 Kindergarten - counting and Cardinality Common Core Aligned Activities

 Let's Count to 20 (ORC#: 3759) This seven-lesson unit features activities in various modalities in which students work with progressively larger sets containing 10-20 elements. They count the elements, write numerals, and make sets with more or fewer elements. They decompose and compare numbers. Activity sheets, links to Internet resources, discussion questions, suggestions for assessment, and questions for teacher reflection are included. (sw)

 Let's Count to 10 (ORC#: 3758) This eight-lesson unit features activities in various modalities in which students work with progressively larger sets containing 5-10 elements. They count the elements, write numerals, and make sets with more or fewer elements. They decompose and compare numbers. Activity sheets, links to Internet resources, discussion questions, suggestions for assessment, and questions for teacher reflection are included. (sw)

 Begin With Buttons 3: How Many Buttons? (ORC#: 4268) This lesson focuses on two main ideas: the cardinality of sets with 10 or fewer elements and the identification of buttons by multiple attributes. Students make sets of buttons with the same number of buttons or one more or one less than a given number. They play button bingo to match characteristics of their buttons with characteristics of the bingo caller's button. These activities are motivated by a story from Frog and Toad Are Friends. Activity sheets, questions for students, assessment options, references, and questions for teacher reflection are included. (author/sw)

 Begin with Buttons 1: Button Trains (ORC#: 4266) In this lesson, students make button trains and describe order using vocabulary such as before, after, and between. They describe position using ordinal numbers up to 10. They relate these activities to popular children's songs. Activity sheets, song lyrics, questions for students, assessment options, references, and questions for teacher reflection are included. (author/sw)

 Cardinal Numbers: An Ohio Counting Book (ORC#: 11829) This professional resource provides classroom-ready ideas for using the book, Cardinal Numbers, to support mathematics learning in the classroom. The book takes students on a journey through Ohio to count and learn about interesting Ohio gems such as the Goodyear blimp, the Erie Canal, and whistles made in Columbus. Young students can count objects on each page while teachers can read aloud margin notes full of interesting Ohio facts and information. Students will also enjoy looking for the buckeye nuts hidden throughout the book. The book concludes with ten Ohio mathematical problems to solve or think about. The facts, information, and problems will appeal to older students studying Ohio history. Cardinal Numbers, available in many libraries, has illustrations that support counting and learning about Ohio. Teachers can go to the Ohio Resource Center Mathematics Bookshelf to find other outstanding trade books that support mathematics learning in K-12 classrooms. The bookshelf offers teaching ideas, mathematics standards alignment, and a list of related ORC resources for each book. (js)

 Ten Frame (ORC#: 13663) This is a good interactive white board tool for teaching with 10 frames. This interactive, online game features four activities designed to develop students' counting and addition skills. Activities involve counting and identifying how many items or empty spaces are in the ten frame; filling empty spaces with circles, bugs, stars or apples; and dragging items to complete simple addition problems. The four activities can be played individually or scrambled together for an extra challenge. When playing this game, students will be practicing counting, using number facts, and reinforcing mathematical understanding of the number combinations up to ten. (author/js)
