Printable Parent Letter

 

Students need to:

  • Use one-to-one correspondence and rote counting to determine how many objects are in a set of up to 10 objects.
  • Verbally count to 10 by ones and then develop rote counting to 20 by ones.
  • Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities to 10.
  • Recognize that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted.
  • Identify, describe, and create sets of up to 10 objects using concrete materials (ten frames), pictures and/or numerals (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
  • See numbers 6 – 10 with a 5 group (dot arrays, fingers, ten frame).
  • Match a numeral to a set 0-10.
  • Recognize written numerals 0 – 10.
  • Count and discuss quantity 0-10 in various arrangements (line, array, scattered).
  • Recognize the concept of just after or just before a given number in the counting sequence up to 10.
  • Use one-to-one correspondence to identify, describe, and compare sets of concrete objects using language such as “more than,” “less than,” or “same as”.
  • Recognize that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
  • Say the number-word list to thirty-nine.
