Description: Explanations and examples of how to implement the Counting & Cardinality standards in Kindergarten. These guides are designed to explain what new, high standards for mathematics say about what students should learn in each grade, and what they mean for curriculum and instruction. The second part shows how Counting & Cardinality relate to classification of objects in Kindergarten. The Counting & Cardinality (CC) domain in Kindergarten focuses on developing meaning for numbers by relating counting to the concept of cardinality-the number of objects in a group. These standards delineate the developmental progression to pairing numbers in the count sequence with objects in a group. This connection is of critical importance of all later work in math.
