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.


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.


Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.


Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
