Sharlene and her numbers

Sharlene can now count from 1 through 30 quite well and is able to recognise the numbers 1 to 10 perfectly. She learned her numbers by looking at books and I used to teach her by flashing home-made number cards to her. Another way of teaching her numbers is by playing hide and seek. First of all, I will hide some home-made numbers cards in the room (at places that are easy for her to locate) and ask her to search for the cards. After she found it, she must say out the number on the card to me. She enjoyed this game very much. She gets really proud when she found the cards and got the numbers correctly. I am proud of her too!

As for writing the numbers, I will dot the numbers and then she will trace it. At the moment, she can only write number 1, 4 and 7 independently, that is without the dotted lines. The rests of the numbers are out of shape. Lets hope she can practise more often on her writing to improve her skill.
