{re-Kindergarten Standard 2: Number Sense-The child will


understand the relationship between numbers
and quantities.
3. Develops increasing ability to count in
sequence from one to ten.

Kindergarten Standard 2: Number Sense- The student will

and quantities.
4. Count objects in a set one by one from one
through ten.

First Grade Standard 2: Number Sense- The student will


read, write and model numbers and number
relationships. The student will use models to
construct basic addition and subtraction facts
with whole numbers.
1.cNumber Sense
a.cUse concrete models of tens and one to
develop the concept of place value.
b.cCompare objects by size and quantity
c.cRead and write numerals to 100.
Second Grade Standard 2; Number Sense- The student will use
numbers and number relationships to acquire
basic facts and will be able to compute with
numbers less than 100.
1.cNumber Sense
a.cUse concrete models of hundreds, tens
and ones to develop the concepts to the
reading and writing of numbers.

Third Grade Standard 2: Number Sense- the student will use


numbers and number relationships to acquire
basic facts. The student will estimate and
compute with whole numbers.
1.cNumber Sense
a.c{lace value: model the concept of place
value through 4 digits. Read and write
whole numbers up to four digits.

Fourth Grade Standard 2: Number Sense- The student will use


numbers and number relationships to acquire
basic facts. The student will estimate and
compute with whole numbers and fractions.
1.cNumber Sense
a.c{lace value-apply concept of place
value through digits. Model, read,
write and rename decimal numbers to the
hundredths.

Fifth Grade Standard 2: Number Sense-The student will use


numbers and number relationships to acquire
basic facts. The student will estimate and
compute with whole numbers, fractions and
decimals.
b.cIdentify and compare integers using
real world situations. (owing money,
temperature, or measuring elevations
above and below sea level.)

Sixth Grade Standard 2: Number Sense- The student will use


numbers and number relationships to solve a
variety of problems. The student will estimate
and compute with integers, fractions, and
decimals.
1.cNumber Sense: Convert, compare and order
decimals, fractions and percents using a
variety of methods.

Seventh Grade Standard 2: Number Sense and Operation- The


student will use numbers and number
relationships to solve a variety of problems.
1.cNumber Sense
a.cCompare and order positive and negative
rational numbers.

Eighth Grade Standard 2: Number Sense and Operations- The


student will use numbers and number
relationships to solve a variety of problems.
1.cNumber Sense: Represent and interpret
large numbers and numbers less than one
in exponential and scientific notation.

1.cHow have the {ASS objectives grown or increased in

difficulty from grade to grade?

The pass objective number sense is a concept that grows in

more difficulty with each passing grade. It is one that is

preset in each grade of elementary and in my opinion is one of

the most important. It starts in {re-K and is simply getting the

students familiar with numbers and beginning to count. With each

new grade the students must develop their number sense by

becoming familiar with the concept of place value as well as

operations such as subtraction and addition.

By the fourth grade the objectives increase in the knowledge

of place value, as well as being able to read and write decimal

and fractions. By the fifth grade the student should be capable

of working confidently with decimals and fractions as well as

working with integers in real world situations such as counting

money or writing temperature in degrees. As the student

continues to move on the objectives require them to complete

multiple operations with fractions and decimals such dividing,

multiplying, etc. During the seventh grade year the objectives

introduce working with negative numbers, square roots and

becoming familiar with geometric shapes. By eighth grade the


objective has moved onto even more complicated issues such as

knowing the exponent¶s rules, and be capable of practicing

scientific notation.

2.cWhy do I teach Number Sense in Kindergarten? I think that

some people underestimate the importance of the

kindergarten age. I believe that at this young age children

are soaking in everything and this is when they capable of

vast amounts of learning. If anything the Kindergarten

grade, should be stressed as one of the most vital grades.

Not only is Kindergarten one of the most important grades,

but Number Sense is vital to every single grade. If I

taught kindergarten I would spend a lot of our class time

focusing number sense. Because they are soaking in

information this is an important time to establish a

comfort and confidence in working with numbers. By

stressing activities that involve number sense it hopefully

get the children use to math so that when they move on and

are faced with new challenges they will not be intimidated.

3.cHow does it prepare my students for the next grade?

Because Number sense is in each grade from {re-K through

the eighth grade, it is vital that it is worked on and taught

effectively in each grade. The reason is because the abilities


to recognize, work with different numerical operations or

number sense is an extremely important factor in the real

world and in mathematics in general. Since each new grade

increases in difficulty the student must always be learning

new varieties of number sense to increase their skills.

To prepare students for the next grade teacher should always

be adding to their number sense. When this is done correctly not

only does the child¶s knowledge increase but hopefully so does

their confidence and understanding process. This only benefits

them as they continue to move on in school. They have a strong

foundation of number sense which prepares them for the next

grade and each new year that foundation is added to with new

skills which keeps preparing them for higher grades as well as

the real world.

4.cWhere does the {ASS strand start and how does it change and

grow and where does it end?

The Number Sense strand begins at a very early age. It

first starts in the {re-K level. As I mentioned above in

the grades {re-K through second the students are becoming

familiar with numbers and gradually engaging in

subtraction, addition, and place value. The strand

continues to change by becoming more complicated.


As the objective moves on into the older age groups it once

again becomes more difficult. In the sixth grade the

objective is primarily composed of adding, subtracting

fractions and decimals. The students must also be capable

of dividing and multiplying fractions, decimals and be

capable of working with integers in real world situations.

In the seventh grade the objectives requires the students

to begin working with negative numbers and become familiar.

The number sense strand ends in the eighth grade. At this

time the objective requires the capabilities of working

with integer¶s exponents, learning exponent rules, the

abilities to simplify numerical expressions with rational

numbers and the ability to use scientific notification.

5.cLesson/Activity:

I chose an activity that would be a great tool for

kindergarten. As I mentioned above I feel very strongly that

this age is an important time to introduce number sense. The

objective at this time is for the students to learn to count a

set from one through ten by one by one. The ten frames would

do exactly that.

The ten frame is a two by five chart with ten empty spaces.

Using counter or stickers the student fill each individual

space, saying the number aloud. They learn the correct


sequence of the numbers as well as counting from one to ten.

The teacher can also hand out frames that already have spaces

filled with stickers. The students would then have to count

out loud the number of spaces filled and write the number on

the paper. The teacher can also have count the empty spaces.

Once again their counting skills are engaged and they have an

opportunity to practice writing out numerals which prepares

them for the first grade. I truly believe that when students

are successful and engaged early on they will continue a

successful academic career.
