Looking for a fun and easy way to teach counting and cardinality with your kindergarten students? Need a new approach or set of activities? Check out this product designed specifically for the busy kindergarten classroom! This mini-unit is directly aligned with common core math standards for kindergarten and highlights three standards in Counting and Cardinality. Specific standards in this mini-unit are:
K.CC.A.2 -- Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
K.CC.A.3 -- 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).
K.CC.B.5 -- 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.
