Learn number 9 with songs, videos, games, printable worksheets and the other preschool number activities.
Learning numbers and how to count should be an enjoyable experience for you and your child, a shared time together. So make sure that your child is switched on and not tired before you start the activities on this page. Keep the time spent appropriate to the child's age and their level of concentration. Boost your child's confidence using praise and encouragement. Celebrate their success.
How to help your child with the game:
The game consists of 8 pages in a "bugs and garden creatures" theme. Talk about the activities on each page and make sure your child understands what they are to do. Let them talk about the pictures, name and count the characters in the picture. Talk to your child about the shape and significance of the number. This will give your child a context for the activities. Remember this is for entertainment as well as being educational, so stop before your child loses concentration or becomes restless. This will ensure that they want to return 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.
Your child should write the number 9 without taking their pencil off the paper. This is difficult as children frequently draw the circle and then add the stick. Encourage your child to point at each object as it is counted.
