How to Begin Teaching Numbers

Look at the above image, what do you see? As an adult you probably see three building blocks. Try asking your child, do they see three blocks, or do they see a pink block, a blue block and a yellow block?

Recognizing and becoming sensitive to numbers is something children have to be taught from an early age and is the basis for counting, math - and quantum physics!

Try the activities below to help your child start to recognize and learn numbers.

Remember - repetition and consistency is key!

Repeat and Acknowledge Numbers

Teaching numbers starts with you acknowledging and repeating numbers in every day life so children can learn context. Anytime you have a small amount of something, try saying the number allowed.
