Numbers in English for Kids

Numbers in English for Kids

“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!
