UnboundEd## Kindergarten Standards Guide: Counting & Cardinality

Description: Explanations and examples of how to implement the Counting & Cardinality standards 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. ("Because I counted to 3, there are 3 objects here.") This connection is of critical importance of all later work in math. The standards in the CC domain are foundational skills and understandings that will prepare students for Operations & Algebraic Thinking and Numbers & Operations in Base Ten.
