When Should My Toddler Learn to Count to 10?

Math is all around us and from the moment children start exploring the world, they are learning. Whether they are identifying shapes, recognizing patterns, or predicting events, these are all mathematical concepts that develop as a child ages. But, at what age do children start to understand numbers?

The truth is, children will recite numbers before they actually understand the concept behind them. Though every child is different, most toddlers will be able to count to 10 by the time they are two-years-old. At this point in time they are probably repeating them mostly by memory and have yet to understand what they actually mean.

This concept is known as “rote” counting. Rote counting is when a child can say numbers in order, and is mostly learned through hearing the numbers repeatedly said out loud by others. 

Do you feel like your child should be counting by now?

Take this free cutting-edge 3-minute quiz. You will find out if your child is on track with his milestones and receive a free report with a personalized plan of learning. Speech Blubs is full of activities to encourage speech development!

When rote counting to 10, children may be able to cite numbers in order or may jump from number to number randomly. The more they hear others count, the more confident they will become in reciting the proper number orders. 

Note: Don’t panic if your child is not able to count to 10 by the time they are 2-years-old. This is the average age that children learn to count, but is by no means definitive.

All children learn at their own pace and some will learn more quickly than others. You can help your child learn numbers by working with them on a regular basis and engaging in toddler math activities.

When Do Children Understand Basic Math Concepts?

We mentioned above that even though most toddlers can cite their numbers by 2, they don’t necessarily understand the concept behind them. Children don’t actually start to understand the concepts of counting until between 2-4 years of age. 

The first sign that your child is starting to understand the concept behind numbers is with a skill known as one-to-one correspondence. You will often see this during playtime. One-to-one correspondence is when children start to group objects, pointing to each one as they count them. Again, this math skill is often learned by copying others. 

The next stage is understanding what these numbers represent. For example, if you count “one,” “two,” “three” cars, then there are three cars total in that group.

Once children start to understand this concept, the next stage is pairing numbers with their written numerals. Most children can start to understand this pairing by their preschool years, or 3-4 years of age. 

Other mathematical concepts that are usually developed by the preschool years include the ability to recognize shapes, use classifications (height, size, etc. ), use spatial awareness for puzzles, and start predicting cause and effect relationships.

9 Early Math Games for Kids Learning to Count to 10

Here are some early math games for kids that you can do with your toddler to help them learn numbers and to count to 10:


Coin counting game

If you give a toddler a beautiful toy, what will they want to play with? A box. This is because toddlers love “real-life” toys and often prefer them to plastic kids’ toys.

With a toddler, things like boxes, pots, and pans, and money will attract more attention than any toddler toy – so why not utilize this to your advantage?

To encourage counting for preschoolers, let them count coins. At the same time, you can work on sorting the coins by size and on learning the different values of the coins. Each of these are mathematical concepts that will develop over time, but that you can encourage by practicing regularly.

2. Magnetic fishing game

You can purchase magnetic fishing games at almost any store that sells children’s toys.

These games are exactly what you would think they are – children use a magnetic pole to go “fishing” for magnetic fish.

Encourage your child to count the number of fish as they catch them. Not only will this encourage counting, but it will also help them with their hand-eye coordination.

3. Songs about numbers

Children love to sing and dance, and singing songs together is a great way to enhance learning. It is a perfect math game for kids, since they won’t even know they are learning! And when it comes to counting to 10, there are many songs out there that can help your child learn.

All you have to do is search YouTube for “number songs,” and you can choose from a long list of catchy tunes to help your child learn their numbers – and have a blast while doing it.  

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of the classics, when it comes to teaching counting for preschoolers.

4. Get active while counting

When it comes to learning, we always like to encourage you to get your children outside. And when it comes to mathematics, nature is one of the most educational places your child can be.

Why? Because there are examples of math all over – the symmetry of a snowflake, the pattern of a pinecone, the geometry of a honeycomb, the height of different trees – math is everywhere you look. Of course, you can’t expect your toddler to understand the geometry of a honeycomb, but you can encourage them to count outdoors. **You also might check out Jon Scieszka’s bestseller, The Math Curse, for a fun story about a child who encounters math in everyday activities.

Go for a walk, choose a piece of nature (i.e., a tree), and see how many you can count on your way.

5. Speech Blubs’ “Numbers and Me” section

Speech Blubs is a speech therapy app that can help toddlers and young children to work on their speech. It can be used by all children, including those at a “typical” developmental level, and those with developmental speech delays due to conditions like autism or other learning disabilities. 

The NUM8ER5 AND M3 section of the app puts elementary numerical concepts on the tips of children’s tongues. It is a great early math game that you can use to teach counting to preschoolers.

Speech therapists will tell you that as children learn, the brain processes mathematical and linguistic stimulus in completely different locations of the brain. But, by doing exercises that target both of these neural centers simultaneously, you can help pave new neural networks within the brain. 

When using Speech Blubs, children’s participation will be rewarded with fun facts that show how various numbers appear within the world, on our bodies, and within society in general. Regular updates of fresh and new content keep the app exciting and interesting for young ones. 

Remember, however, that while the app works to help kids learn numbers and the concepts behind them, children always reap the most benefits when their parents participate. In return, it’s important that you make time to laugh along, mimic the speech models with your child, and extend the ideas on the app into the real world so that they can gain more context.

The more time you spend doing toddler activities and using the Speech Blubs app with your child, the more benefits they will receive from it.  

Teach numbers with Speech Blubs! Our fun section, NUM8ERS & M3 will help your toddler learn counting and develop his number sense in no time!


Go on a Numbers Hunt

Draw numbers from 1 to 10 on large pieces of paper. Tape them on the objects around the playroom or in your living room. For example, one can be on a chair, two can be on the couch, three in the corner, four on the wall, five at the window, etc.  When you shout out a number, your child has to go to that number and point to any object they represent! If they struggle you can give them clues. This activity is best for kids aged 3 or 4 when they have already learned the numbers by rote. It is also fun physical activity if you tell them they have to be as fast as possible or if you have more kids in the room who can compete to arrive first at the right number.

Trace the Numbers

For this one, you need masking tape. Tape the shape of a number on a big piece of paper and ask your little one to trace them with colored pencils or sharpies. Besides the number writing practice, this activity is also great for working on their fine motor skills! If they like it, it can keep them occupied while you take some time off, prepare a meal, etc.

8. Sort the Colorful Mini Pom-Poms

Take an egg carton, and write a number in each of the egg compartments. Color each with a specific color. Now find objects to fit in the egg compartment that are the same color. This can be paper clips or small fluffy pom-poms you can get in the dollar store. Now match the number of pom-poms with the number and color in an egg compartment. For example, 1 yellow pom-pom, 2 red pom-poms, 3 green pom-poms, etc. Give your toddler the exact number of pom-poms for each color! Mix them up, and ask your child to sort them. They will be sorting for hours, learning colors and numbers at the same time.

9. Count with Legos

If you have Legos or any other toy building bricks at home, you can simply count them and learn numbers. Write numbers from one to 10 on a piece of paper. Below each number write a square or a box. Ask your child to put one Lego brick in the box under the number one, two under the number two, three under the number three, and so on. This will teach your child to compare what is less and what is more. You can also ask them: “Is one less than two? If I have two lego bricks, do I have more than one?” Don’t be too bothered with right or wrong answers (you can model to them what is right), the point is to just get them familiar with comparisons.

Hello guys! (sit down 1 minute)

The sun has risen for a long time,

Looked into our window,

Urging us to the lesson -

Zanimatika now.

Direct and reverse counting. (1 minute)

Guys, let's count to 20 and back. (we count with children from 0 to 20, pointing to the numbers on the board with a pointer).

And now that you have remembered the order of the numbers on the number line, take the cards and get ready for our warm-up. (lay out the cards on the tables from 0 to 9).

(While the children are opening the cards, you can mark them).

Math warm-up. (2-3 minutes).

(the teacher asks questions, the children show the answer with a card).

Show number 2, 5, 8…

Show the number that comes before 4, 7.

Show the number after 8, 6.

Show neighbors of number 3 (answers 2 and 4), neighbors of number 6 (answers 5 and 7).

Well done guys! Let's remove the cards. nine0003

(To make it faster I start the countdown: from 10 to 0)

Checking homework (1 minute)

Guys, tell me what did you learn at the last lesson??? (number 1)

Do you also have homework? Show how you tried, open notebooks (we put down a seal).

Well done, you did a great job at home..

Card work: (3 minutes)

And now we will get to know each other, and someone will repeat and practice writing the number 2 beautifully. Look at how this number is written: (write the number two on the board, saying “from top to bottom”). nine0003

I will give you cards now, you find the largest number two, and color it.

Look, you have a number line on your card from 1 to 10. Let's circle the number two. Color in the cells with numbers - the neighbors of the number two. (number 1 and number 3).

Guys, find the circles and fill in the first one with any color. How many more circles do you need to fill in to make two? (One) . Okay, let's paint the second one. So 1+1=2. (Write an example on the board.)

In order for us to get beautiful twos, let's circle the figures in the cells, as well as the shovels and buckets. (any color). nine0003

Warm-up (any warm-up 1-2 minutes)

We write the number 2 (5-7 minutes)

Well done guys! Have a rest? Let's see again how to write the number two correctly (we show on the board and say a rhyme).

Guys, we have some time, let's write down all the deuces in your cards, whoever has three lines will earn a sticker. Who will be the first?

We look at who works, how we help, we see that everyone works. Attach stickers. nine0003

Talking about homework (on the back of the card) (2 minutes)

At home, you will need to find all the cells where the number two is written correctly!

Find the correct number, fill in the box. When you find everything you will get some kind of drawing.

3. Final reflection. (before the call)

Where do we see the number 2? (Number, on the clock, the second month of February, the second day of the week?)

Raise two hands, two fingers. nine0003
