Counting Objects!

Students need to be able to count a variety of objects (to 20) and match written numbers.  Students need to understand what the quantity would be when you add “one more.”


  • CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
  • CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4a 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.
  • CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4b 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.
  • CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4c Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
  • CCSS.Math.Content.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.

Missing Numbers with Curious George

Help George find the number missing from the number line   

Home Connection: This is a great game to play with any number sequence.  Play this at home using sticky notes at your own child’s level.  While some students need to focus on 11-20, many Kindergarten students are ready to move on to the twenties and beyond by this time of the school year.
