Module 1: Numbers to 10

- classify to make categories and count
- focus on the Concept of Zero
- Work with numbers 0-10 (different configurations, math drawings, expressions, one more, one less)
Common Core Learning Standards:
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.4 - Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
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.OA.A.3 - 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).
K.MD.B.3 - Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
