Physical Development & HealthGross Motor Skills: The control of large muscles for movement, navigation, and balance.Understands movement concepts, such as control of the body, how the body moves (such as an awareness of space and directionality), and that the body can move independently or in coordination with other objects.Language DevelopmentReceptive Language: The ability to comprehend or understand language.Comprehends increasingly complex and varied vocabulary.Mathematics Knowledge & SkillsGeometry & Spatial Sense: The understanding of shapes, their properties, and how objects are related to one another.Understands directionality, order, and position of objects, such as up, down, in front, behind.Mathematics Knowledge & SkillsGeometry & Spatial Sense: The understanding of shapes, their properties, and how objects are related to one another.Understands directionality, order, and position of objects, such as up, down, in front, behind.
