Numbers surround us wherever we go and this makes for great opportunities when teaching your littlest ones their numerals. When you are reading, look for page numbers or other numbers such as in the price or other publishing information. Ask your little ones to look at the page and point to a particular number. When you are in the kitchen, ask your little one to look around the room and find numbers perhaps on a calendar or a clock, or displayed anywhere else.
Having your little ones look about and pick out numbers will help them to learn to identify their numbers and cement their knowledge. Stay just with single numerals rather than whole numbers that are higher than nine.
Make sure you learn zero as well as other numbers because zero is important for learning longer numbers such as 10 and 100. Also explain what zero is because it is slightly more complex than other numbers. If you have one apple or two apples, the number is obvious, but if you have no apples, it takes a little more abstract thought to equate that to zero. Of course, once they get it, it will be completely obvious to them!
