CCSSELA.RF.K 1d: Recognize and name all upper-and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
CCSSELA.RF.K.1 Demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print.
K.MD.2 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common to see which object has “more of”/”less of” the attribute and describe the difference.
K.MD. 3 Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
1.MD.4 Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
K.CC Know number names and the count sequence.
K.OA Understand addition as putting together and adding to and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
K.OA.2 Solve addition problems and add within 10 by using objects to represent the problem.
K.OA.5 Fluently add within 5
1.OA.6 Add and Subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10.
K.CC.4.a Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
K.CC.5 Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
CCSS.Math.1.NBT.1: Count to 120 starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
CCSS.ELA.Literacy.RF.K.2 Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).
CCSS.ELA.Literacy.RF.K.2c Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllables in spoken words.

CCSS.ELA.Literacy RF.1.2c Isolate and pronounce initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in spoken single-syllable words. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.4 Read emergent reader texts with purpose and understanding.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.4 Read grade-level text with purpose and fluency to support comprehension.
1.4c Use context to confirm or self-correct word recognition
and understanding, rereading as necessary.
