It’s also important for them to learn by doing. Here are some simple activities you can do with your child to help them get familiar with numbers.
- Have them point out the numbers they see around you on signs, cars, and other places.
- Draw a number of items (circles, squares, etc.) on a piece of paper and have them count the items with you.
- Write the numbers 1 through 10 on index cards and cut them into pieces. Have your child put the numbers in order by putting the pieces together like a puzzle.
- Show your child how to write the numbers 1 through 10 over and over again on paper or in a notebook, either tracing or freehand depending on their skill level.
- Ask your child to show you how many fingers to hold up for different numbers (2 fingers for 2, 3 fingers for 3).
- Finally, try out this matching game. Ask your preschooler what their favorite color is, then ask them to match up each object with its corresponding number card. Talk about why they like each one and how they know what color they are.
