Identifying the Names 1119
with the Corresponding Numerals
Exercise 2
MATERIAL:
 Number Boards A. (Sometimes called the Seguin Boards after
the educator who first designed them.) Two slotted boards with
the numeral "10" repeated five times on one and four times on the
other. The boards are always used together, one below the other,
touching. There are two boards, because if there was only one it
would be too long to store and handle easily. Cards 1  9 of the
right size to slip into the slots of the boards.
PURPOSE:
 To learn the names 11  19 in association with the numerals
AGE:
 4 years and older
EXERCISE:
 As the child has already learned the names in association with
the quantities, he can be given all the names in association with the
numerals in one lesson. The three period lesson is used.
Period 1
 The boards are laid on the
mat. The teacher and child are next to each other, facing the
boards. The teacher has the cards 1  9. She slips "1" over
the zero of the first 10 on the board saying, "Ten and one are
eleven. This is the way we write 11." She repeats eleven
once or twice.






 The teacher slips "2" over the
zero of the second 10. She says, "Ten and two are twelve.
This is the way we write 12." She repeats the name once or twice.













 The teacher continues to make the
numerals to teach the names to 19 in this way.
Period 2
 The teacher asks the child for various numerals. For
example, "Show me 18. Show me 15." The child points to any
numeral she asks for.
Period 3
 The teacher points to various numerals and the child tells her
the names. Finally, the teacher and child name the numerals in
sequence from 11 to 19.

 The material is kept available for the child to take and use
whenever he or she likes.
