We haven't really touch on number recognition yet, so this is our beginning. Both kids can count from 1 to 10, but they don't recognize the written digits, or what they stand for. Today I just made simple cards with the number 1-3 on them. We then match the correct number of gears to the correct digit. I used similar colors for each number to help them do this. After demonstating a few times, they both could do this flawlessly. Tomorrow I will try mixing the numbers up and see how they can do.
