# 47 Printable Numbers For Preschool

Repeat this process with "2" and then "3" and so on. Do not work very long at one time-5 to 10 minutes-unless your child asks to do more. You may repeat this several times a day, but only for about 10 minutes at a time. You can also expand this pointing at numbers to outside the home while walking around the block looking at addresses and license plates. Numbers are everywhere, your child just needs to looks for them. If your child can start saying the name "There's a 4!" That's exciting. Be excited!

Back to number symbols. Here, we are literally talking about the symbols we use to write numbers: 1, 2, 5, 9, 12, 17, etc. No written words yet. With a young child start with just recognizing the symbols by pointing at them with you reinforcing the word. Show your child what a "1" looks like (they may already know this from reading books with you) and then ask them to find another 1 somewhere in the house. You will probably need to model for your child what you mean a couple of times. Point to the 1 on a remote control and/or a clock.

Prime numbers found little practical value until about the 1970's when public key cryptography was discovered. This procedure allows information to be coded so that only the person who knows the secret key can decipher the message. This protocol allows private information to be sent over the internet securely without the fear of such being intercepted and read by somebody for whom the information is not intended. This methodology allows us to conduct secure banking and financial transactions over the internet today.

To start understanding the meaning of numbers, physically act out what you mean by the instruction "show me two blocks." Showing your child what you want is called "modeling" and is an important skill and learning tool. Children are just learning language so do not yet depend on it. Show your child what the words mean. This helps their language skills and avoids number errors. Start having your child show you numbers of identical items. These might be items from their toy chest, items from the kitchen, items in coloring books, items from their dresser, etc.

We know in education that it takes many correct repetitions of a fact for it to be learned. We used to think that number was 4 to 10 repetitions. Now we know it is more like 20 to 50 correct repetitions, and it is probably more than that for pre-schoolers. What most people don't know is that a mistake that gets practiced requires many hundreds of correct repetitions for the mistake to be "unlearned" and for the correct answer to be learned in its place. This is the reason I am constantly stressing to stay away from skill and drill worksheets. They make repetition of mistakes very likely.

Even within your family, there will be wide variation. My son could read at three and a half years old. For my daughter, reading didn't take on meaning until half way through 1st grade. But now it is my daughter who is the voracious reader. Every child has his/her own time schedule. Take your lead from your child.
