Teaching Numbers

As part of our preschool curriculum we taught numbers. Most kids know how to count before starting preschool, but do not always recognize numbers or know how to count objects. Our first year of preschool we were just familiarizing the kids with the look of the numbers. We did simple projects like the ones below. I have an old Sizzix machine, and die cut objects for them to glue on, and had them count as they glued them onto a large number. Some children struggled more than others. Usually, regardless of understanding, kids are just proud of their artwork.

The second year of preschool we did similar projects, but sometimes added worksheets as well. Finding new or different activities to do with numbers was not always easy, but honestly, the kids don't mind doing the same thing over and over again. :)

What ways do you use to teach children numbers?
