Building on the knowledge of Topic B where the students practiced one-to-one counting of objects in a category they transition to answer how many questions of objects and dots in linear, array, circular, and scattered configurations. This begins by counting groups of objects in horizontal rows and vertical columns to 5. To reinforce the understanding that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted the students sort groups of objects by count and match to digit cards. Lesson 8 continues with counting to 5 and focuses on the idea that the number of objects counted stays the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted. This is accomplished by students counting 4 in linear and array formation and showing the number 4 on their fingers in different ways.
