    “Numbers” are a fundamental topic that every child has to learn. This article will help your child learn how to say numbers in English. You can guide your toddler through counting games and fun number activities.

    Here are the English words for numbers 0-9:


    0 – Zero

    1 – One

    2 – Two

    3 – Three

    4 – Four

    5 – Five

    6 – Six

    7 – Seven

    8 – Eight

    9 – Nine

    10 – Ten

    Start with numbers 1-5, then 6-9, and then zero should be last since that number can be complicated for young kids to understand. Your child can count toys, small food like raisins, cookies, chips, or crackers, or they can draw pictures of people, animals, or simple shapes and practice counting them. First, model how to count by counting the toys, food, or pictures in English and then encourage your child to repeat.

    Cooking is a fun way to teach your child how to count. Have your child help you make food they really like that is easy to cook. You can try making sandwiches, salad, fruit salad, or pancakes and encourage your child to help count the ingredients before pouring and mixing.

    Add numbers to your child’s playtime by having them count whatever toys they’re playing with. Get flashcards, or make your own with markers and small pieces of paper. Write the numbers and have your child count objects that match the numbers. For example, if the flashcard says “1,” your child puts one toy on the flashcard. If the card says “2,” then your child puts two toys on the flashcard and so on.

    As soon as your child can count to 10 in English, they are ready to learn the next set of numbers.


    11 – Eleven

    12 – Twelve

    13 – Thirteen

    14 – Fourteen

    15 – Fifteen

    16 – Sixteen

    17 – Seventeen

    18 – Eighteen

    19 – Nineteen

    20 – Twenty

    Another fun way to teach your child numbers is with sensory play. Get some empty plastic bottles in different sizes and have your child fill the bottles up with dried beans, dried pasta, or pom pom balls. This will not only help your child learn to count but will help with their fine motor skills as well.


    20 – Twenty

    21 – Twenty-one

    22 – Twenty-two

    23 – Twenty-three

    24 – Twenty-four

    25 – Twenty-five

    26 – Twenty-six

    27 – Twenty-seven

    28 – Twenty-eight

    29 – Twenty-nine

    30 – Thirty

    40 – Forty

    50 – Fifty

    60 – Sixty

    70 – Seventy

    80 – Eighty

    90 – Ninety

    100 – One hundred

    Younger children do not need to know to count to 100 since this is a very advanced skill. The main thing is for your child to be able to count to 10 and enjoy counting in English with the different activities that we have recommended. Remember, children learn best through play so the more fun the activity, the easier it will be for them to learn something new! Enjoy!
