IXL's pre-K skills will
be aligned to the Idaho Early Learning Guidelines soon!
Until then, you can view a complete list of

math practice problems in IXL's
PK.39 Children demonstrate understanding of numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems.
PK.39.DG Use number words and concepts to explore and manipulate quantity, size, and relationships.
PK.39.1 Develops understanding of counting process (recognition and naming numerals one, two and three); counting up to ten from memory in home language (e.g., recites, "one, two, three"), without assistance.
PK.39.2 Counts up to ten objects; matching numbers one-to-one with objects (cubes, toys, and pennies) within daily activities.
PK.39.3 Develops understanding that when counting items they must be counted only once, and that none should be left out.
PK.39.4 Begins recognizing that the last number counted represents the "total objects" (for quantities up to ten). Counting is cumulative.
PK.39.5 Applies numbers and counting concepts within daily routines (count numbers of children at the table).
PK.39.6 Applies counting to new situations (counting objects, counting groups).
PK.39.7 Demonstrates understanding that numbers represent quantity (gets three apples out of the box).
PK.39.8 Uses math concepts (more, less, some, many, all, a few, none, huge, tiny, small, smaller, large, larger) to compare quantities.
PK.39.9 May count backwards from ten.
PK.39.10 Differentiates numerals from letters.
PK.39.11 Recognizes and names some numerals (pointing to written numerals named by adult).
PK.39.12 Writes and identifies some numerals named by adult.
PK.39.13 Uses meanings of numbers to create strategies for solving problems and responding to practical situations, with assistance (e.g., "Jimmy took two crackers and I didn't get any.").
PK.40 Children demonstrate understanding of measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement (including size, volume, height, weight, length, area, and time).
PK.40.DG Use geometric modeling and spatial reasoning according to different dimensions.
PK.40.1 Engages in activities that explore and develop vocabulary for measurable properties such as length and weight, or capacity.
PK.40.2 Compares amongst several objects based on one or more attributes (length, size, weight) using words such as "shorter", "bigger", or "lighter".
PK.40.3 Understands positional terms such as "between", "inside", "over", "under", and "behind".
PK.40.4 Sorts and classifies objects based on one or more attributes.
PK.40.5 Orders objects by size, volume, height, weight, and length; with assistance.
PK.40.6 Measures objects using variable nonstandard units.
PK.40.7 Begins to measure objects using standard unit (one-inch cubes, paper clips).
PK.40.8 Uses measuring tools in play activities (measuring tape, measuring cups).
PK.40.9 Measures sand or water using a variety of containers.
PK.40.10 Uses picture cookbook to follow sequence and measures amounts for cooking projects, with assistance.
PK.40.11 Uses some vocabulary in relationship to measurement tools (scale, cup, ruler). May not have accurate understanding of meaning.
PK.40.12 Estimates size (e.g., "I'm as tall as the yellow bookshelf.").
PK. Properties of Ordering
PK.41 Children demonstrate understanding of patterns, relations, and functions used to organize their world and facilitate problem solving.
PK.41.DG Sort, classify, and order objects by color, number, size, or shape. Form simple patterns involving color, number, size, and shape.
PK.41.1 Compares shape and size of familiar objects.
PK.41.2 Sorts and builds with two- and three-dimensional shapes (sphere, cube, cone).
PK.41.3 Identifies and labels different kinds of two-dimensional shapes (square, circle, rectangle, triangle).
PK.41.4 Draws and creates pictures using various shapes.
PK.41.5 Recognizes non-geometrical shapes in nature (clouds or other things that are not circles, squares, triangles).
PK.41.6 Describes characteristics of familiar geometric and non-geometric shapes in the environment, with assistance.
PK.41.7 Puts together and takes apart shapes to make other shapes (use two triangles to make a rectangle with blocks).
PK.41.8 Makes and describes patterns including serialization based on numbers, shapes, and size.
PK.41.9 Predicts what comes next in a pattern and completes the pattern.
PK.41.10 Creates or extends a complex pattern with more than two repeating elements.
