• 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

• Compare two numbers

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).
