# Kindergarten - Count Up To 30

 Grade Level: K Skill: Numbers Topic: Count up to 30 Goal: Count, recognize, represent, name and order a number of objects (up to 30). Skill Description: Recognize common geometric shapes and name them. Count objects and sort them based on their attributes. Put objects in sequential order.

### Sample Problems

 (1) Name the shape that has three sides. (2) How many sides does a square have? (3) Put the numbers 19, 7, 26, and 2 in order from least to greatest. (4) Draw ten circles.

### Learning Tips

 (1) Write the numbers 0 to 9 on a paper and explain to her/him that all numbers are made up of these numbers. Have some crayons nearby. Explain that counting form 0 to 9, the numbers get bigger. Represent this with the crayons. 1 stands for 1 crayon (eraser, pencil, etc.,), 2 stands for two crayons, 3 for three crayons and the numbers increase. (2) After you reach nine, ten is formed with two digits. At this point have the number line 0 to 9 at the top o the page. The number 1 is the leader and it will take 0 as its partner to make the number 10. Then the number 1 is the leader and will take its twin 1 as a partner and make the number 11. Point out that it is moving in sequence along the number line 0 to 9. Then 1 will take 2 as its partner and make 12….until it makes 19. Then 1 runs out of partners and so it 2’s turn. Repeat the pattern until the numbers run out and it’s 3’s turn and makes 30. (3) Review common objects: hearts, ball, squares, kites, trees, flowers etc.,

### Extra Help Problems

 (1) First worksheet: Have numbers 0 to 30 written on the top half with all the even numbers missing. On the bottom half, have numbers 0 to 30 written with all the odd numbers missing. Student should fill in the missing numbers. (2) __, 1, __, 3, __, 5, __, 7, __, 9 (3) __, 11, __, 13, __, 15, __, 17, __, 19 (4) __, 21, __, 23, __, 25, __, 27, __, 29, __ (5) Are the missing numbers odd or even? _________ (6) 0, __, 2, __, 4, __, 6, __, 8, __ (7) 10, __, 12, __, 14, __, 16, __, 18, __ (8) 20, __, 22, __, 24, __, 26, __, 28, __, 30 (9) Are the missing numbers odd or even? __________ (10) At the top of the page have a box with the names of the objects inside of it: heart, cloud, star, moon, tree, sun, chair, etc., Below have the picture of each object with a blank line below it. The student can write the name of the shape on the line or draw a line from the word in the box to the picture (the latter option for student having difficulty with writing). (11) Have five distinct shapes inside a box. Have several of each type of shape: 5 bicycles, 7 tires, 4 baseballs, 10 bats, and 15 basketballs. Ask the student to color the bicycles red, the tires black, baseballs white, bats brown, and the basketballs orange.
