What Are Some Different Ways to Write Quantities?

Teach your child that there are several ways to write down quantities. To make things fun, decide on fun names before you start - space wanderers, spies, or secret agents. Ask: "You saw five space pirates, but you can't tell me about it using words. How can you tell me their quantity without words?" Help your child remember different ways of information transfer. Showing it on your fingers, using other subjects, or by writing it down on paper. When we write down the quantity of something on paper, we also use different methods. You can draw, write the number "5", or write the word "five". It is also possible to designate the quantity by tally marks. Draw four tally marks in a row, and the fifth crosses through the first four. One more way to count five is to make four points and use a line to unite them in a square. If we wrote down two fives (or a total of ten), what amount of objects would we designate?
