Milestones

Numbers

You might notice that:

  • I can use some number names and words, such as “more than” and “fewer than”, when I am playing.
  • I can say numbers in order from 1 to 10.
  • I know that numbers tell me how many things there are altogether, like 8 biscuits on a plate.
  • I use my fingers, pictures or marks to show you how many things there are.
  • Sometimes I can match a numeral to the right number of things, like “3” when there are three balls.
  • I am interested in numbers, and talk about them and ask you questions. I talk about the numbers I see when we are out.
  • I know when there are the same number of things, like two cakes – one for you and one for me.
  • I show I’m interested in playing with numbers when I share things out in different ways, like putting my 10 farm animals in two and then three fields. I’m beginning to know there are still 10 animals.
  • I am interested in making marks and calling them numbers.
  • I know that I can count claps and jumps, as well as things like apples and buses and dinosaurs.

How you can help me learn:

  • Make a train shed with numbers on so that I can match my trains into the shed with the same number on it.
  • Put numbers on a skittles game made from plastic bottles. Ask me what number was on the bottle I knocked down.
