- Playing simple patterns (high sound/low sound, loud sound/soft sound etc.)
- Off-the-staff symbol reading
- Playing patterns on groups of two black notes
- Playing patterns on groups of three black notes
- One-to-one correspondence
Children continue to learn that one symbol indicates that one sound should be played; two symbols means two sounds should be played. Understanding one-to-one correspondence is essential for preschool children learning to count.
Children compare numbers, symbols and sounds, and order and classify them based on particular comparisons.
Children learn to count sets of sounds, symbols, and pictures containing up to 10 items.
- Patterning Recognition
Children learn to recognize simple alternating patterns and predict “what comes next”.
