## Standards in this domain:

#### CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.1 1

#### CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.2 2

Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

#### CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.3 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).

#### CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.4 4

For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
