics), shapes (geometric), textures (tactile), and colors (primary/secondary hues) in own work and the work of others.

 

Reflect on and share work with others.

Respond to teacher-played phrases with a similar phrase using body percussion, found items, or an instrument.

Use fine and gross motor movement to demonstrate simple rhythm and pitch patterns.

Identify and demonstrate basic principles for learning basic movement skills.

Week 9

 

I can

Identify simple images and subject matter in works of art.

Construct possible meanings in works of art based on personal response and properties in the works.

Identify other classes and school activities where music is used and the purpose of the music in each situation.

Identify situations in daily life where music is experienced.

Demonstrate respect for other children in physical education class.

 

Show a positive attitude toward self and others during physical activity.

Week 6

Investigate the local weather conditions to describe patterns over time. Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.
