Topic D begins by building upon the work of Module 1 by having students count 5 bears in a scattered configuration while identifying the first and last bear counted (PK.CC.6). This concept is a prelude to thinking about enough in Topic E. Students mark the first and last bear counted in a scattered configuration by underlining them and by connecting the bears in the order counted with a path (PK.CC.3a). By comparing different paths, students discover that there is more than one way to count the same number of objects.
