Learning Numbers

When children are just learning numbers, it is important to consider that identifying a numeral and naming a numeral are different skills.

  • An example of identifying a numeral: A child is asked to point to a card with the number ‘two’ on it. He/she points to a card with the numeral ‘two’ on it.
  • An example of naming a numeral:  A child is able to say the number word ‘two’ when presented with a numeral card with the numeral ‘two’ on it.

Some children may be able to identify numerals, but find it difficult to name a numeral. As such, it is important to ensure children are given opportunities to practice both identifying and naming numerals.   Both are important for a child who is learning numbers.
