I am over at Writing to be Read with a post about teaching your child to count and read numbers. There are some fun ideas for parents whose children are currently schooling at home. Thank you to Kaye Lynne Booth for hosting me.
The festive period has drawn to a close and children are back at school and parents back at work. Many of us are starting off the year with on-line learning and this can be quite challenging, especially for young learners.
Learning to read letters and numbers are vitally important as these form the basis of a learner’s future reading and numeracy skills.
There are lots of fun ways to incorporate teaching children to recognise numbers into daily tasks and family leisure activities.
One of the numbers activities my boys liked the best was singing counting songs such as One, Two, Buckle My Shoe or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Once I Caught A Fish Alive. You can download a poster which illustrates the words and read or sing them with your child. You can also clap your hands or stamp your feet as you sing to reinforce the quantities.
