Counting Objects up to Five

In this video, we will learn how to
count up to five to answer questions about how many objects there are in a
group.

We have five fingers on each
hand. We can use our fingers to help us
count to five. One, two, three, four, five. Here’s a group of chickens. To help us count them, we could
place them in a straight line. One, two, three, four, five. There are five chickens. Another way we could count the
chickens is to place them one by one into a group. One, two, three, four, five.

We placed the objects in a group
and counted each one. There are still five chickens. We can place the chickens in a line
or the chickens in a group to help us count them. We can also use a five frame to
help us count. Each chicken has a counter. As we count each chicken, we can
place a counter in the five frame. One, two, three, four, five. A five frame holds five
counters. It can help us count up to five
objects.

Let’s practice counting up to five
and answer some questions about how many objects there are in a group.

How many flowers are there?

We’re shown a group of flowers. We have to count them to find out
how many there are. The flowers are in a straight
line. That makes it easy for us to count
them. Let’s count. One, two, three. There are three flowers.

How many bears are there?

We’re shown a group of bears. We have to count them to find out
how many there are. We could use counters to help us
count how many bears there are. One, two, three, four. We used counters to help us count
how many bears there are in the group. There are four.

Pick the five frame that has the
same number of counters as the number next to it.

We’re shown four different five
frames. Next to each of the five frames is
a number. We have to pick the five frame
where the number of counters matches the number next to it. The first number is number
four. Are there four counters in the five
frame? Let’s count. One, two. The number of counters and the
number don’t match. Four and two are not the same. The next number is number five. Are there five counters in this
five frame? Yes, there are. A five frame holds five
counters. This five frame is full. That means there are five
counters. The number matches the number of
counters.

The number is number one, but there
are three counters in the five frame. So, this number doesn’t match the
number of counters in the five frame. The number and the number of
counters don’t match here either. The number is three, but there are
four counters in the five frame. We picked the five frame that has
the same number of counters as the number next to it, the number five and five
counters.

What have we learned in this
video? We learned to count up to five by
placing objects in a line or a group. We’ve also learned that we can use
a five frame to help us count up to five objects.
