The young generation today has the boon of technology, the advantage of learning even without classrooms and the quickness at their fingertips. The age of flipping pages in a book is long gone. Children can swipe through a search engine and look through the best available information source. There is a high chance of being overwhelmed with such a high variety of information available online.

Autocorrect can be a tool which can without a doubt ease the lives of all using including children as well as adults. Considering all the advantages of this tool one of the top banes is the chance of spelling accuracy. One such example would be the Number Names which does not fall under the Phonetic rule.

Once in a classroom teacher asked a child to spell the numeric ‘1’ to which the child replied ‘wan’. Following the teacher asked the same question with numbers ‘2’ and ‘3’ to different kids and the same pattern of answers was followed by them. This shows the importance of learning the spelling of Numeric values of the number system.

Number names for kids can be bit tricky when starting with learning the numbers as the usual writing by speech sounds might not necessarily be followed with our number system. Hence it is important to guide the kids learning the number to also focus on their names and their difference in spelling each numeric value as well as number name.

Number names for kids have to be taught by watching the spelling of each number, following the rule ‘Sight Words’. They should be introduced to Number names using the sight words which becomes easier for them to grasp. This can be taught using different number name activities for kids or using worksheets with simple match or blank activities specially designed for kids.

We should keep a close eye on children if they start learning the number system using their phonic sounds or the way they are pronounced. Parents and teachers must quickly interfere in case of such observation before it becomes a habit or a norm. This would only confuse the kid even more while learning the actual spellings of numbers and naming them in the correct way. Early education is most important as that would establish the basic cornerstone for rest of the child’s career.
