Do any of you have a good way that I can help my daughter remember that six points up and nine points down? She gets frustrated. Thanks.

  • I think if you give her a number on one side of a flash card and corresponding dots on the back (you can use stickers too and let her pick them out and put them on). This is what we used. I used paper plates and put the numbers on them from 0-10 and then I let her put the proper number of stickers on them. She had fun and we played with them regularly for about a year. She got it pretty quickly b/c she could see the number and count the stickers.

  • have you gotten her the number tracer books yet?
    my youngest told this to me, 9 looks like it has a mouth and wants to gobble up the other letters. my oldest used to put eyes in the center and teeth on the hook. with the 6 she made it look like a lantern fish. colored the tip of the hook to make it 'glow'

  • Hold your finger up and say "Wait a minute. We're not to nine yet."

  • You could draw bubble numbers on cardboard and make faces for them, name them 6 and 9, cut them out and let her play with them.

    If that makes any sense.
