Digit Dog is out in the garden again. This time he is counting leaves.
See if you can find some leaves that are arranged in threes.
Put the leaves in front of you, counting in threes as you go. Now take them away and count back in threes. Write the numbers you are saying. Find the numbers on digit cards or on a number line.
Digit Dog has 4 groups of 3 leaves. He has 12 leaves altogether.
What if he had 6 groups of 3 leaves? How many leaves would he have then?
What if he had 15 leaves altogether? How many groups of 3 would he have?
Make up some questions like this to ask someone about your set of leaves.
What about finding leaves that are arranged in different numbers?
