Number sense, or the basics of learning about numbers, is the first vital math skill a child must develop.It helps children understand both how our number system works, and how numbers relate to each other. Children who develop number sense have a range of mathematical strategies at their disposal. They know when to use them and how to adapt them to meet different situations. Teaching correct number formation is as critical as learning to read or learning number bonds. Children cannot do maths without this critical foundation in place. It is our responsibility to ensure we make the time and provide the opportunity for our children to master this skill of number formation. Number formation is the direction the pencil follows when a child writes a number. The quality of written numbers is very important. Number formation is established as the neural pathways are used over and over again, and a “motor map” or set of instructions on how to form them is laid down in the brain. This is achieved through repetition.
