# How Many and Counting Beyond 10: Free October Worksheets

Once kids have mastered the sequence and meaning of numbers up to 10, it’s time to expand their horizons. Moving to numbers beyond 10 represents a significant leap in cognitive understanding as they’re introduced to the concept of ‘teens’ and the notion of groupings of ten.

### Establishing the Teen Connection

The transition into numbers like eleven, twelve, and on to nineteen marks the conceptual shift from simply counting in tens to understanding that there are these unique, single-unit teen numbers. To make this connection concrete:

- Use materials that group these numbers together, like 10 frames or bead strings.
- Arrange objects in distinct groups, say, ten counters in one group and the remaining in another, so that the children can see the distinction of the ‘teen’ number as “ten ones and two ones,” for example.

### Encouraging Group Thinking

Another crucial step in counting beyond 10 is to start introducing groupings of ten as part of the ‘tens’ conversation. This can be made tangible through stacking, bundling, or drawing groups of ten. Mindful of not only their characteristic numeral, but the understanding that these are ‘ten’ and how that is significant in our number system.

## Kindergarten Math Skills include:

- counting one to one
- answer “how many”
- understand the last number tells how many objects
- say the number names in the standard order

## Common Core Standards for Math

**K.CC.B.4b**

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.

**K.CC.B.4a**

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.

**K.CC.B.5**

Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.

How many candies? Students count the number of candies (mixed objects) to tell how many, up to the number 20.

One to one number correspondence to show the number of mixed objects given.

## The Road to 100 and Beyond

Reaching the milestone of counting to 100 is more than just a round number; it’s a key transitional period in learning. At this stage, children are not only expanding their numeracy skills but also developing a deeper understanding of numbers as abstract concepts.

### Helping Kids Visualize the Value of Numbers

To aid in this, parents and educators can incorporate visual learning tools such as hundreds charts and number lines. These provide a concrete representation of what ‘100’ looks like, as well as the relationship of numbers in sequence.

## Common Core Math Standards

**CCSSK.CC.B.4a**

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.

**CCSSK.CC.A.3**

Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).

Counting on up to 30. Students will start with a number and then use candy corns to count on and select the new number (between 5-30).

On the Google Slides they will move a counter (circle) to cover the new number.

Worksheets that match the slides are also included. Students count the crayons (while coloring or marking) to find the new number.

Digital practice with Google Apps can be assigned through Google Classroom, SeeSaw, or other online learning platforms.
