Counting made simple

Children can be taught several expert techniques that will considerably improve their number-counting performance. As being a teacher, one can apply these unique techniques that create a natural fluency among the toddlers to count numbers in the fastest manner possible. Now, not a doubt that words are the foundations in a childâ€™s learning period, but similarly the essence of numbers cannot be ignored. Numbers are foundations for logic, one cannot deny. So teaching calculation methods in simplest way to the toddlers is necessary.

Some effective methods

Many times calculations can be taught to young children in a great way, that the different measures of counting numbers and performing operations on them need really fun and easy methods. As children see numbers and several calculation techniques for the first time, they find it really complex to absorb, the rules seem perplexing. But all techniques can be made easy and hence adjusted with the minds of the toddlers by taking up the course of Early Childhood Care and Education.

A very innovative approach to the learning of numbers can be made by letting the children put on several weights on a weighing machine, and then making them count the numbers appearing on the digital monitor. With decimal numbers and surds, children can treat them as whole numbers. Like 25.64 can be treated as 2564 simply, or more shortly as 25, whereby dropping off the numbers after decimal.

Another way that can be taught is by bursting bubble convulsions on a bubble wrapper. Children will count the final result of the bubble bursts. For example 6+2 is 8, so the children need to tap and burst the bubble containing the number 8.

Taking the classic cards method, it has been proved that the cards games has been quite successful in building up the base of number formation in children. These techniques are all parts of the course of Early Childhood Care and Education, that will make a teacher really productive.

Exciting ways to learn numbers

But many young learners do not understand well the numbers they are given to count on, so card games can be introduced. Many times cards can be created only with Dots, and counting these dots will generate a new number. For example if there are three dots and four dots on one card, placing the two dots together will generate a new number of 3 + 4 = 7. So this can effectively help in performing Addition.

Similarly when three cards each containing Two dots are placed together, and one of them are removed from the entire stack, then that will create the conception of Subtraction. But teachers should not allow the children to write down the numbers on the cards, as that will not help any other children in counting.
