Children organize sounds and symbols into groups based on similar traits. This can be as simple as labeling a sound as “high” or “low”.
Children continue to learn to count sets of sounds, symbols, and pictures containing up to 10 items.

Children continue to learn to recognize simple alternating patterns and predict “what comes next”.
