Description: Explanations and examples of how to implement the Counting & Cardinality standards in Kindergarten. Classify objects and count the number of objects in categories. For example, in the activity below, students cut and glue pictures onto a library, school, or grocery store, then write how many objects are associated with each location. Also, students can compare the number of objects in the classified groups. In particular, students will rely on counting as they begin work decomposing numbers within 10. In the example, students count the total, then decompose the total and relate the decomposition to an addition expression.
