Counting using dots


A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Overview

Counting is a very useful skill! Once we know our numbers, we can use them to count the number of dots that we have. We count the number of dots or spaces that we move when we play board games.

Can you think of other times when it’s important to match one number to each item?

Using dots is a great way to practice matching one number to each item as we count to 20. We can use our finger to point at each dot as we say the next number. When we count dots, we will need to say out numbers slowly, so that we say one number for each dot.

Here you will learn how to count using dots! First let’s review the order of numbers 1-20.

Now that we remember our numbers, let’s try counting some dots!

Counting dots is a great way to practice our numbers. We can keep track of the dot that we are counting by using a finger or an arrow to point at each dot as we say the next number.

 

Practice Question 1

There is one line of dots. Counting from left to right, how many dots are there?

We can use our numbers to help us count these dots. We need to start with the green dot and say one number for each dot. We will know that we are done when we get to the red dot. That number will tell us how many dots there are.

Let’s try it!
– We are starting with the green dot, so we say “1” as we point to it. Then we point to the black dot and say “2.” We say “3” when we point to the orange dot and “4” for the blue dot. As we point to the purple dot, we say “5,” and we say “6” when we point to the red dot. That tells us we have 6 dots.

The dots can all be the same color, and we can still count them! We just need to go in order and say one number for each dot.

Counting in order from left to right is very helpful to keep track of which dots have been counted. We don’t want to count any dot more than one time, and we don’t want to miss any dots. Be sure to start at the left and move to the right.
TIP:

Practice Question 2

Look at the dots below. How many are there?

Solve this problem by pointing at each dot and saying a single number. Count the top row first, from left to right, and then count the bottom row.

Dots aren’t always organized in rows and lines. When they are in different shapes like this, it can help to mark each dot as you count it. Try to go in order. With a circle of dots, you can start at the top of the circle and work your way around it. Pay attention to which dot you started with so that you won’t accidentally count it twice.
