Learning Numbers 1-10
While counting might be a difficult concept for young kids at first, repetition is crucial. Number knowledge forms the foundation for everything they will learn in mathematics for the rest of their lives.
Numeration is discovering and understanding the "manyness" of numbers. To begin your child's number practice, focus on the "manyness" of numbers one through ten. It's generally easy to understand the concept of one. Your child has been asking for "one" of something since learning to speak! Two is also a manageable concept for your child to grasp because the idea of two has been a part of her knowledge bank since she discovered that she possessed two hands to hold things and realized that this was more than one. The real complexity begins with the number three, so that's a great place to start!
