As a Kindergarten and First Grade looping teacher, I have become passionate about digging into the Common Core Standards to gain a deeper understanding of their meaning and the progressions through K-1. By taking a close look at the mathematical clusters of standards within the Common Core, I have been able to unpack the important pieces that are essential for our Kindergarten students to grow as mathematicians. The Counting and Cardinality domain is the premise of all future mathematics for our students. This document that I have created unpacks three major clusters in the common core (K.CC.A, B, & C). By providing our students with thoughtful and meaningful tasks aligned to these essential clusters, we are setting our students up for success and laying the foundation for their future as mathematicians.
The standards included in this pack are as follows:
*K.CC.B.4 (A, B, C)
Within this pack you will find the following resources and tasks aligned the the Counting and Cardinality Common Core Standards:
*Pg.4 Kindergarten Mathmatical Focus (major, supporting, and additional standards outlined for K)
*Pg.5 Why Unpack Standards?
*Pg.6 Clusters & Standards Guide (K.CC)
*Pg.7 Domain Overview (K.CC)
*Pg.8-12 Key Vocabulary Cards
*Pg.13-18 Resources (five frame, ten frame, double ten frame, hundreds chart, blank hundreds chart)
*Pg.19-34 Task #1 Rote Counting 1-10 (numeral posters, BINGO boards)
*Pg.35-46 Task #2 Rote Counting 1-100 (teen numeral posters, vertical number line)
*Pg.47-49 Task #3 Counting by 10's (multiples of ten hundreds chart, vertical number track)
*Pg.50-65 Task #4 Counting Forward (counting cards, numeral cards 1-20)
*Pg.66-82 Task #5 Numeral Writing (numeral cards, student numeral cards, number tracing boards, number writing practice pages)
*Pg.83-94 Task #6 Representing With a Numeral (five/ten/double ten frames with numeral writing, five/ten/double ten frame practice pages)
*Pg.95-97 Task #7 One-to-One Correspondence (five/ten frames with numerals)
*Pg.98-119 Task #8 How Many Are There? (mini ten frame subitizing cards, large ten/double ten frame subitizing cards, how many are there practice pages, numeral and object matching game)
*Pg.120-125 Task #9 Subitizing (dot cards)
*Pg.126-128 Task #10 Comparing Numbers (comparing numbers practice pages)
*Pg.129-138 Task #11 How Much More or Less? (how many more/how many less posters, how many more/less practice pages, more/less/same game board and cards)
*Pg.138-155 Task #12 Comparison Vocabulary (greater than/less than/same as posters, numeral comparison practice pages, greater than/less than/same as pile up game)
