NC SCOC Objective & I can statements:



Teaching Strategies:

Materials needed:

Goal 1: The learner will recognize, model, and write whole numbers through 30


1.01 Develop number sense for whole numbers through 30

   a-c Read,   

   write, and count

   objects 0 to 30

  1. Connect model, number word (orally), and number, using a variety of representations

Practice writing numerals in pudding, sand, salt, shaving cream. 





pudding, sand, salt and/or shaving cream.

    a-c Read, 

    write, and count

    objects 0 to 30


  1. Count objects in a set









    a-c Read, write,

    and count

    objects 0 to 30


  1. Read and write numerals



* Write a set of numbers on pink and blue index cards.  Play I have ____.  Who has ____.  Children must read the numbers and match the numbers. 

For writing number: 1) use whiteboards and markers

2) write on a partner's back

3) use pretzels, straws, strings, etc. 


index cards 










whiteboards and dry-erase markers; various manipulatives to form the numbers

  1. Compare objects using words (more, less, equal, shortest, longest, and tallest)









e.  Tell what place an object is in (1st – 10th)


  1. Use ordinals (1st-10th)



* Using pony beads of different colors, students can put them in order on a pipe cleaner to tell the story of the First Thanksgiving.


* Use seasonal objects to practice ordinal words - ex. candy canes, turkeys, footballs 


* Sequencing events in a story - ex. decorating a christmas tree; 1st put on the lights; 2nd put on the ornaments;

  1. Estimate amounts less than or equal to 10


f. Estimate quantities fewer than or equal to 10









      g.  Match numbers to sets


      g.  Recognize equivalence in  sets and numbers 1-10









1.02 Share equally between two people


1.02 Share equally (divide) between two people; explain









1.03 Solve story problems and explain


1.03 Solve problems and share solutions to problems in small groups










Competency Goal 2: The learner will explore concepts of measurement


2.01 Tell how two things are the same and different (using color, weight, height, width, length, and how they feel)


2.01 Compare attributes of two objects using appropriate vocabulary (color, weight, height, width, length, texture)


* compare students

* compare pumpkins

* use math journals - split pages; on one side, draw 2 shapes that are the same; on other side, draw 2 shapes that are Kindergarten Reading Instructional Guide different 

The concept of "same and different" can be

taught by talking about how the cover illustrations of 2 books of the same topic (ex: snow) are the same and different. 

2.02 Name the days of the week, months of the year, seasons, and tell what comes before and after


2.02 Recognize concepts of calendar time using appropriate vocabulary (days of the week, months of the year, seasons)









Competency Goal 3: The learner will explore concepts of geometry


3.01 Name and make basic shapes (circle, rectangle, triangle, sphere and cube)


3.01 Identify, build, draw, and name triangles, rectangles, and circles; identify, build, and name spheres and cubes








3.02 Tell how shapes are the same and different


3.02 Compare geometric shapes (identify likenesses and differences)










3.03 Show and use (over, above, beside, in, on, under, behind, in front, and around)


3.03 Model and use directional and positional vocabulary







* have children model the positional words while using their chairs  


3.04 Complete puzzles


3.04 Complete simple spatial visualization tasks and puzzles





* use pattern block animal puzzles - there is 1 for each letter of the alphabet 



Competency Goal 4: The learner will collect, organize and display data


4.01 Make and understand graphs


4.01 Collect and organize data as a group activity





4.02 Use graphs to answer questions


4.02 Display and describe data with concrete and pictorial graphs as a group activity





Competency Goal 5: The learner will model simple patterns and sort objects


5.01 Sort (group) objects by and explain how they are sorted (one likeness / difference at a time, but three different ways)


5.01 Sort and classify objects by only one attribute










* Children cut out pictures of living/nonliving things.  Glue nonliving pictures onto construction paper Christmas stockings.  Glue living pictures onto construction paper Christmas trees.








magazines, scissors, construction paper, Christmas tree and stocking tracers 

5.02 Name and make patterns


5.02 Create and extend patterns with actions, words, and objects





* Use seasonal erasers to create/copy/extend patterns.


*  Write letter patterns on index cards (ex. ABABAB).  Each child draws a card from the stack and then must make the pattern that is on their card.


* Use seasonal clip-art pictures to create patterns.




seasonal erasers 





index cards with patterns written on them



clip-art pictures
