## What is a fun way to teach numbers?

## How many numbers should a 5 year old know?

## How many numbers should a 4-year-old recognize?

The average 4-year-old can count up to ten, although he may not get the numbers in the right order every time. One big hang-up in going higher? Those pesky numbers like 11 and 20. The irregularity of their names doesn’t make much sense to a preschooler.
