In Topic A, the students critically looked at objects focusing on their attributes and use. In Topic B, they use this knowledge to classify groups of objects into 2 categories that are determined for them (K.MD.3). In Lesson 5, students classify objects into three pre-defined categories, count the objects in each category, and understand that the last number said when counting the objects in each category determines the total (K.CC.4b). In Lesson 6, students sort by count. They determine which sets are twos, which are threes, and which are fours (e.g., “There are 2 birds and there are 2 flowers.) There are 3 squirrels, 3 clouds, and 3 children. There are 4 wheels on the car and 4 trees.” (K.MD.3)
