Here’s a fun way to teach young children their address and phone number (and brush their hair in the morning!)  Tell them you are playing Beauty Shop and that they should wait for their appointment. After a moment, call their name and when they approach, pretend to look up their name in an appointment book.  Have them recite their first name, last name, phone number and address while you check to see if they are in the book.  In the beginning, you can feed them the info but after a few days, they will know all their pertinent statistics!
