 Standard:
 Represent addition and subtraction by manipulating up to 10 objects:
 Teaching Practice:
 Provide opportunities for children to independently explore addition
and subtraction (e.g., using small manipulatives with egg cartons,
muffin tins and story mats; interacting with children using computer
software and handheld device applications).
