Introducing numbers

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.

  1.  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.
  2. After the student has mastered the above basic cards, I will create them again in different colors and start the process over.
  3. Next, I will add plastic numbers for them to match with the cards, starting with 2 numbers, then three and so on.
  4. 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.
