Mason is sorting pictures into groups. Help him to find pictures to go in each group. What could go in this group?

This group contains a number card and two picture cards that Mason’s already sorted. Can you see the number on the number card? It’s the number four. And so the pictures that Mason has chosen have both got four objects in them. Let’s count the carrots: one, two, three, four. Let’s count the children: one, two, three, four.

So which of these pictures could go in Mason’s group? Let’s count the cars: one, two, three. There are three cars. Let’s count the bicycles: one, two, three, four. There are four bicycles. Lastly, let’s count the flowers: one, two, three, four, five. And so the picture of flowers shows five flowers.

Which one of these pictures belongs in Mason’s group? We know that Mason has sorted all the pictures with four in them. And so the picture that belongs in Mason’s group is the picture of the bicycles because there are four bicycles.

Let’s try another question. What could go in this group?

This time, our number card shows a different number. We need to sort pictures with three in them. Can you see that there are three apples? And so, as well as the three apples, which other picture belongs in the group? Let’s count the objects on each card: one, two, three, four, five. There are five flowers. One, two, three. There are three cars. One, two, three, four. There are four bicycles. And so the picture that belongs in this group is the picture of the cars because there are three cars.

Let’s try one more example, without a picture clue this time to help us. What could go in this group?

This time, all we have is a number card. But we can see we’re looking for five objects because the number five is on the card. If we quickly count the objects in each picture, we can see that there are three cars, there are four bicycles, and there are five flowers. And so we can sort the picture of the flowers into this group because there are five flowers.
