Among other things that helped my preschool to identify number sequence, is to repeatedly see it in action.
Of course while doing so, we need to count together as well.
I prefer to include some games and activities in our daily activities, to make learning numbers more fun.
Well, kids learn best through play. And I don’t have that energy to face any kid doing their boring face.
As long as they are happy, I am happy.
