C. Sort and compare twodimensional figures and threedimensional objects according to their characteristics and properties.

Indicator:

1. Identify and sort two dimensional shapes and three dimensional objects. For example: 1  Identify and describe twodimensional figures and threedimensional objects from the environment using the child's own vocabulary 2  Sort shapes and objects into groups based on studentdefined categories. 3  Select all shapes or objects of one type from a group. 4  Build twodimensional figures using paper shapes or tangrams; build simple threedimensional objects using blocks.

F. Describe location, using comparative (before, after), directional (above, below), and positional (first, last) words.

Indicator:

2. Name and demonstrate the relative position of objects as follows: 1  place objects over, under, inside, outside, on, beside, between, above, below, on top of, upsidedown, behind, in back of, in front of; 2  describe placement of objects with terms such as on, inside, outside, above, below, over, under, beside, between, in front of, behind.

Benchmark:

A. Sort, classify and order objects by size, number and other properties, and describe the attributes used.

Indicator:

1. Sort, classify and order objects by size, number and other properties. For example: 1  Identify how objects are alike and different. 2  Order three events or objects according to a given attribute, such as time or size. 3  Recognize and explain how objects can be classified in more than one way. 4  Identify what attribute was used to sort groups of objects that have already been sorted.
