Reading the Standards
Noun Verb Strategy
For example, Extended Content Standard Reading: Informational text.K.5 from NCDPI reads: With guidance and support, identify the front cover of the book. The verb is identify and the noun phrase is the front cover of the book.
Identifying the noun tells us what students are asked to do and identifying the verb tells us how they will demonstrate learning. So, in the above standard, students will demonstrate learning by identifying the front cover of a book with guidance and support from an adult.
But what about a math standard?
Extended Content Standard Kindergarten.Counting & Cardinality.4 from NCDPI says: Demonstrates one to one correspondence by pairing one object with one and only one number and each numeral with only one object. The verb phrase is demonstrates by pairing and the noun phrase is one to one correspondence. The rest gives us specifics: students are going to demonstrate 1:1 correspondence specifically by pairing one object with one numeral and each numeral with only one object.
