K.CC.4d is a NY specific standard, addressing ordinal numbers and relative position. Some states or districts might opt to include, omit, or replace this standard. Using ordinal words to describe a procedure is included in Lesson 1 and parts of Lesson 5, as well as the Application Problems in Lessons 4, 5, and 6. Consider omitting pertinent lessons partly or entirely. The fluency activity “If You’re Happy and You Know It” in Lesson 1 might be omitted as well, since it prepares students to work with that content.
Another aspect of the standard asks students to use ordinal numbers to describe relative position. If pacing is a challenge and the standard is not required, consider omitting Lesson 4 and the fluency activity “Finish Line” from Lesson 5.
Even in schools where teaching ordinal numbers and relative position is required, there are many possibilities for embedding the concept throughout the school day in practical applications (e.g., lining up for recess, lunch, or water). The concept might also appear as part of language arts or science where students use sequence vocabulary (e.g., the steps in making a cheese sandwich or the steps in the growth of a seed).
