Modeling and Counting Six and
Seven.

In this video, we will learn how to
represent one object by another to help us count six or seven objects. Sometimes, counting real-life
objects can be tricky, especially if the objects are crawling around. We might have to put the bugs in a
jar before we can count them. We could also use counters to help
us. We could use a counter to represent
each of the bugs. Then, we can count the
counters. One, two, three, four, five,
six. Using counters helped us count the
bugs accurately.

Here, we have six pencils. We can represent the pencils in
different ways. We could use a ten frame, and we
could draw six squares inside. We could also draw six dots, one
dot for each pencil. It doesn’t matter where we place
our six dots. The number still stays the
same. We could also use six blocks to
represent the six pencils. We could model the same amount in
different ways. Let’s practice counting some
real-life objects now. We can use different models to
represent the objects.

Count the balls. Draw a basket for each ball.

First, we have to count the
basketballs. We could place a counter down each
time we count a ball. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven. Now, we need to find a basket for
each ball. So, we’re looking for the picture
that shows seven baskets. We can use the seven counters to
help us. We can now place a counter on each
of the baskets. One, two, three, four, five,
six.

There are only six baskets in the
first picture, but we have seven balls. And we still have one counter left
over. Let’s see if the second picture has
seven baskets for our seven balls. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven. Each basket has a ball. This is the picture which shows
seven baskets. There are seven basketballs and
seven baskets.

Count the mice. Draw a block of cheese for each
mouse.

First, we need to count the
mice. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven. Each mouse needs a block of
cheese. Which picture shows seven blocks of
cheese? Let’s draw a dot for each block of
cheese to help us count. One, two, three, four, five,
six. The first picture doesn’t have
enough cheese.

There are seven mice, and we need
seven blocks of cheese. Six is not enough. Let’s count how many blocks of
cheese there are in the second picture. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven. There are seven mice, and this
picture has seven blocks of cheese. Each mouse can have a block of
cheese. This is the correct picture. Each mouse has a block of
cheese.

Show the same number of oranges by
drawing dots.

First, we need to count the
oranges, and we’re told to show the same number by drawing dots. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven. None of the pictures look like our
seven dots. The first picture has one, two,
three, four, five. The first picture doesn’t have
enough dots. Let’s see if the second picture has
seven dots. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven. This picture shows the same number
of dots as there are oranges.

In this video, we’ve learned that
we can represent an object by another to help us count. We’ve also learned that we can
model the same amount in different ways.
