Introducing Numbers for little children

Today I am going to show you how to introduce Numbers for little learners. 
I starting to teach numbers through songs, books, and life experiences. Then, we are focusing on numbers and work on a true understanding of what those numbers mean. After that, we begin to work on rote counting. 
First of all, we start to count aloud with our baby, as soon as possible. For example, count when you are doing your morning routines, massages, or singing songs. You may have many different variations on how to use simple counting in real life with your baby. You don’t have to show him numbers, but anyway, little learners like a sponge collect all sounds and images. 
Worksheets help me with practice. You could use books-worksheets to introduce one number, for example, per month or week.

Introducing Number 1

When you and your toddler are ready for learning numbers begin with introducing number 1. I recommend starting play-based lessons with 2 years old toddler. You are free to begin earlier. But before numbers, I recommend introducing colors, shapes, and matching activities first.

Introducing number 1, it’s the first step in learning numbers. And it’s the hardest one. Because you have to present at the same time 0 (none), 1, and many (more than 1).

The main goals to introduce numbers are:

    • Recognize and identify numbers;
    • Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities;
    • Сonnect counting to cardinality.
    • Count to tell the number of objects;
Children learning through playing and doing. That why keep repeating numbers in play. Give your child meaning with clothespins and objects. Your child will be observing you and learning.
