Reading and Writing One, Two, and Three

In this video, we will learn how to read, write, and model the numbers one, two, and three. Here are the numbers one, two, and three. We could represent the number one using one block and the number two using two blocks. Here are three blocks to represent the number three. Let’s try some practice questions to help us read, write, and model the numbers one, two, and three.

Which box contains one bag?

We’re shown three boxes of bags. We have to choose the one which contains one bag. Let’s count the number of bags in the first box. We could use counters to help. One, two, three. There are three bags in the first box. Now, let’s count the bags in the second box. There’s one bag. This is the box we’re looking for. The third box contains one, two bags. This is the box which contains one bag.

Which tank contains two fish?

We’re shown three fish tanks. We have to select the one which has two fish. First, we need to count the number of fish in each tank. In the first tank, there are one, two, three fish. We’re looking for the tank with two fish. In the second tank, there’s just one fish. And in the third tank, there are one, two fish. This is the tank we’re looking for, the one which contains two fish.
