Number Activities for Preschoolers
One simple way to introduce numbers is to have your child identify objects around the house and count them out loud. You can also make it into a game by hiding a certain number of objects and seeing if they can find them all.
Another activity is to cut out large numbers from construction paper and have your child match them up with the corresponding number of stickers.
As they start to get more comfortable with numbers, you can move on to more challenging tasks, such as having them identify numbers in sequence or count backwards from 10.
By engaging in these kinds of activities, preschoolers will begin to develop essential math skills that will serve as a foundation for future success.
Preschool Number Worksheets
Preschool is a time for exploring the world and learning new things. It’s also a great time to start introducing basic concepts in math.
Preschool number worksheets are a fun and easy way to help your child develop important math skills. These worksheets can be used to introduce new concepts or review what your child has already learned. Plus, they’re just plain fun!
Preparing the Worksheets
These worksheets are print-and-go making them simple to prepare for your preschoolers. Just print them out, provide your preschoolers with crayons and/or pencils, and you’re all set.
If you’d like to make the worksheets reusable, you can slip them in a dry erase pocket or laminate them. Have kids complete the worksheets with dry erase markers.
When complete, wipe the pages clean and use them over and over again.
Completing the Activity
Each page is formatted the same way so once your child is familiar with the layout, they can complete them on their own.
First, children will identify the number in the top left corner and trace it using the directional arrows.
Next, have your kids notice the number word and have them spell it aloud. This helps them become familiar with how letters make words and words have meaning.
Next, have your child color the same number of fish in the fish bowl. This is a great way to work on one-to-one correspondence and counting to ten.
Finally, have your child trace three rows of that number before trying to write the number on their own.
