Why Quick Number Identification is Important for your Preschooler

Why Quick Number Identification is Important for your Preschooler

Your preschooler can count 1-10.

Your preschooler can identify each number amount correctly. 

Now what? 

Repeat. 

Repeat. 

Repeat. 

Don't rush it. Preschool is preschool for a reason.

You have plenty of time to build upon the basics. Allow your preschooler to play, maniupulate, and discover concepts on their own.

Of course, you can begin to introduce numbers above 10. However, truly mastering the numbers 1-10 will come in handy down the road. 

Why is Quick Number Identification such as automatically recognizing "This is a group of 5" Important? 

  • Quick addition - Better recognition with fast facts 
  • Better understanding of how to compose and decompose numbers 
  • Better understanding of "groups of" numbers when multiplying 
  • Allows more time to think through problem solving of word problems since the number amount is already automatically recognized.
