K.MD.3. Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.1

1.OA.2. Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

1.OA.5. Relate counting to addition and subtraction (by counting on 2 to add 2).
1.OA.6. Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on.

RF.K.4. Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.
