Mathematics MA2019 (2019) Grade: K 16. Identify and describe measurable attributes (length, weight, height) of a single object using vocabulary such as long/short, heavy/light, or tall/short. Unpacked Content Evidence Of Student Attainment:Students: Given a variety of 2D and 3D objects, use informal language (short, tall, heavy, light, fat, skinny, etc.) to describe measurable attributes of objects such as length or weight.Teacher Vocabulary:Attribute Knowledge:Students know: how to describe similarities and differences in objects. Skills:Students are able to: Describe measurable attributes of objects using informal language. Understanding:Students understand that: objects can be described by using measurable attributes.Diverse Learning Needs: Essential Skills:Learning Objectives: M.K.16.1: Define length and weight. M.K.16.2: Explore objects in relationship to length and weight. Prior Knowledge Skills:Notice same/different and some/all. Begin to name and match colors, sizes, and shapes. Enjoy playing with all kinds of objects. Point to matching or similar objects. Understand that words can label sameness and differences. Understand that some have more, and some have less. Sort a variety of objects in a group that have one thing in common. Recognize and sort familiar objects with the same size. Have an interest in the order of things. Understand the concept of smallest and shortest. Understand the concept of same shape and size. Understand the concept of smallest and shortest. Understand the concept of light and heavy. Understand the concept long and short. Classify common objects according to height (tall/short). Classify common objects according to length (long/short). Classify common objects according to weight (heavy/light). Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards AAS Standard: M.AAS.K.16 Classify objects according to attributes (e.g., big/small, heavy/light, tall/short).
Learning Objectives:
