Number Recognition Worksheets
I know I’ve mentioned before that one of my boys is disabled. I remember during one of his Preschool IEP Meetings, that his team mentioned number recognition and quantity recognition. Sure, many kids can recite numbers 1-10 or even higher, but being able to visualize what “two of something is” or what “four of something is” is another skill.
That same day, my younger child had a baby blanket in each hand. “Look Mommy! Two blankies!” he exclaimed. Ouch, it hurt. My toddler was exhibiting a skill that I had just been told his older brother lacked.
Since then, we’ve worked on it of course. Number recognition and development is a beginner skill.
Most preschool TV shows, YouTube videos and songs will have kids singing and reciting the numbers 1-10.
Number 1-10 Preschool or Kindergarten
Being able to recognize the numbers 1-10 is the next step.
These worksheets designed for preschoolers or kindergarten will help with this task. I always like to engage multiple senses whenever we can. That would include singing, seeing, touching, tracing and more.
The skill set that a child has will depend upon how much exposure they have had to these skills and at what age.
Number Tracing 1-10
You could print and laminate these worksheets for a lasting center activity. The tracing could be done with a finger or with a wax crayon and wiped clean when you’re done.
Or, if a parent asks for something to do at home to reinforce learning, these PDFs are easy to send home.
Being able to visualize what 2 or what 7 is of something is an essential skill. That’s why I love the apples and the ladybugs on these preschool number worksheets. You could even bring in 10 apples to add more multisensory learning to the activity.
This is also a great activity for those who are beginning kindergarten. There is one free printable worksheet for each number 1 through 10. Each worksheet has the following activities:
- Trace it
- count it
- color it
- write it
- spell it
- say it
- visualize it
