Well 3 plus 6 is the same thing as 6 plus 3 and that's going to be 9. 6 + 1 is 7, 6 + 2 is 8, 6 + 3 is 9. And it's good to know, just in your head, 6 + 3 is 9. 3 + 6 is 9 or you could even count them...... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Let's do another one. There were 2 sharks. 1, 2. 3 more sharks came. 1, 2, 3. How many sharks are there now? Well there's the 2 that were there before. Plus the 3 that came. So, there's 2 plus 3 sharks.
