# All About the Number 5 (Penny's Number Nook)

## Elementary / Language Arts

Hi boys and girls, welcome back to penny number 9. Yay. I'm here at the patch office in Spencer, West Virginia, and we are going to die then and learn about the number 5 today. One, two, three, four, 5. Let's find out. Okay. How do we spell the number 5? Well, let's spell it together. You ready? F, I, V, E, 5, and here's our 5. You can take your pointer or your finger. I'm using my little paint brush that I use as a pointer to trace the number 5. All about the number 5. And let's spell it one more time. F, I, V, E, 5. Okay? So how do we write the number 5? You ask? Well, let's find a writing rhyme and find out. And our writing rhyme for the number 5 is short, stick, belly, fat, number 5 has a hat. Now when you look at it, you can kind of see that. Short stick, belly fat, number 5 has a hat. Now, the number 5 is probably what I think one of the harder numbers to write. But saying this rhyme over and over to yourself helps and it makes it super easy to write. So don't stress about it. Don't worry about it. Just learn the little rhyme and boom. You've got it. Okay? Well, today I'm going to use my crayons to do the number 5. And I happen to have 9 crayons with me today, okay? I have pink, Brown, purple, black, blue, red, yellow, green, and orange. We're going to use 9 colored crayons today. So if you want to do this along with me, I will stop right now and I will wait for you to go get your paper and get your crayons. But if you don't want to use crayons, do you have to use them? No. You can use your markers or your colored pencils, whatever you have that you want to use, okay? So I'll give you a few seconds to go get it. Okay, everybody have their stuff. All right, let's get started. I'm going to start with the orange crayon and again, let's trace it one more time with our fingers so we've got it, okay? Short stick, belly fat, number 5 has a hat. Okay, you ready? Now you got your orange crayon. Take a deep breath. I can do it. Yes, I can. Let's start. Short stick, belly fat. Number 5 has a hat. See how easy that was? I feel like told you it was easy. You can do it. You're great at this. Okay, let's use the next color and the next color is going to be green. All right, let's say it again. Short stick. Belly fat. 5 has a hat. And the more you say it to yourself over and over. The faster you'll be able to do it. And you know what? I'm going to go ahead and tell you right now. All day long today, I will go around saying short stick, belly, fat number 5 has a hat. I have a habit of doing that at work. And the kids will laugh at me. They say, miss penny, you're saying the number rhyme again. All right, let's get out yellow. You ready? Short stick belly fat number 5 has a hat. Next we use. We will use red, okay? I'm not going to say it this time. This time you say it out there. Ready? That one had a long hat on that one, didn't it? But that's okay. I still know that's the number 5. Okay, next let's get out the blue crayon. Short stick belly fat number 5 has a hat. And I hope these riding rhymes are helping you each week, boys and girls to learn to write your numbers. It really is very, very helpful. I promise. All right, let's get out the black crayon. This time you say it for me. Ready? Go. Good job. Next, we're going to use purple. Okay, this time I'll say it. Short stick, belly fat number 5 has a hat. See how we're getting faster making the number 5s? We just keep practicing and saying it to ourselves and we have it. Okay, the next color is going to be brown. Ready? Short stick belly fat number 5 has a hat. Okay, so I have 8 colors there already, right? Right, and I said we were going to use 9 colors. What color is missing? Anybody guess? Let me you're right. I heard someone say pink. Pink is the color missing. All right, this one, let's say this one together. We'll put it up here at the top. Short stick, belly fat. Number 5 has a hat. Good job. All right, so we know how to write the rhyme, or we know how to write the number because we have the writing rhyme. Now let's move on to the, what's this? You're right. It's the ten frame. And what should we make today? We have to make 5 of something. So what should it be? I think today I'm going to make 5 think I'm going to make 5 sunshines today. So I'm going to get out my orange crayon and I'm going to make 5 orange sunshines. So one. Two. Is that. Okay. Three. All right, how many more do I need? I have said I have to make 5 today. I have three, so what do I have left to do? You're right. Three plus two is going to equal 5. One, and then one more. There we go. Good job. And I need to go back and color the man don't I. Of course, I should have done that to begin with, huh? Okay, so looking at our ten frame, we do not have to count them because we know automatically by looking at that. We have what? You're right. We have the number 5. Short stick belly fat number 5 has a hat. Good job. Okay, next we need to make the tally marks for the number 5. And for that one, today I'm going to use green. Let's make 5 green tally marks. One, two, three, four, and then the one that goes across. 5. Good job. So there's another way of learning to sabotage to look at it and know. Boom. That's the number 5. And let's write the 5 there at the bottom again. Short stick belly fat number 5 has a hat. Now, okay, so we spelled it, we wrote it, because we had the writing rhyme, and then we counted it with the ten frame. We made 5 tally marks, and what's left? Do you remember? Counting your right, we have to work on our counting skills. We need to know what comes before the number 5, and what comes after the number 5. So what do we need? We need our number line. You're right. So get out your trusty number line. And you can either use your finger or your pointer and I'm going to use my pointing stick. So we need to find the number 5 first. Where where's the number 5? Do you see it? Remember we're looking for short stick belly fat number 5 has a hat. You're right, it's right there. Okay, so here's our number 5. What number comes B four the 5? You're right. The number four. So let's get our crayon right there above the word before. We're going to write the number four. Down across and down some more. That's the way to make a four. Now find your 5 again. What number comes after the 5? You're right, it's the number 6. Okay, so let's get our crayon out. Find the word after, and then we're going to write the number 6. Roll a hoop and make a loop. Now, our next one we have to do, count on, and then count backwards from 5. So we're going to count four words. And then we're going to count backwards. And we're counting. Remember, we're counting up to the number 20. And we're going to start at number 5. You ready? Take a deep breath because we've got a lot of counting to do. Okay, I'm ready. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ten, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20. That was a lot of hard work, wasn't it? It was. All right, so we've counted forwards. Now let's practice counting backwards. Find the number 5 again, there. Okay, ready? 5, four, three, two, one, zero. All right, good. Job. You guys are so smart. If you're picking up on the stuff so fast, I'm so proud of you. Good job. So we had our counting skills. And we had our 5 tally marks. Then we had 5 sunshines in our ten frame. Then we had our riding rhyme. Remember, short stick, belly fat number 5 has a hat. And then we also learn to spell the number 5. F, I, V, E, 5. Good job. You guys were so great at that today. Well, as always, I have a number game that we are going to do. And for our number game, I've got my stuff in a box. For our number game today, we're going to need some index cards, and I happen to have 20 index cards. And then you need some popsicle sticks. Now you can get colored popsicle sticks at the store. Or you can use just regular popsicle sticks. It doesn't need to be the colored ones. But this game is called rainbow tally marks. So because of that, I wanted the rainbow colored popsicle sticks. Now, do you have to have popsicles? Pop sickle sticks at home to do this. No, you can use pencil and paper. You could use if you have a lot of pencils at your house. You could have a set of pencils and use those. I should have brought a set of pencils to show you. But for this one, we're going to use the popsicle sticks, okay? So enough about the sticks. Let's get them out of the way, and you need to look at our index cards. Now what I did was I drew a rainbow. Can you see your rainbow there? I know my paper's a little shiny from where of laminated them. Let me hold it up. So I have the two clouds on either side, and then I made a rainbow. I had red orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple, and then I have the number, the number one, and I, on the other cloud, I decided I would write the number word. O in E okay, now I have 20 of those. One, two, three, four, 5, 6, 7, 8, and you could have a lot of fun getting your paper out and drawing 20 rainbows and clouds. I mean, that was a lot of fun too. 9, ten, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20. All right, now once you have your set made, then you need to get your box of popsicle sticks out. And you need to take your cards and I'm gonna turn them over and I'm gonna shuffle them up, okay? Because we don't want our cards in order. We want them all mixed up. So mix, mix, mix. It's kinda hard to do. It's not like a deck of cards. Deck of cards would be easier to shuffle wouldn't they? Okay, so we have our cards and we're going to lay them face down, okay? Got it. Now we're gonna pick a card. Oh, I got a good number to begin with. Yes. What number did I get? I got the number 9. Okay, so that means I need to make 19 tally marks. And I'm gonna do that with my popsicle sticks. Ready? One, two, my popsicle sticks closer to me where I can reach them. Three, four. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ten oh, I gotta scoop my popsicle sticks out of the way here. I should have thought of that, huh? Right now I have ten popsicle sticks. Okay. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18, 19. Oh, that was a lot of counting, wasn't it? All right, so I have 19 tally marks, and when we're learning to count by 5s, we could say 5, ten, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 19 time marks. Good job. All right. Pull them off. Pick another card and what did I get? Oh, I didn't have those shuffled up very well, did I? I got the number 20. Okay, so we'll leave our number 20 there. This time I'm gonna remember to start my tally marks up top of my paper. One, two, three, four, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ten, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20. All right, good job. Let's practice counting by 5s. 5, ten, 15, 20. Good job. So see this is a fun activity you could do on a day when it's raining and we'd really like to see the sunshine and the rainbows. Well, make your own rainbow. Get out your popsicle sticks and your rainbow cards and have a great counting activity. Let's do one more. Let's see what numbers are gonna be. It's gonna be the number. 5, okay. Find our popsicle sticks. One, two, three, four, and one more. Makes 5. All right. 5, 5 matches the number 5 there. Now, with the sticks with a popsicle sticks just like that. Do you see how that activity would work if you had a set of pencils? You could just lay your pencils down the table and then place the one remember when you get four, the number 5 always kind of crosses over the top of them to kind of group them together, seals them together as a group of 5. Well, that's it for me and the number 5 and our rainbow tally marks. I hope you enjoyed this and I hope you do these activities at home and I will see you next time at pennies number nook. Bye bye.
