N is for Number

We are surrounded by numbers. Whether we are conscious of them or subconscious they are all around us and being absorbed a large majority of the time. We need to know them so we can follow instructions, an order to things or simply know what time  it is. Learning numbers is so important that it's understandable that we learn them from such a young age like our colours.

Number Hunt

You don't have to go far to discover numbers. As children learn them they can go on a number hunt around the house looking for a variety of numbers or even a trip around their village or town will reveal a certain amount.

Geocaching

It will come as no surprise that I list geocaching as a way in which little ones can learn their numbers as our family absolutely love it. Whether we are counting lights, steps or something else to work out coordinates (again made up of numbers) to the hidden location of the geocache.

Telling the Time

N is for Number

Often the clock faces we see present us with numbers. By learning these as a child we learn what time we wake up, what time we eat and go to bed. As we grow several other activities become related to time such as going to school and what classes we are to attend at what time. Here at home we have a wooden clock with shapes that we will learn to tell the time by.

Cooking

Lastly a fairly important reason for knowing your numbers is so you can make delicious food like focaccia bread . From the amount of ingredients you will need within the creation to what temperature to cook it all at. There are numbers galore in a cook book.

So there we have it four activities for recognising numbers and there's where I will stop before I cross into counting activities. Can you think of any I may have missed?

  3. You quickly forget what it's like not to know your numbers or how to read then you have small children and get rudely reminded! Some great ways here to sneak in some education without them noticing

  4. When the little man first started counting, it was all about the numbers and it still is as he's got older - the number have just got bigger! Thanks for sharing with #TriumphantTales, hope to see you again next week.

  5. I always picture numbers really strangely in my head. Usually people see them in lines - 1-10, 10-20, 20-30 etc etc. But I see them in squiggly lines and circles. It's very strange. I wonder whether it was something I saw when I was little that has stuck with me
