Teaching Number Recognition

Teaching Number Recognition

Teaching number recognition or learning to identify and name numbers, is one of the first things a kindergarten or pre-schooler will learn how to do. It is a complicated concept because it involves much more than being able to name a number.

Traditional flash-card activities will help with recalling and naming different numbers, but this is a long way from teaching children a deep mathematical understanding about number recognition.

For this to happen children need numerous opportunities to discover and explore the connection between number names, numerals and quantity (counting).

Try these engaging hands-on activities, teacher resources and free teacher worksheets and printables next time you’re planning and teaching numeracy, for excellent results for your children!

Teaching Number Recognition Activities

Here is a collection of hands-on activities to help your students recognise, apply and understand numbers. When planning activities it is important to create a range of experiences for the students that don’t just focus on saying or chanting the names of numbers. Math programs need to include activities, games and learning experiences that teach students depth of the concept and encourages them to apply their understandings to a range of situations. Don’t Forget To Bookmark this page and check back often, we add new thing regularly!

These activities include the opportunity for your kids to learn:

  • The language of counting – the names of numbers, exposure to numbers and counting in other cultures
  • The process of counting– naming the numbers in sequence, forwards and backwards and from any starting point. Building understanding of the number sequence and how all numbers are made from combination of the same digits 0-9. Understanding that numbers are said in a particular order and there are patterns in the way we say them
  • Connect number names, numerals and quantities, including zero
  • Counting is not chanting it involves a number of steps or “Counting Principles” – understanding that each object must be counted only once, that the arrangement of objects does not affect how many there are, and that the last number counted answers the ‘how many’ question
