Standards: Virginia Foundation Blocks for Early Learning
PK.1 The child will count with understanding and use numbers to tell how many, describe order, and compare.
PK.1.a Count forward to 20 or more. Count backward from 5.
Count dots (up to 3) (Pre-K - B.1)

Count objects (up to 20) (Pre-K - E.3)
Count down - up to 5 (Kindergarten - B.5)
Count to 30 (Kindergarten - E.1)
PK.1.b Count a group (set/collection) of five to ten objects by touching each object as it is counted and saying the correct number (one-to-one correspondence).
Count objects (up to 3) (Pre-K - B.3)
Count objects (up to 5) (Pre-K - C.3)
Count objects (up to 10) (Pre-K - D.3)
PK.1.c Count the items in a collection of one to ten items and know the last counting word tells "how many."
Represent numbers (up to 3) (Pre-K - B.5)
Represent numbers (up to 5) (Pre-K - C.5)
Represent numbers (up to 10) (Pre-K - D.5)
PK.1.d Compare two groups (sets/collections) of matched objects (zero through ten in each set) and describe the groups using the terms more, fewer, or same.
More (Pre-K - F.1)
Compare in a chart (fewer or more) (Pre-K - F.3)
Compare in a mixed group (Pre-K - F.4)
PK.1.e Use ordinal numbers (first through fifth) when describing the position of objects or groups of children in a sequence.
Ordinal numbers (First grade - A.20)
PK.2 The child will recognize change in groups (sets/ collections) when objects are both added to and taken away from the groups (sets/collections).
PK.2.a Describe changes in groups (sets/ collections) by using more when groups of objects (sets) are combined (added together).
Compare in a chart (fewer or more) (Pre-K - F.3)
Addition with pictures - sums up to 5 (Kindergarten - I.1)
Addition with pictures - sums up to 10 (Kindergarten - I.6)
PK.2.b Describe changes in groups (sets/ collections) by using fewer when groups of objects (sets) are separated (taken away).
More (Pre-K - F.1)
Compare in a chart (fewer or more) (Pre-K - F.3)
Compare in a mixed group (Pre-K - F.4)
PK.3 The child will identify and compare the attributes of length, capacity, weight, time, and temperature.
PK.3.a Recognize attributes of length by using the terms longer or shorter when comparing two objects.
Long and short (Pre-K - I.1)
Tall and short (Pre-K - I.2)
PK.3.b Know the correct names for the standard tools used for telling time and temperature, and for measuring length, capacity, and weight (clocks, calendars, thermometers, rulers, measuring cups, and scales).
PK.3.c Use the appropriate vocabulary when comparing temperatures, e.g., hot, cold.
PK.3.d Use appropriate vocabulary when describing duration of time, e.g., hour, day, week, month, morning, afternoon, and night.
Seasons (Kindergarten - M.5)
A.M. and P.M. (Kindergarten - M.6)
Days of the week (First grade - S.1)
PK.4 The child will describe simple geometric shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, and square) and indicate their position in relation to an individual and to other objects.
PK.4.a Match and sort shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, and square).
Identify circles, squares, and triangles (Pre-K - A.1)

PK.4.b Describe how shapes are similar and different.
Same (Pre-K - H.1)
Different (Pre-K - H.2)
Same and different (Pre-K - H.3)
PK.4.c Recognize and name shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, and square).
