### Count to 100 By Tens

This Counting and Cardinality lesson practices counting by tens to 100. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. For this lesson, students should already be familiar with counting to 100 by ones. A number chart and groups of ten objects are used to illustrate the concept in this lesson.

### Write Numbers From 0 to 20

This Counting and Cardinality lesson practices how to write numbers 0 to 20. Student copy does not have the Independent Practice page. Instead, students will use the provided Whiteboard Insert to practice writing numbers from slides of the PowerPoint (teacher version).

### Compare The Number of Objects in Group

This Counting and Cardinality lesson practices counting by comparing the number of objects in a group. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. For this lesson, students must be able to count objects in a group. The problems in the skill development address the following: quantities of 10 or less, quantity versus volume, and counting strategies. After Skill Development, students can use the strategy of their choice.

### Compare Numbers

This Counting and Cardinality lesson practices comparing two numbers between 1 and 10. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. For this lesson, students must be able to count to ten. It is recommended that the Compare Numbers Flashcards be used after the Skill Development/Guided Practice. This will allow students to quickly compare two numbers, after having learned the skill, eventually leading to fluency.

### Describe the Position of an Object

This Geometry lesson practices describing the position of an object (such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to). It is recommended that manipulatives are used in demonstration.
