See and Learn First Counting

See and Learn First Counting is designed to help parents and educators teach children the number words, numerals and counting from 1 to 10.

See and Learn First Counting is the first step in See and Learn Numbers. It is designed to teach children to say the number words, to recognize the numerals, to link quantities to numbers, to count, and to understand the concepts of cardinality and equivalence for the numbers 1 to 10. See and Learn First Counting is also designed to teach the key maths language needed at this stage of number learning.
