Number recognition skills can be defined as “the ability to identify and name basic numerals”.
Number recognition can actually be broken down into separate skills – matching, identifying, and naming. When matching, a child can find the matching numeral when shown an example. This is the first step in number recognition. The child perceives the differences between the numerals.
Identifying is the next step. Identifying focuses on the ability to point out a numeral when named.
The next step is naming. In this step the child can name the numeral when asked.
And the final step is matching the numeral with the quantity of objects.
