It is important for students to name the number out loud and have a partner confirm as a way to ensure students are focused on number identification, not just tracing numerals without a connection to the number name. Students may need a number line to assist them in identifying a number name; you may also see students doing some 'sub-vocal' counting (sort of like counting under their breath) from another number to arrive at the correct number name. This is a common student strategy that should be noted when assessing a student's facility with number identification. Students should eventually be able to identify a numeral without having to count sub-vocally and may need targeted instruction to move away from this support.
