Kindergarten Mathematics Module 1, Topic F

children answering question

In this module, counting becomes more complex as the numbers get bigger. Throughout the module, the students learn to be flexible with numbers to 10. Students represent, count, and compare different objects in different configurations. Lesson 23 begins with organizing and counting 9 varied geometric objects. The importance of the unit of five is stressed once again. Asking the students to place 5 of the 9 pattern blocks on a 5-group dot mat helps them to utilize the five-unit as they count. Lesson 24 continues with writing the numeral 9 and counting 9 objects in a circular and scattered configuration printed on paper. The students will strategize how to represent a path through the scatter configuration. “I numbered my objects when I counted so I wouldn’t count the same object twice.”
