Learn number 1 with songs, videos, preschool number games and printable worksheets.
Preschool number activities should be a fun and enjoyable experience for both you and your child, a shared time together. So make sure that your child is alert and not tired before you start the activities on this page. Keep the time spent, appropriate to the age of the child and their level of concentration, boost your child's confidence using praise and encouragement. Compliment their success.
How to help your child with the game:
Talk about the activities on each page and make sure your child understands what they are to do. Let them talk about the pictures. Number 1 consists of 8 pages and is based on the farm theme, so talk about the farm, name the farm animals, objects, etc. Talk to your child about the number, how it looks, the shape of it and whether it is significant. For example, is it like the number of your house, the number on a car, etc. Activities will add to the interest level for your child. Remember this is for fun as well as being educational, so stop before your child loses concentration or become restless. This will ensure that they want to come back for more!
Encourage your child to color in the illustrations. This develops pencil control, improves eye and hand coordination, and builds up concentration. Make sure there is a range of colored pencils or felt-tip pens available. Crayons are usually too thick for such activities. For writing and drawing, your child needs a sharp and soft pencil. If it is too hard they will have difficulty seeing their work, which will lead to frustration.
Writing numbers and letters should always start from the top and keep within the guidelines. Encourage your child to write in a continues movement. Dots are provided to help your child practice writing the number and the word on their own.
When counting, encourage your child to put their finger on each object as they count.
Match by drawing the line from number 1 to the group that only has one. The child doesn't need to know how many are in the other groups, only that they have more than one. They can color all the pages if they wish to.
