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.2.

Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).

• Assessing Counting Sequences Part I
In this task the teacher asks the student to begin counting at a certain number and complete a sequence in order to assess their understanding of counting.
• Assessing Counting Sequences Part II
In this assessment the teacher gives the student a number and asks them to say which number comes after it.
• 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.
• Number After Bingo 1-15
This task asks students to play the "Number After" game which resembles bingo and reinforces the student's understanding of the concept of number after.
• Number Line Up
In this activity students are each given a number sign and then must place themselves in number order.
• One More Concentration
This game is a version of the traditional memory or concentration game.
• Pick a Number, Counting On
The teacher puts multiple numbers in a hat or on sticks from the known counting sequence. S/he randomly picks one number and asks the class to count on ten numbers from that number. The class does this chorally.
• Start-Stop Counting
This activity is a game similar to Duck, Duck, Goose, with students counting as they touch heads.
• USBE Core Guide for Domain: Counting and Cardinality (KCC2)
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.
