Fun facts about Number recognition up to 20
A fun and exciting experience is for kids to be engaged in our number recognition up to 20. This is because all the exercises are made up of well-presentable chocolate blocks, which kids are more familiar with. We often do this to enable them see math in every aspect, and as such intensify its love and a readiness to learn.
With the interest of kids to appropriately learn how to count up to 20, we will present three groups of chocolate blocks. They are presented this way so that kids will be able to count and tell which one of the groups represents a particular given number.
Example – which group shows 13?
It is so striking to note that each group is made up of a full block of chocolate and other pieces besides. The full block alone is equivalent to 10. Therefore, it will be very easy to tell which group shows 13.
Since a full block is 10, we will continue counting the other pieces from number 11.
So let's begin counting from the first group
- Group 1 = 10, 11, 12 ... hmmmmm! I'll stop here, because it’s already more than 12.
- Group 2 = 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 ... hmmmmm! I'll stop here, because it’s already more than 19.
- Group 3 = 10, 11, 12, 13. This group’s last counted block is 13.
Wow! That's great.
- So, I'll just click on the second group, then continue enjoying this fun exercise by clicking again on Next.
