How to say Number in Spanish
Before we dive right into the Spanish numbers 1-30, let’s first learn how to say “number” in Spanish.
The word number in Spanish is número. Yay, a cognate!
When speaking about numbers, you will simply use número before every number and it’s as easy as that!
Número uno, número dos, número tres. You get the gist.
Spanish Numbers 1-30
Now that we know how to say número, let’s take a glance at the Spanish numbers 1-30 and a few rules.
Below are the Spanish numbers 1-30:
Spanish numbers are not difficult to learn. The numbers in Spanish only have a few rules which I will mention below. With a little practice and memorization, your child will be learning the Spanish numbers 1-30 in no time.
Some Spanish number rules to remember
- All Spanish numbers are singular, masculine nouns, except for number one.
- “One” in Spanish is used differently than in English because it can take on one of three forms; uno, un and una. How do you know which form to use? That will depend on the noun you are describing.
If the number one comes before a masculine singular noun use un.
Un zapato, un teléfono, un barco, un carro.
If the number one comes before a feminine singular noun, use una.
Una cama, una camisa, una amiga.
You might be thinking, when do we use uno then? You only use uno when you aren’t saying the noun.
For example, if someone asks you How many dogs do you have in Spanish:
“¿Cuántos perros tienes?“
Let’s say you have one dog, so you could respond:
“Tengo un perro.”
Or you could drop the noun since it’s already implied in the question and respond:
Does that make sense? If not, I’ll leave this video below explaining número uno in Spanish in further detail.
Spanish Number Videos For Kids
A great way to learn the pronunciation of the Spanish numbers 1-30 is by watching videos.
One pronunciation rule to remember: There are different ways to pronounce the letters c and z. In Latin America, the letters c and z are pronounced like the letter S, whereas in Spain you will hear the TH sound.
Below I will link to a handful of helpful YouTube videos that will help your child or students memorize their Spanish numbers and in the meantime, nail the proper pronunciation.

More Flashcards in Spanish for kids:
Below I will list 8 ways that you can use the free printable Spanish numbers 1-30 flashcards at home or in the classroom to help your children memorize the Spanish numbers.
Ways that you can use the Spanish number flashcards:
- Play a memory game
Print out two sets of Spanish number flashcards. Cut out the cards and shuffle them up. Lay them face down on a surface. Take turns flipping over cards to find matching numbers.
Remember, there are 30 flashcards in this set. That would equal 60 total cards, which will make for a long game, great for older children.
For younger children, only use numbers 1-10, or higher, if you wish.
- Unscramble the numbers
Hand your child a range of numbers, 1-10, 1-20, or 1-30, and have them place the cards in order from lowest to highest.
For more advanced students, you could ask them to put the numbers backward or have them place the numbers in order by twos, fives, or even tens. Likewise, you could have them separate the Spanish numbers by evens or odds (pares y impares.)
- Number scavenger hunt
Hide a range of numbers throughout your house, or classroom. Have your child take a basket, or bag, and go around the room collecting different numbers.
Once they have collected the number, have them lay the numbers out and try to find which numbers they are missing. If numbers are missing, have them continue the search.
If you are doing this in a class setting, have your students go around and collect numbers. Then come back to the seats and have your children say what numbers they found, in Spanish, of course.
- Salt writing
A salt writing tray is great prewriting practice for young kids.
Pour some salt (or sand, sugar, flour, etc.) into a small tray. Shuffle the number flashcards and put them face down. Have your child flip over a card and write the number in the sand using their pointer finger.
To erase the number, gently shake the tray. Then, draw the last number.
- Car call-outs
Keep a set of Spanish number flashcards in the car. On your next car ride or road trip, draw from a card at random and see if your child can find that number on a sign or license plate.
- Musical numbers
This is a great activity to learn the numbers in your classroom.
Place the numbers in a circle around the room.
Put on a song and have your children walk in a circle around the numbers. When the music stops, have your children find a number to stand on. Go around the room and ask the children what number they are standing on.
Once they all repeat which number, remove a number and see who is the last student standing.
- Graphing with objects
Give your child a handful of cards. With loose parts such as coins or Legos, challenge your child to place the correct number of objects above the card.
