1. The students will count objects to identify set size. 2. The students will compare sets and use this knowledge to solve problems. 3. The students will count out specific amounts and compare sets to say which have more, less, or the same amount. 4. The students will recognize that when object is removed from a set, the set size decreases by one. Skills Focus:
The students will gain practice and understanding in identifying set size, recognizing that when 1 object is removed from a set, the set goes down 1. They will begin to use counting to make precise comparisons, which will create a foundation for later work in addition and subtraction.
