Learning numbers

As everyone knows it is not enough just to know how to count but the children need to recognize numbers as well.  I use these flash cards to help them do that. 
When the children come in to the classroom in the morning, before they get their breakfast, they must grab one of the cards and then come and tell me the number. 

This has worked wonders.  It has really helped them identify the numbers and remmeber them.  I believe in the drop in the bucket technique and doing this everyday does not take lots of time but does help.

Love the term "Drop in the Bucket" technique. Yes, I can see how it is motivating rather then boring.
