CD-MA1 – The child will organize, represent and build knowledge of number and quantity.
CD-MA1.4e Quickly recognizes and names how many items are in a set of up to four items.
WSO: Reasons quantitatively and begins to use some tools.

Activities: Dice Games.  The internet is full of them; printables or board games.  There are so many dice games out there.  The key here with this indicator is that the child recognizes the number they roll without having to count it.  That's why you're playing the dice game; to help teach that skill.

Dominoes.  Play dominoes with the students.  Use actual dominoes and not the cutesy picture cardboard dominoes.  Again, we're trying to build that immediate number recognition or a small number of items.

Card Games.  Remember that more or less game that we did?  Yes, while games like that help to build other skills they can also work on building the immediate number recognition as well.

Books:  Every book so far listed with numbers and quantity are an excellent source for this indicator as well.
