Teach all the kindergarten counting and cardinatlity standards visually with explicit instruction and differentiation. Includes teacher progress reporting charts by standard, student self-tracking logs, teaching activities, and applications to life.
Suggestions for Use:
• Build a Counting and Cardinality folder for each student. Include one sheet each of the teacher tracking and student self-tracking charts for standards A, B, C found in Part One.
• When you meet with students to assess their learning, let them record their progress at the same time.
• Use the learning activities in Part Two to teach and assess the student’s skill level.
• Involve parents by sending home sheets designed for home practice. Reward students who return sheets signed by someone at home, showing they worked on the skill with someone.
Kindergarten Common Core Standards for Counting and Cardinality
Know number names and the count sequence.
Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
Count to tell the number of objects.
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.1
Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.
