Counting and Cardinality: I CAN...
Standard
Count to 100 by ones and tens

Core Standard
K.CC 1 Count to 100 by ones and tens.

In Other Words
The child counts to 100 by ones and tens.

If Mastered
Once your child can count to 100 by 1's and 10's have them count to 100 by starting with another number. Begin with 13 and then count by 10's until you get to 93. You can use a hundred chart for support.

If Not Yet Mastered
Begin by counting orally. Then use Hundreds Chart.
Have the child point to each number as you count
together. If child is really struggling, focus on counting 120 to begin
with. Once they can count fluently 120, children generally catch on to
the pattern for counting 21100 with some practice.
Many children get stuck when they get to the 9 moving on to the next group of 10's. For example, going from 29...what comes next? With a prompt of "30", they count fine until they get to 39...then they get stuck again. One strategy that is heplful is have your child hold up 1 finger while they are counting the teen numbers. Then as they get to 19, they will put up one more finger to prompt them "20" (2 fingers) comes next. Then when they get to 29, they will put up a third finger to prompt them "30" (3 fingers) comes next. 
Standard
Represent and write numbers from 020.

Core Standard
K.CC 3 Write numbers from 020. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 020 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).

In Other Words
The child writes the numbers from 020. The child counts a number of objects and then writes the corresponding number.

Standard
Count to tell the numbers of objects.

Core Standard
K.CC 4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.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 120, count out that many objects. 
In Other Words
The child understands the connection between numbers and quantities 120 (i.e. pairs numbers with objects).

Start with counting objects 110; For example, have your child set the
table and have them count the plates, count the steps as you walk up and
down them etc. Count items in your every day activities and
environment. Once they can accurately count up to 10 objects, try
1120.

Standard
Compare numbers between 1 and 10.

Core Standard
K.CC 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 7 Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals. 
In Other Words
The child compares two groups to identify the number of objects as greater than, less than, or equal to.
The child compares two numerals between 1 and 10.

*Greater Than/Less Than Support your child to now use the correct comparison symbol when comparing two sets or the written form of two numbers great than > , less than <, and equal to =. K.CC.7 Once child can compare two numbers between 110, you could work on comparing numbers 1120. You could use the same "High Sticks" game with sticks numbered 1120. Support your child to now use the correct comparison symbol when comparing two sets or the written form of two numbers great than > , less than <, and equal to =.

Comparing Number Values: Click Here *Use a container of 2sided counters. There could be anywhere from 5 20 counters in the container. Have child shake the container and pour counters onto a plate or cookie sheet. Have them make a group of "red" and a group of "yellow". Have them count and tell you which group has more, less, or if the groups are equal. K.CC.7 * "High Sticks" To make the "number sticks", take 10 tongue depressors or popsicle sticks and use a magic marker and write a number on the end of each stick. For example, one stick will have "1" on it, another stick will have "2" on it. Place the ten sticks in a cup. Children can play this game independently by choosing 2 sticks. They could also play with a partner using one cup of sticks, or each child could have their own set of sticks 110.
