Discuss with students that you come across numbers all over the place and it is important to be able to recognize them. An example would be using numbers when they learn to tell time, or to know what the date is.


Ask students to discuss where they see numbers in pairs and have them share a few examples with the class.


The student points to the numbers from 0-10 and says their names aloud. Next the numbers appear in random order. Point at a number and have students find and hold up the matching number card. Check that the students recognize 6,7, and 8 by circling the correct numbers.

Check that students understand by asking the following questions:
Where might you see these numbers?
You can choose to write a few numbers on the interactive whiteboard and ask students to find the matching number card.
