K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.

K.CC.B.4a When counting objects in standard order, say the number names as they relate to each object in the group, demonstrating one-to-one correspondence.

K.G.A.1 Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.

K.NBT.A.1 Gain understanding of place value.

  • K.NBT.A.1a Understand that the numbers 11–19 are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.

  • K.NBT.A.1b Compose and decompose numbers 11 to 19 using place value (e.g., by using objects or drawings).

  • K.NBT.A.1c Record each composition or decomposition using a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 is one ten and eight ones, 18 = 1 ten + 8 ones, 18 = 10 + 8).

K.OA.A Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.

K.NBT.A Work with numbers 11–19 to gain foundations for place value.

K.G.A Identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres).

K.CC.A Know number names and the count sequence.

K.MD.A Describe and compare measurable attributes.

K.CC Counting and Cardinality

K.MD.A.1 Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.

K.OA.A.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

K.CC.C.6 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.

K.G.B.4 Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/"corners") and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).

K.CC.A.1 Count to 100 by ones and by tens.

K.MD.B.3 Classify objects into given categories based on their attributes; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.³

K.MD.B Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category.

K.OA.A.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

K.G.B.5 Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

K.CC.B.4b 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.

K.CC.C.7 Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.

K.CC.B.5 Count to answer "How many?" questions.

  • K.CC.B.5a Count objects up to 20, arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle.

  • K.CC.B.5b Count objects up to 10 in a scattered configuration.

  • K.CC.B.5c When given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.

K.MD.A.2 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and describe the difference.

K.OA Operations and Algebraic Thinking

K.CC.A.2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).

K.G.B Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes.

K.CC.B Count to tell the number of objects.

K.G.A.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

K.CC.B.4c Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.

K.G.B.6 Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes.

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.NBT Number and Operations in Base Ten

K.OA.A.3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).

K.G.A.3 Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").

K.CC.C Compare numbers.

K.MD.C Work with money.

  • K.MD.C.4 Recognize pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters by name and value (e.g., This is a nickel and it is worth 5 cents.)

K.OA.A.4 For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.

K.MD Measurement and Data

K.OA.A.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.

K.G Geometry
