You can write numbers. Pay attention to the order when you write numbers that are 10 or more.
To better understand writing numbers up to 20…
LET’S BREAK IT DOWN!
Count bunnies from zero to five.
There are zero bunnies: 0. Zero means you don’t have any. Here is one bunny: 1. Here are two bunnies: 2. Here are three bunnies: 3. Here are four bunnies: 4. Here are five bunnies: 5.
Count dinosaurs from six to ten.
There are six dinosaurs: 6. There are seven dinosaurs: 7. There are eight dinosaurs: 8. There are nine dinosaurs: 9. There are ten dinosaurs: 10.
Count eleven robots.
There are eleven robots. To write eleven, write a 1 and then a 1 next to it: 11. 11 is the same as 1 ten and 1 one. The first number represents how many tens you have. The second number represents how many ones you have.
Count more robots.
There are more robots. To write twelve, write a 1 and then a 2: 12. This is 1 ten and 2 ones. To write thirteen, write a 1 and then a 3: 13. This is 1 ten and 3 ones. Keep going. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. To write twenty, write 20. This is 2 tens and 0 ones.
There are fifteen balloons. Fifteen is 1 ten and then 5 ones, so write a 1 and then a 5: 15.
