Counting Objects
Kindergarten


Alabama Course of Study Standards:
4

Connect counting to cardinality using a variety of concrete objects. Say the number names in consecutive order when counting objects.
 Indicate that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted in a set
 Indicate that the number of objects in a set is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in
which they were counted.
 Explain that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger

Count to answer “how many?” questions. Count using no more than 20 concrete objects arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle.
 Count using no more than 10 concrete objects in a scattered configuration.
 Draw the number of objects that matches a given numeral from 0 to 20.

Arkansas Academic Standards:
K.CC.B.5

Count to answer “how many?”: Count up to 20 objects in any arrangement
 Count up to 10 objects in a scattered configuration
 Given a number from 120, count out that many objects
Note: As students progress they may first move the objects, counting as they move them. Students may also line up objects to count them. If students have a scattered arrangement, they may touch each item as they count it, or if students have a scattered arrangement, they may finally be able to count them by visually scanning without touching the items.
