I am in the process of teaching and my little guy is in the process of learning his numbers.
Here was a fun hands on idea.
What we used:
If you don't have all the items you could use:
Popsicle sticks, skewers cut and small noodles.
Here are our homemade abacuses. It is a great math manipulative.
While learning numbers here we have also done a number train and a number snake which my little guy has really liked also.
Here is the link for the number snake: Snake and Numbers
