Work does not yet meet acceptable standard 
Connections 
• makes insightful
connections between a
pictorial representation
and the given number
word

• makes meaningful
connections between a
pictorial representation
and the given number
word

• makes simple connections
between a pictorial
representation and the
given number word

• makes minimal or weak
connections between a
pictorial representation
and the given number
word

Visualization 
• uses visual
representations
insightfully to demonstrate
a thorough understanding
of place value for onedigit
and threedigit
numerals
• uses visual
representations
insightfully to demonstrate
a thorough understanding
of number order

• uses visual representations
meaningfully to
demonstrate a reasonable
understanding of place
value for onedigit and
threedigit numerals
• uses visual representations
meaningfully to
demonstrate a reasonable
understanding of
number order

• uses visual representations
simply to demonstrate a
basic understanding of
place value for onedigit
and threedigit numerals
• uses visual representations
simply to demonstrate a
basic understanding of
number order

• uses visual representations
poorly to demonstrate an
incomplete understanding
of place value for onedigit
and threedigit numerals
• uses visual representations
poorly to demonstrate an
incomplete understanding
of number order
