This blog entry will cover the Academic Standards that fall under the Number Sense category.
While repeated exposure to activities/games that include these concepts is paramount to the child's understanding, it is important to understand that a young child may not "get" a particular concept until he is developmentally ready.
One-to-One Correspondence - One-to-One Correspondence is the ability to pair one object with one number while counting objects (the child says "one" as she touches the first object, "two" as she touches the second object). A child may have one-to-one correspondence to seven or to seventy. The object is to build this until a child has one-to-one correspondence indefinitely.
Conservation of Number
In our classroom, each lesson, game or classroom material has been intentionally planned and placed in the room to fulfill our Academic Content Standards.
