This year one of my students is learning basic numbers, a skill some students find hard to understand. Here are a few ways I am breaking down the concepts to help my students understand and learn their numbers.
- Have them match basic number cards. I have created number flashcards for students to match. I am starting with matching two numbers at a time. Next, I will have them match three numbers at a time and so on.
- After the student has mastered the above basic cards, I will create them again in different colors and start the process over.
- Next, I will add plastic numbers for them to match with the cards, starting with 2 numbers, then three and so on.
- After they have mastered matching, we will start working on identifying numbers. Start with one or two numbers, and slowly work my way up when the student is ready.
I hope this help give you ideas on how to teach your students numbers. How do you teach numbers? Please leave it in the comments, as I would love to know.
