Reading and Writing 10

In this video, we will learn how to read, write, and model the number 10. We have 10 fingers on our hands. We can use our fingers to help us count 10 objects. We could also use a ten frame to help us count up to 10 objects. A ten frame holds 10 counters. We could also use cubes or beads to help us model the number 10.

Here are a set of digit cards from one to 10. And we have 10 picture cards showing different amounts of fruit or vegetables. Let’s match the digit cards to the correct number of fruit or vegetables. Let’s start with the peaches. How many can you count? One, two, three, four. We can match this card with the number four.

Let’s count the strawberries. One, two, three, four, five. Now, we can count the cherries. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. We can match this with the number seven. Let’s count the carrots. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. Can you spot the digit card which says number 10? It’s this card. We write 10 with a one and a zero. Let’s count the peas. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. So we can place the number nine card next to the peas.

Now, let’s count the apples on the top row. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. This is the number eight card. There’s one slice of watermelon, two oranges, three tomatoes, and six grapes. Let’s practice reading, writing, and modeling the number 10.

Which cookie has 10 chocolate chips?

We’re shown three different cookies. We have to find the one which has 10 chocolate chips. Let’s count the number of chocolate chips in the first cookie. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. So this cookie doesn’t have 10 chocolate chips. Let’s try the second cookie.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12. This cookie doesn’t have 10 chocolate chips either. It must be the last cookie. Let’s count. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. This is the cookie which has 10 chocolate chips.

Daniel has placed his counters in a ten frame. A ten frame can hold 10 counters. There are five counters on the first row and another five on the bottom row: six, seven, eight, nine, 10. Daniel has used 10 counters to show his number. His number is number 10.

Pick the number that represents how many gummy bears are in the given figure. Are there nine, 10, eight, or seven?

We could use counters to help us count the number of gummy bears correctly. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. There are 10 gummy bears. The number that represents how many gummy bears are in the figure is the number 10.

What have we learned in this video? We’ve learned how to read, write, and model the number 10 and practiced counting to 10.
