Our Learning Targets for December

In English/ Language Arts

• With prompting and support, I can tell the role of an author and illustrator in telling a story.
• I can make connections between the illustrations and the story (how illustrations support the text).
• I can understand and use question words.
• I can identify characters, setting, and major events in a story.
• I can read common high-frequency words by sight.
• I can recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
• I can produce the sounds for each consonant.
• I can associate the short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
• I can recognize and produce rhyming words.
• I can count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words.
• I can blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words.

In Math

• I can count to 100 by ones and tens.

• I can identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres).

• Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.

• Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

• Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or threedimensional (“solid”).

• Analyze and 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 building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

• Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”
