Knowing the names of numbers and understanding what they mean is an important math skill learned in preschool. Preschoolers should have plenty of practice counting, identifying numbers, and one-to-one correspondence. Today, I’m sharing our activity sheets for numbers 0-10 and explaining how we use them.
When I introduce a number sheet to my child, I first have them identify the number. Then we put counters (like shapes, gems, or stickers) in the circles and count them.
Next, we practice writing the number. My 3 year old traces the number with his finger. My 5 year old uses a marker to write the number. I do recommend laminating the activity sheets and using dry erase marker on them so you can use them again.
I have my child show me where the number is on the number line. We also play a game where I have him find another number and then ask him how many numbers it is away from the main number. For example, I’ll say “Find the 2. How many numbers does it take to get to 5? You’re right, it is 3!”
I love these activity sheets for practice with number identification, writing numbers, counting, one-to-one correspondence, and number value.
