Numeral puzzles and number matching games can help children recognize and order numbers. MATH STANDARDS THAT CAN BE EMBEDDED IN LARGE-GROUP TIMES Children can ■ ■ Art Area Children can ■ ■ ■ ■ describe simple geometric shapes; ■ ■ understand the concept of measurement; ■ ■ describe or represent sequences of events and time periods. ■ ■ show increasing abilities to match and sort (e.g., with people sorting); show interest and curiosity in counting (e.g., in taking attendance); describe or represent sequences of events and time periods. As children create with a variety of art materials, they may iden- tify geometric shapes, measure and compare sizes of playdough or length of painted lines, and describe the sequence of actions they took to make their creation. MATH STANDARDS THAT CAN BE EMBEDDED IN SMALL-GROUP WORK MATH STANDARDS EMBEDDED IN PROJECTS THAT FOLLOW UPON CHILDREN’S INTERESTS Skills such as matching, sorting, counting, grouping, number identification, measuring, and analyzing data can be developed through working with manipulatives and games, graphing and record keeping, reading counting stories and books, making number books, creating patterns, and doing cooking activities. Many projects include the need for mathematical analysis and documentation. A study of balls may include comparing sizes, sorting by color or material, and graphing or charting the results. Counting, numeric representation, data analysis, and measure- ment can all be incorporated into a number of topics, discussions, and documentation. COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL 65
