Understanding the meaning of a number through number games
Kids learn to count from a very early age, but they don't necessarily understand what the numbers represent.
As kids grow they learn to understand the meaning of numbers, the amounts they represent and their sequential order.
The following number games were designed to establish the understanding of the mathematical meaning of numbers: sequence, amount, bigger than, smaller than, etc..
Who is quicker?Number of players: two or more
Accessory kit for each player: a box containing objects of different shapes and sizes, number cards, a piece of paper divided into six squares.
Allotment of time for representing the number. The shorter the time the child has the more challenging it becomes.
Who's missing?Number of players: two or more
After you have removed a number from the line, mix the remaining numbers up and ask the child to work out which number is missing.
Who am I?Number of players: two or more
The more skillful the child becomes at asking questions, the more you may challenge him to finding the number by restricting the number of questions that may be asked.
