number sense

Number sense goals

There are lots of other number sense standards in the Common Core– these are simply the standards that I find the most useful. I modify the standards to create my goals so please feel free to customize my goals for your own students.

Counting

  • Kindergarten standard: Count to 100 by ones and by tens CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.1
  • Kindergarten goal 1: __________  will count to 100 by ones on three of four opportunities as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.1
  • Kindergarten goal 2: __________  will count to 100 by tens on three of four opportunities as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.1
  • If the student is struggling with counting, I will change “count to 100” to “count to 20” or whatever is more reasonable.
  • Where to find the standards: Counting and cardinality
  • First grade standard: Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120 CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.A.1
  • First grade goal: ____________ will count to 120, starting at any number less than 120 on three of four opportunities as measured by teacher observations and records  CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.A.1
  • Second grade standard: Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.A.2
  • Second grade goal 1:  _________ will count within 1000 as demonstrated by being able to count on from any number between 1 and 1000 with 80% accuracy and measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.A.2
  • Second grade goal 2: ___________ will  skip-count by 5s to 50,  by 10s to 100, and by 100s to 1000 on three of four trials as measured by teacher records and observations. CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.A.2
  • Where to find the standards: Numbers and operations in base 10

Reading and writing numbers:

  • Kindergarten standard: 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) CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.3
  • Kindergarten goal 1: Given a hundreds chart to look at, __________ will  write numbers from 0 to 20 with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations. CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.3
  • If a student doesn’t need a visual reference, take that out of the goal. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects)
  • Where to find the standard: Counting and cardinality
  • First grade standard: Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral. CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.A.1
  • First grade goal: _______ will read and write numerals to 120   with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.A.1
  • Second grade standard: Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.A.3
  • Second grade goal 1: _______ will read numbers to 1000 with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.A.3
  • Second grade goal 2:  _______ will write numbers to 1000 with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.A.3
  • Fourth grade standard: Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.2
  • Fourth grade goal: __________________  will read and write numbers to _____________ on with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observationbs CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.2
  • Where to find the standard: Numbers and operations in base ten
