Number cards are ideal for display and for support with counting. They are best printed on card stock and laminated for durability.

Recognizing numbers and knowing their names is an important first step in learning mathematics, but math education experts say that it’s also very important for children to develop number sense: the ability to relate number symbols (for example, 1, 2, and 3) to the amounts they stand for. Number sense includes these skills:

Comparing quantities (more than and less than)
Putting numbers in order
Number cards are a great way to learn this. In addition to understanding the importance of number sense, math educators must also recognize that when children are learning the meanings of the number symbols 1, 2, 3, and so on, they are actually learning several different ideas at the same time. For example, to understand the meaning of the symbol 2, a child would need to grasp all of these facts:

  • The symbol 2 stands for the spoken word “two”.
  • The symbol 2 can stand for a certain number of objects.
  • The symbol 2 can stand for the second position in a sequence.
  • When counting, 2 comes after 1 and before 3.
  • The written word two also stands for the spoken word “two”, so 2 and two mean the same thing.

This set of number cards 1 to 50 displays the number words in English and Spanish. Print in color or black and white. Two games are also included.
