Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

MA2015 (K)
4. Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. [K-CC4]
a. When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object. [K-CC4a]
b. Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted. [K-CC4b]
c. Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger. [K-CC4c]

National/Other Standards:

Pre-K–2 Expectations: In pre-K through grade 2 all students should–

  • count with understanding and recognize "how many" in sets of objects;
  • use multiple models to develop initial understandings of place value and the base-ten number system;
  • develop understanding of the relative position and magnitude of whole numbers and of ordinal and cardinal numbers and their connections.
