Count the pencils. Color the five frame to show how many there are.

In the picture, we can see a group of pencils. And the first thing we’re told to do in this problem is to count them. We’re then told to color the five frame to show how many pencils there are. And we can see three possible answers. There’re five frames that have been colored in. But which one is correct? You know, five frames like this are a good way to count numbers up to five. Let’s color our own five frame in. Then, we know what to look for in the answer.

To make sure we remember which pencils we’ve counted, let’s move them every time we say a new number. One — we’ve colored one of the squares in our five frame — two, three, four. We’ve counted four pencils. And we’ve colored the five frame to show the number four. Now, which of our three possible answers shows the number four too, just like the one we’ve colored in? Well, one of the five frames we don’t even need to count. We can see that it’s completely colored in. And because it’s a five frame, it shows the number five. We want to show the number four. So this answer is not correct.

What about this five frame? Does this look the same as the one we colored in? One, two, three. This five frame represents the number three, not four. The correct answer must be this one. But let’s just count the squares just to check, one, two, three, four. We colored a five frame to show how many pencils there were. We counted four pencils. And so the correct answer is the one that shows four squares shaded.
