COUNT BY THREES

The next step is to learn to count by threes. We will count the red birds in the trees.
Before you play the song, let's practice some "whisper counting". We are going to count from 1 to 30.

We will whisper 1 ,2, then say the 3 loudly.
Whisper 4 ,5 and say the 6 loudly etc.

Learn the three-s with bir-ds in the trees.
You can do it quick-ly and with ease.

(Stop the music and practice counting by threes)

Look at the trees and count loudly over and over!
Notice that on the answers on the first row of trees are single digit numbers,
the second row has teen numbers, the third row twenties numbers,
and the last tree has the number 30.
