Count to tell the number of objects
K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
a.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order,
pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number
name with one and only one object.
b. Understand that the last number
name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is
the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they
were counted.
c. Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
