# Quick Images: Visualizing Number Combinations

Grade K / Math / Composition
CCSS: Math.K.OA.A.1 Math.K.OA.A.3

Common Core State Standards

 Math Math K Kindergarten OA Operations & Algebraic Thinking A Understand addition, and understand subtraction 1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations. Drawings need not show details, but should show the mathematics in the problem. (This applies wherever drawings are mentioned in the Standards.) Download Common Core State Standards (PDF 1.2 MB)

Common Core State Standards

 Math Math K Kindergarten OA Operations & Algebraic Thinking A Understand addition, and understand subtraction 3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1). Drawings need not show details, but should show the mathematics in the problem. (This applies wherever drawings are mentioned in the Standards.) Download Common Core State Standards (PDF 1.2 MB)
Lesson Objective
