Transcript One More Than

: "What are you doing, Henry?" : "I'm preparing for our picnic! : "What are you making?" : "Lemonade!" : "That sounds great, but maybe we should add one more thing?" Skylar and Henry are preparing for a picnic and want to bring lots of things. Let's help them learn about 'one more than.' Has anyone ever said to you ‘one more minute!’ or “one more treat, and then you’re done!’ What does ‘one more’ even mean? When we talk about ‘more’ we are adding to what we already have. If someone says one more minute that means we are adding more time. Another way to think about one more is birthdays! If you are three years old and you have one more birthday, how old are you? Four! So, one more than three is four. Now that we know a bit about one more, let's help Henry and Skylar create the perfect picnic. Henry is making brownies for dessert. He has five right now, but wants to add one more. What is one more than five? There are many ways to find one more. Let's use a number strip first! Start by circling the first number, five. Next, count one more. That's the answer! How many brownies will Henry bring? Six! One more than five is six. Next, Skylar wants to bring some plushies. She has seven small plushies and wants to bring one more. How many plushies will she have altogether? This time we can count to find the answer. Start with seven fingers. Then, add one more. The number of fingers you have in total is the answer! What is one more than seven? Eight! Finally, Henry is gathering some toy trains to play with. If he has eight trains and wants to add one more, how many trains does he have? This time we can use drawings to help count. We can use a circle for each train. Start by drawing eight circles for the first number. Next, draw one more circle, for one more train. The number of circles you have is the answer! How many circles are there? (...) Nine! So, Henry will bring nine trains with him. Before we go on our picnic, let's review. Today we learned about one more than. Remember the word more means addition... and that you can use different ways to count on to find the answer. Always start with the first number. Then, add one more. Finally, find the total number. That's the answer! Now, I think it's time for a picnic! : "Henry? Can you carry the backpack? It's too heavy for me!" : "I don't think I can..." : "I guess we'll have to take the train instead of walking then!"
