Discuss with students that numbers are all around us and it is useful to be able to recognize them. If you want to travel with the train, for example, you need to know which track to go to.
Practice recognizing numbers to 10 by dragging matching numbers to each other.
The teacher points to the numbers 11-20 and says them out loud. Next the numbers are in a random order. Point at the number and ask students to hold up the matching number card. Check that students recognize the numbers 16, 18, and 12 by circling the correct number.
To check understanding you can ask the following questions:
Where might you see or find these numbers around you?
For additional practice you can write a few numbers on the board and ask students to hold up the matching number card.
Students start their practice by circling all the matching numbers, then to drag matching numbers to a box, and finally by writing the given number.
