CD-MA2 – The child will manipulate, compare, describe relationships and solve problems using number and quantity.
CD-MA2.4b Counts at least 10 objects using one- to-one correspondence. 
WSO: Counts with understanding. 

 This is a move up from where we just were in MA2.4a.  There was matching one item to another and this is attaching a number to an item.  Having six bears, pointing to each going "one, two, three, four, five, six."
It is important to note how these standards scaffold.  You begin with one and continue moving on to the next as your students master that indicator.

Activities: Board Games.  This could be Hi-Ho Cherry-O or something that you've printed and laminated.  When they roll or spin, you can not only get students identifying the numeral but then counting a number for each space or object they move.

Mother May I.  Students ask to move certain ways a certain number of times to reach an end location "Mother may I jump three times?"  Use large cardboard dice; one with actions and the other with numbers that they can roll to count out their movements.

BONUS: change your spinners and numeral dice for dot dice.  Then they also must count each dot on the side to identify the number of spaces or actions to take.
