Use this sheet alongside the children using real double sided counters and a cup.

Give the children 5 counters to put in a cup and tip out. Explore how many are red and how many are yellow, looking at the way 5 has been made.

Once they have explored different ways, work with children to see if they understand how many red counters and yellow counters make 5.
