Information for Teachers

  • Numbers in words are used in language.


  • In everyday life we read or write numbers in words while writing cheese, amount written in text or on currency notes, etc.
  • Reinforce numbers in words from one to twenty and then in tens i.e. fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety and hundred.
  • The remaining number spellings can be formed by putting these words together e.g. fifty one, fifty two, etc.
  • While teaching the lesson, the teacher should also consult the textbook where it is required.

  • Ask them to write the currency in words on the board. all students then read the words.


Activity 1

  • Count and tell the bags in the class.
  • Write these numbers in words on the board. Also write the number digits against each, e.g. 31-thirty one, 22- twenty two, etc.
  • Have flashcards of the number digits ready with the spellings i.e. one to nineteen and also of the tens i.e. twenty, thirty, forty, fifty up to ninety.
  • Display or write these numbers on the board.
  • Explain the spellings and highlight similar spellings patterns, e.g. fifty, sixty, seventy or how spellings change four=twenty, five=fifty.
  • Place flashcards on the table.
  • Ask a student to come up with two cards.
  • Ask him/her what numbers they can form, e. g., the student chooses five and one it will form fifty one and fifteen.
  • Repeat this for a few numbers till the students get familiar with the spellings.

Activity 2

  • Tell the students that they will play a game in groups of 4/6 students each.
  • Make groups, give names as group A, B, C, D, etc. draw 4-5 columns on the board according to the number of the groups and write group names on top of the columns. Give one ‘en’ to each group. (A gets 60s, B gets 70s and so on)


  • Tell the students that students from every group will come one by one and write the numbers starting from the ten that they have one the writing board. If the spellings are correct the group will get one point. In this way call all the students from every group.
  • The group with the maximum correct words will be the winner of the game.

Ask the students to open their notebooks and get ready for the dictation of numbers. Dictate the following numbers;


  • 37, 43, 69, 54, 7, 88, 91, 82, 98, 54
