Three-year-old children are usually taught numbers from 1 to 10. At this stage, children are expected to begin recognizing numbers as well as counting objects in their environment.
When it comes to online games, there are many options that can help 3-year-olds learn about numbers in a playful and educational way. Some examples of online games that can be useful include:
- Number recognition games: these games can help children recognize numbers and associate them with their name. They can be simple games in which children are asked to select the correct number shown on the screen, or more advanced games in which they are asked to match numbers to objects or quantities.
- Counting games: these games can help children practice counting and associating numbers with quantities. They can be games in which children are asked to count objects on the screen and select the correct number, or games in which they are shown a quantity and asked to select the corresponding number.
- Puzzle games: these games can help children associate numbers with their position in a number sequence. They can be games in which they are shown a sequence of numbers with one or more numbers missing, and children are asked to complete the sequence.
⚠️ It is important to remember that online games should not be the only way children learn about numbers. It is also important that children have the opportunity to interact with objects and print materials that include numbers, and that they are asked questions to help them identify and name numbers, and count objects in their environment. ⚠️
