Number Names

banner-1183445_1920The littlelest Littlesheep has recently started to point out the numbers that he sees – when he first did it, like with the previous Littlesheeps I had no idea he knew the number names (we hadn’t sat down with the flashcards although he does have a set to play with!). I realised he must have learn them from all the incidental talking about numbers that we do so I thought I’d share some ideas with you – feel free to use the comments function to add yours too.
  1. Look for house numbers
  2. Complete number jigsaws
  3. Play with number bean bags
  4. Play number matching games like number lotto or Orchard Toys Spotty Dogs
  5. Identify numbers on car number plates
  6. Ask what number the hands on a clock are pointing to / read the numbers on a digital clock
  7. Look at books with numbers in the story
  8. Colour or decorate number outlines
  9. Get your child to press the buttons for you in the lift
  10. Identify the numbers on the scales when cooking.
