# Count Vertically - Lesson for Kindergarten, Chapter - Counting to Tell How Many

In the "Count Vertically" lesson, kindergarteners will embark on an engaging journey to enhance their counting skills and understand the concept of cardinality—how numbers correspond to quantity—up to the number 20. This lesson falls under the "Counting to Tell How Many" chapter, which is a crucial part of the broader "Counting and Cardinality up to 20" unit. Through interactive and thematic activities such as the "Counting Big City Buildings Worksheet" and the "Counting Types of Weather Worksheet," students will learn to count objects in a vertical arrangement, which is a foundational skill for future mathematical concepts.

Understanding how to count vertically helps young learners develop spatial awareness and improves their ability to organize and compare quantities in a logical manner. This skill is important not only for academic success in mathematics but also for practical everyday scenarios, such as determining the number of items or understanding quantities in different contexts. By mastering vertical counting, kindergarteners will build a strong numerical foundation, enhancing their problem-solving abilities and preparing them for more advanced mathematical operations in the future. This lesson is designed to make learning both fun and impactful, ensuring students grasp essential counting skills early on.

• ### Activity 1 / Counting Big City Buildings Worksheet

Before your kids can go on to any further math or solving equations, they must first master the art of counting. Test your child’s counting skills right now. Ask them to count as high as they go, and see how they do. If you think your kids need some improvement, use this worksheet to brush them up. There are 3 sets of buildings in the picture. Help your kids count the buildings and then circle the correct number.

• ### Activity 2 / Counting Types of Weather Worksheet

Ask your students to look outside the window. Can they tell you what kind of weather you are having today? Warm up your kindergartners’ brains by asking them to tell you some of the types of weather they know. Now, look at this worksheet with your little ones. Point at each weather in the picture and ask your students to name the weather. Then, help them count the different types of weather. Circle the correct number.
