    • Students will learn how to name their topic and write facts about their topic.

     

    Go Math!: 

    Chapter 3: Students will represent, count and write numbers 6 to 9.

    • Model and count objects
    • Represent a number with number names and written numeral
    • Use a drawing to make 10 from a given number
    • Count forward from a given number
    • Solve problems by using the strategy make a model and act it out

     Chapter 4: Students will represent and compare numbers to 10.

    • Model and count objects
    • Represent a number with number names and written numeral
    • Use a drawing to make 10 from a given number
    • Count forward from a given number
    • Solve problems by using the strategy make a model and act it out
    • Use counting strategies to compare sets of objects
    • Compare two numbers

    Chapter 5: Students will explore subtraction.

    • Use expressions to represent subtraction
    • Solve problems by using the strategy act it out and draw a picture
    • Use objects and drawings to solve subtraction word problems
    • Solve subtraction word problems and record the equation

    Common Core Learning Standards:

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

    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.CC.B.5 - Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.

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

    K.OA.A.3 - Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

    K.OA.A.4 - 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).
