Sorting, patterning, 1:1 correspondence, sequencing, same and different, big and little, are just a few of the concepts.
This curriculum is designed to be done in a group setting with math manipulatives making it a very hands on interactive program

McGraw-Hill Little Treasures is a comprehensive curriculum that explores literacy in all environmental aspects.
They will learn to explore letters and words in print and their environment. They will be learning that letters have a specific sound and are more than just symbols, they combine to form words which have their own meaning
They will explore sounds all around them and begin to discriminate between similar sounds laying the foundation for reading and sounding out words.
They will begin learning proper capital and lower case formation of all letters.
