Mathematics Kindergarten

Strand: COUNTING AND CARDINALITY (K.CC)

Know number names and the counting sequence (Standards K.CC.1–3). Count to tell the number of objects (Standards K.CC. 4–5). Identify and compare quantities of objects and numerals (Standards K.CC.6–7).

Standard K.CC.1.

Count to 100 by ones and by tens.

• Assessing Counting Sequences Part I
This activity is designed to determine the appropriate instructional level for a student in a one-on-one interaction with the teacher.
• Choral Counting
The teacher will need a 100 chart or large number line and a pointer. As a whole group, have students chant the counting sequence starting with one to thirty, using the pointer to follow the number sequence. Over time, increase the range to one to fifty and then one to one hundred.
• Connect the Dots: Count by 1s or 2s
Children practice counting numbers while connecting the dots to reveal a fun picture. Connect the dots by counting 1-50 or 1-100 by multiples of 2.
• Counting Circles
This task is a game where students practice counting sequences of no more than 10 numbers.
• Counting by Tens
The objective of this lesson is to gain automaticity counting to 100 and to establish the importance of multiples of ten. The final goal of this lesson is for students to be able to count by tens and articulate the term for this.
• Kindergarten Mathematics Module 5: Numbers 10-20; Count to 100 by Ones and Tens
Up to this point in Grade K, students have worked intensively within 10 and have often counted to 30 using the Rekenrek during fluency practice. This work sets the stage for this module where students clarify the meaning of the 10 ones and some ones within a teen number and extend that understanding to count to 100.
• USBE Core Guide for Domain: Counting and Cardinality (KCC1)
This math guide provides academic vocabulary, instructional strategies, teacher resources, and assessment tasks for the Counting and Cardinality domain.
• Unit 1: Counting With Friends
In this unit, students will recognize and order numbers 0-20, count to tell the number of objects (to 20), compare numbers (to 10), and write the numbers 0-20.
