Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) K resources related to the following standard:
Number and Operations in Base Ten
Work with numbers 11—19 to gain foundations for place value.
1. Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.

In this 8-minute video kindergarten teacher Karen Lassiter models a lesson designed to help children understand place value with the numbers 11-19. She explains her use of a 10-frame in developing understanding of counting on, addition, and notation. The resource includes reflection questions for viewers, a transcript of the video (doc), and a lesson plan (pdf).

This virtual manipulative is a Java applet that allows students to explore concepts in whole number operations and fractions, just as they would with a physical manipulative such as Cuisinaire Rods. The user can add bars of length 1 to 10 to the workspace, change their color, and move, duplicate, or remove them. Instructions for using the applet and teaching ideas for parents/teachers are available through the links at the top of the page.

This intereactive Flash applet helps children learn grouping, tally marks, place value, addition, and subtraction. Students help the alien spaceship move cows into corrals by counting by 5s and 10s. They also can apply those grouping skills to practice adding and subtracting two-digit numbers with regrouping. Audio cues and prompts reinforce the user's actions and facilitate counting and the development of math language.

This 42-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the Kindergarten level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades 1-5.

This page provides examples of Kindergarten Number (Counting and Cardinality, Operations and Algebraic Thinking, and Number and Operations in Base Ten) activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files listed are in PDF format.

In this 6-lesson unit students develop concepts of number, relationships between numbers, and equality. They make groups of 10 to 20 objects, connect number names to the groups, compose and decompose numbers, and use numerals to record the size of a group. Each lesson includes visual, auditory, and kinesthetic activities, as well as student activity sheets, questions for teachers and students, ideas for assessment and extensions, and links to electronic applets.

This shockwave applet develops a student's place value concepts and number sense through practice with base ten models. Learners are given a target number and move the base ten blocks (ones or tens) to a central mat to represent that target number. The program offers different skill/ability levels. Several representations of the final result are shown.
