We’re in for a treat to have Anna from The Measured Mom here today! I got to know Anna over a year ago and have always been so impressed with her blog. She has hundreds of free printables on her blog! She is an awesome resource for parents and teachers. Thank you Anna for being here today!!
A few months ago, my two-year-old was playing hide and seek with his older siblings. I heard him call from the closet, “1, 2, 4, 9, 7, here I come!” Then today, as he sat on my lap, I heard him count to ten for the first time! When kids can count by rote, it’s time to help them make numbers meaningful by teaching them to count real objects. Counting groups of objects past two can be difficult for toddlers and young preschoolers. Thankfully, there are so many fun ways to learn! Today I’m sharing a round up of free counting printables for preschoolers. Have fun!
Have your child count goldfish crackers and put them in the goldfish bowls on this fun printable.
Put a number on the side of the truck and have your child fill the back of the dump truck!
