20+ Learning Tools to Teach your Children Number Recognition

In our house, numbers are recited at every given opportunity and my elder children can now confidently count to 12. However, when it comes to recognising numbers, the answer is not so good!

Over the next few weeks, the activities below shall be put into action and hopefully I will be able to report back our success at mastering this important skill!

To do list:
  • Make sure that I point out numbers at every given opportunity (house numbers, clocks etc.);
  • Count everything (stairs, snacks etc.);
  • Read books (make your own books, your child can trace and colour each number);
  • Toys (telephones, number puzzles etc.);
  • Play games (lotto, snakes and Ladders, snap, dominoes, Hopscotch, I spy - for example, 'I spy 3 of something');
  • Create a treasure hunt (they can find the next number using a clue);
  • Sing songs involving counting (10 green bottles, 5 little ducks etc.)
