Our ten birds number 10 worksheet is fun, friendly, and interesting to young curious minds. Clipart images just don't have the same impact and we want to inject even the more relaxed learning exercises, like writing, with some quiet joy.
Our biggest enemy as educators is learning that is dull, lifeless, boring, an obligation... something they don't want to do but have to do. Fostering discovery, interest, and awe in numbers is certainly possible.
Each positive learning experience can open the way to others. Can you catch those moments of pride and praise the process that brought them there plating the seeds of growth? It's a wonderful challenge us educators have taken on, that taken along with the sometimes stressful reality, means succeeding even half the time is a remarkable achievement.

Test out your creative potential and see how many opportunities you can find throughout the day for your child/children to experience numbers and the number 10. A real lived experience will be innately interesting to your little ones.
Are there songs you might sing? Experiences you might plan? like letting them buy something for £10 or 10p? Maybe you could speak to someone in your local shop beforehand to let them in on what you're doing?
Creating tailor-made opportunities of experiencing the power and potential within numbers for them and their future is a nice goal I reckon... Give them something to excite them, a nice big "why" to fuel their desire to learn.
How about a game? You could play ten-pin bowling? Either the real-life version or with a free app. No need to push the learning I think, just playing is learning and familiarity itself.
If you have some playing cards handy you could make up a fun game where finding the a ten is the aim? and of course, anything can turned into a game if there is a challenge and a prize. Can you think of ten animals? ten foods? ten pieces of clothing? ten names?
If they spot a ten somewhere... that is HUGE! They just recognized a ten in real life! Imagine what was once just squiggles becomes something that means something...
I'd love to hear about any experiences you were able to create for your children where they experienced the number ten in real life? and what's worked well for you when it comes to teaching the number ten?
