PK.N.2.1 Identify the number of objects, up to 10, in a row or column.
In a Nutshell
By the end of PreK, students must be able to count and identify how many objects are in front of them from one to ten. These objects should be laid out in a row or column to help students keep track of what they have counted and what they have not counted. This skill sets the foundation for subitizing (the ability to recognize how many are in a collection of objects without counting individually).
Student Actions
