    Any tips on teaching how to identify a 6 and a 9. My student gets confused only when he has to identify the numbers. It is strange because when asked to draw a 6 or 9 he does it no problem...

    Maybe have him write the number then identify it. If he sees it, then writes it, will he be able to tell you the name?

    6 stands on its head.
    9 stands on its feet.

    6 is smaller then 9, so the circle is on the bottom - little like a baby. Then when the baby is 9 year old then the circle (head) is taller :)

    Yep, this is exactly how I explain it to my pre K children. 6 is the baby so he can't stand. When he is bigger like 9 he/she will walk. Do you walk on your seat or your feet? Well if it is on the seat it is small, baby 6 and if it is on the feet it is big, walking 9!
