Putting Objects Together

In this video, we will learn how to count within 10 to find the total number of objects when we combine two groups.

Here’s some leftover fruit from snack time. How many oranges are there? One, two, three. And there are one, two apples. To help us count the total number of pieces of fruit, we could place them all together. Let’s put all the oranges and all the apples into one group. Let’s start with the oranges. Here’s one, two, three. Now, let’s add the apples. One, two. Now that we’ve put all the pieces of fruit together, we can count them to see how many pieces of fruit there are in total. One, two, three, four, five. Three and two is five. We have three oranges and two apples, and we put them all together to make a total of five pieces of fruit. When we combine two groups of objects together, it helps us to count how many we have in total.

Let’s practise combining two groups together to help us find the total.

Find the missing number. Three yellow cars and one blue car is what cars.

To help us find the total number of cars, we could put them all together in one group. How many cars do we have altogether? Let’s count. One, two, three, four. Three yellow cars and one blue car is four cars. Three and one is four. We found the total number of cars by putting the cars together into one group. Three yellow cars and one blue car is four cars.

Count the toys. Find the missing number. Five and three is what?

We’re shown two groups of toys. There are five toy helicopters and three toy trains. We have to count the total number of toys. If we put all the toys together, we can count the total. Let’s count the total number of toys. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Five and three is eight. There are five toy helicopters and three toy trains. There are eight toys altogether.

Complete: four yellow balloons and five green balloons is what balloons.

We know there are four yellow balloons and five green balloons. We have to find out how many balloons there are altogether. To count the total amount, we need to count all of the yellow balloons and all of the green balloons. Let’s count. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. Four yellow balloons and five green balloons makes nine balloons. Four plus five is nine.

What have we learned in this video? We’ve learned that we can combine two groups of objects to help us find the total.
