CD-MA1 – The child will organize, represent and build knowledge of number and quantity.
CD-MA1.4c Matches numerals to sets of objects with the same number, 0–10.
WSO:  Shows beginning understanding of number and quantity.

Activities: Number Wall. (pinterest source)  Each number contains a dot respective to the quantity of the number.    Not really an activity but a wonderful visual if you have the wall space.

Cover Up.  Have various stars with numbers labeled on them (1-6) on a laminate sheet of paper.  Students roll a dice (one with the dots and not the numbers).  They can cover up the number for however many dots appeared on their roll.

How Many Spots? (printable here)  This is a game that you place the corresponding number of pom poms on a cow that matches to the identified numeral at the top of the page.  This game can be manipulated from cows to dogs or any other item.

Books: Pete the Cat and His 4 Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin
Counting Kisses by Karen Katz (or any of her other counting titles)
10 Chirpy Chicks by Debbie Tarbet

The key to finding books and activities appropriate for this indicator is finding something with numerals present as well as objects demonstrating numeric quantity.  While Over in the Meadow is a great book about quantity, most copies do not display the numeral on page.
