This document presents the Pennsylvania Early Childhood Learning Continuum Indicators, the developmental steps that a learner performs to demonstrate knowledge as stated in the state's Academic Standards. The indicators are not academic standards themselves, but focus on preschool through Grade 2 skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and mathematics. Based on child development theory and authentic observations of the steps young children move through to reach the academic standards, the measurable indicators provide educators with information concerning what learners should know and be able to do across a continuum of age or grade ranges. Included in the document are suggestions for using the indicators and suggestions for implementation. Indicators related to reading, writing, speaking, and listening include the areas of reading independently; reading critically in all content areas; reading, analyzing, and interpreting literature; types of writing; quality of writing; speaking and listening; characteristics and functions of the English language; and research. Mathematics indicators are in the areas of numbers, number systems, and number relationships; computation and estimation; measurement and estimation; mathematical reasoning and connections; mathematical problem solving and communication; statistics and data analysis; probability and predictions; algebra and functions; geometry; trigonometry; and calculus concepts.
