We will identify 2D shapes by using math manipulatives and puzzles to learn to identify shapes. We will also review colors at the same time, just to have some fun! We can play a game together to reinforce the concepts of shapes. Students will learn to identify the number of sides, shapes, and other identifying characteristics of shapes for easy understanding of this concept. Some of the shapes included in this lesson will be: circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds, ovals, and more!

#### 3 3D Shapes 12:09

3D or 3-dimensional shapes are all around us. They make up our world! By learning more about them, we understand more and we can learn more! Let's explore examples of pyramids, cubes, cylinders, spheres, rectangular prisms, and other extension concepts!

#### 5 Shapes in Art 11:20

This lesson creates a bridge between math, science, and art.

We need to draw our observations for science and record keeping!

We need to refine our artistic drawing skills to create realistic drawings.

We can use our knowledge of shapes from math to make our drawings look more realistic!

In this lesson, the concept of 2D shapes is used as a foundation to build more advanced skills.

An important component of this lesson includes diversity: appreciating that when we draw a portrait of ourselves we can celebrate our unique and individual appearances.

#### 7 Calendar Concepts 14:12

Using both a traditional calendar and bold, graphic-organizer style calendar, we'll discuss many important concepts within this lesson, through fun songs, rhymes, and visual aids. We'll cover topics such as:

-seasons

-years

-days in a year

-leap year

-months

-days in a month

-days in a week

-telling what day it is

-counting down to an important day

-stating the date

#### 9 Temperature and Weather 13:31

We observe the weather most every day. When we observe the weather outside in our real lives, we are being scientists in real life! How cool is that? Learn to identify and apply weather observations to the concepts of temperature. Topics covered in this lesson include:

-Fahrenheit

-Celcius

-freezing and boiling points

-average human body temperature

-hot and cold

-warm and cool

#### 11 Seasons 11:18

Winter, spring, summer, and fall. Four seasons in all! In this lesson, our learning journey brings us to explore the weather and temperatures that we see during each of the four different seasons throughout the year. We learn that temperature and weather changes during different times of the year. We explore the need to dress differently according to the weather patterns.  A fun dress-up activity within this lesson helps to bring relevant connections into this exciting topic.

#### 13 All About Numbers 25:15

In this lesson, we will show the number, count the number, and write the number - for every number starting with 0, all the way to number 10! This primer lesson gives students a strong mathematical foundation to build off as we move into higher-level concepts in future lessons.

#### 15 Counting the Math Way 20:08

In this lesson, students learn an important tool for basic addition and subtraction. Counting on fingers "the math way" gives students an opportunity to understand this concept without confusion. To make this idea more hands-on and interesting, we will play with a fun farm playset to show our number problem examples in a visual display.

#### 17 Tally Counting 11:56

In this lesson, fun toys and math manipulatives explain the concept of showing numbers expressed by tallies. Tally up different numbers shown by pretend candles on a cake and more! Practice combining numbers with tallies. This is an important foundational skill for building higher-level math content knowledge.

#### 19 Counting to 100 16:48

Let's explore all of the ways to count to 100 and visualize this process at the same time! Colorful sticks are grouped together in multiple sets to show all of the different ways to reach that big number: 100. Students will:

-count by ones

-count by twos

-count by fives

-count by tens

-recognize the numerical correspondence between fives and ones to ultimately reach 100

#### 21 Place Value 12:15

Roll, show, and solve for place value! Together, we will exemplify the understanding of place value in terms of tens and ones. Examples show:

-2 digit place value terms

-visually showing stacks or "sticks" of ten and indidual cubes as ones

-stretching out the number in an addition problem statement for higher level understanding

#### 23 Partners to 10 10:00

In this lesson, we'll use Legos (block toys) to visually show several different addition and subtraction skills as we navigate solving math problems to 10. We'll discuss the concept of creating partners to 10. When we know the partners to 10, we can then apply this concept to adding and subtracting larger numbers. This lesson includes a reinforcement activity which will refine and develop fluency with basic addition and subtraction. The goal of this lesson is to create a strong mathematical foundation in the areas of understanding addition and subtraction problems.

#### 25 Ten Frames 10:00

Our math butterflies are here to show us how to use Ten Frames.

Ten Frames help us to understand the components of 10, and Partners to 10. Along with the ideas that:

-5 is half of 10

-10 is half of 20

-we can count by fives

-we can count by tens

-we can make "partners to 10" to help us add and subtract bigger numbers by focusing on numbers we are already comfortable with using

#### 27 Basic Addition and Subtraction 16:57

In this lesson, students will get a comprehensive overview in the subjects of adding and subtracting numbers. There is an element of fun in this lesson video as students see toys that add comfort, familiarity, and real-life relevance to this new and exciting concept. We will focus on:

-the "parts" and meaning of a number sentence or math problem: plus sign, minus symbol, equals sign

-moving the "parts" around to look different but still means the same

-showing 1:1 correspondence to understand meaning behind the numbers and symbols

-concepts for solving basic addition and subtraction

#### 29 Probability 12:29

Probability: what will probably happen? Is it more probable? Let's explore these terms in our introduction to probability lesson! We use the fun concept of making a pizza to experiment with probability concepts. When a spinner has six different toppings on it, what will happen? What different toppings could we get on four different slices of pizza? Let's figure it out together!

#### 31 Less Than, Greater Than, Equal To 05:05

In this lesson, we'll use fun math manipulative tools such as dice and a spinner to compare random numbers. Students will begin to identify which number is greater, less, or if the two numbers are equal, when they are compared. Students will meet a friendly monster friend to help understand using the greater than and less than symbols. The monster always wants to "eat" the bigger numbers! This is a helpful trick for better understanding and fluency.

#### 33 Patterns 14:40

This lesson introduces the idea of patterns. Patterns are present all around us, every day. We just have to know about them in order to recognize and understand them. This lesson uses painting to explain patterns in an interactive and fun format. Students will learn to make different patterns using painted shapes in different colors.

#### 35 Introduction to Capacity 14:44

Students explore the idea of capacity at the grocery store by filling up a basket and shopping bags with common grocery items. Topics discussed include:

-defining capacity

-exploring capacity through math experiments

-recognizing differences in size and shape

-counting and 1:1 correspondence

-estimating

-applying math concepts to real-world experiences

#### 37 Block Capacity Measurement 13:47

This second lesson about capacity refines and extends skills which students have started to understand from our initial learning journey to discover more about capacity. Blocks give us a more accurate idea of capacity because this method of nonstandard measurement allows the units (blocks) to all have about the same size and shape. When we fill two spaces: a bag, and a basket - to the brim with blocks, what will we discover? This fun and engaging lesson helps students to apply their knowledge and build a strong foundation within these concepts.

#### 39 Volume 11:00

Our learning journey brings us to explore the idea of volume. In this lesson, we define the concept of volume through several examples. We compare the total volume of water in two different baby bottles of differing sizes and shapes. We will use a balance scale to connect concepts of weight and volume together and establish which bottle has more water and which has less based on our results. Next we compare two glasses of slightly different shapes and sizes to see which will hold more and which will hold less. There are many concepts being connected within this lesson to help students discover new pathways to create their own ideas to understand volume!

#### 41 Following a Recipe 18:03

We can learn about measurement, fractions, and science all by doing one very fun activity - baking! Let's bake a batch of cookies together. We can learn to:

-measure cups, ounces, teaspoons, and other standard baking measurements

-work in sequential order

-combine ingredients

#### 43 Comparing Sizes 12:38

In this lesson, our learning journey brings us to explore the concept of size comparisons. When students compare the sizes of items, they learn vocabulary such as:

-bigger

-larger

-smaller

-smallest

-biggest

-same

-similar

Students learn how to estimate sizes by observing visually. They explore the concept of nonstandard measurement through comparison.

#### 45 Size Order 10:30

In this lesson, students will learn to put items in order according to their size. We'll use a variety of common toys and objects which will be relevant to students and offer opportunities for these emerging skills to develop further within natural, play-based learning activities in everyday life. This organic learning journey will focus on noticing size differences and identifying which item is big, bigger, biggest or small, smaller, smallest to create ascending or descending size order.

#### 47 Non-Standard Measurement 13:31

Non-standard Measurement is a foundational skill on which many other STEAM concepts are built. In this lesson, we will use relevant objects and concepts which establish a clear connection to real-life concepts. We will use cubes and bricks to measure items which most students will see as familiar household objects. This lesson also reinforces the concepts of counting, 1:1 correspondence, and size comparisons.

#### 49 Standard Measurement 16:27

Measurement is an important skill for a strong STEAM foundation. It will continue to be important in all areas of life, especially math, sicence, engineering, and art. Through this lesson, students will explore this concept of labeling measured lengths and widths in inches and understanding that there are other units known as centimeters and milileters as well! Students will view a hands-on experiment measuring using a ruler and tape measure and learn the implications for using different measuring tools. We will learn to measure the world around us to learn a little bit more as we continue this learning journey.

#### 51 Weight 13:06

In this lesson, students will look on as we exemplify how to use a balance scale to observe and discover weight concepts. Together, we will weigh a variety of different items and discuss which side is:

-heavier (weighs more)

-lighter (weighs less)

#### 53 The Water Cycle 11:22

In this lesson, students will learn all about the water cycle. We will sing a very fun (and catchy) song all about the water cycle. We'll discuss many ideas with the help of singing and visual aids, such as:

-ground water

-water on plants

-water in frozen form

-clouds

-condensation

-rain

-precipitation

-fog

-evaporation

-and so much more!

#### 55 Living and Non-Living 08:15

In this fun and engaging lesson, students will learn to identify and classify items into two groups: living and non-living. Students will learn the components and deciding factors for each group to help sort these items. Real objects which will be relevant to young students will help to make this lesson exciting and interactive as we work together to sort the objects and decide if it's alive or not alive! This scientific concept will be essential to build new skills in biology as students continue on their lifelong learning journey.

#### 57 Plants 13:10

This learning journey explains the plant life cycle. In this lesson, we learn that plants are alive. We know that plants are living things because they grow and change, and we learn that we grow and change too. Students will discover the stages of the plant life cycle and the important parts of a plant which allow for this life cycle to occur - over and over again! Real flowers will add a hands-on and fun layer to this exciting lesson.

#### 59 Parts of a Flower 10:00

In this lesson, students will learn to extend their knowledge of living things and plants. We'll build upon pre-existing knowledge of plants to add new ideas and concepts. Students will discover:

Students will define foods by their defining characteristics and types to group them together into categories. They will label food groups with terms such as protein, dairy, vegetables, meats, fruits, and grains. Students will also apply healthy habits concepts within this lesson and expand on their pre-existing ideas of feeding their bodies healthy foods for survival and growth.

#### 71 My Five Senses 12:14

Can you hear a pickle? Yes! You can hear, touch, taste, smell, and see a pickle. We will explore the idea of "my five senses" through a hands-on interactive lesson which centralizes around the idea of the way our senses can help us to learn more about a pickle - and understand that a pickle, is a pickle! What other things can we understand thanks to our five senses? This in-depth lesson covers everything related to our five senses! As a bonus, students will connect a new extension idea: that adjectives are the "describing words" we use to explain what we see, touch, taste, smell, and hear!

#### 73 Solar System 13:42

This Solar System lesson will cover introductory topics related to the study of our planets and outer space!
