Montessori Activity: Teaching Number Recognition with Number Cards

Age: From 3 years old

To teach number recognition and sequence of numbers in a fun way.

1. Number cards from 1 - 6

1. Bring out 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 cards one at a time and point out the corresponding number on the card for your child to recognize.

2. Arrange the cards nicely in a row on ascending order on the mat.

3. Turn over one of the cards and let your child guess the number that is overturned.

4. Shuffle the cards and invite your child to arrange it in ascending order.

Increase the complexity of the game by increasing the number of cards, once your child has mastered number recognition with 4 cards.

Additional Information:
Here is another variation of the activity with playing cards. I use the number cards from the ladybird boardgame, which is another way to play with the materials contained in the board game. We tried this today, but Joshua wasn't totally in the mood for Maths. I will try it another day.
