Counting Worksheets, Flashcards, and Manipulatives

Counting gets easier with practice. Kids practice counting naturally. They love to keep track of the number of things.The trick is to help them memorize the numbers in order. Repeat the 0-9 sequence often even if you're using 10-19, etc.

  • Actually, if you simply count out loud frequently with your kids, most of them will learn to count easily with simple repetition.
  • Count cups of flour in a recipe together.
  • Count the birds on the sidewalk.
  • Count the crayons in the box.

Children love to sing along with counting songs. So choose your favorite counting songs to use with these worksheets.

2B. Kitten Counting Numbers Flash Cards For Preschool

Looking for a preschool or kindergarten activity?

Have your children color these kitten flash cards before they cut them. Coach as they carefully count the kittens one at a time.

I like to teach them to put their fingers on each kitten, yet leaving a pencil mark will be much better for the higher numbers and remembering which kittens were already counted. 

Even better, have them color the kitties using these like counting worksheets.

Ooops! Each of the following images link to one page, but the last icon below has the full set. To print only the last page, you'll have to select the last page. Otherwise, print the whole set at once from the last kitten image below.

These puppies can be used as counting worksheets, too.

Print them on card stock to make flash cards or use paper for coloring pages.

A planner helps you plan which printables to use and when. At-A-Glance has my favorite academic planner for making lesson plans. Each day is like a list of things to do. Not finished today? Draw an arrow to tomorrow. 

Also, I love that it covers more than a year and I can see the whole week "at a glance". It makes a great gift, too. You can buy it at any time of the year at Amazon.

  • Use these for skip counting which is the beginning of multiplication.
  • Use the ones, tens, and hundred block to teach base ten Math.

Counting is easiest when we have Math manipulatives.

There has to be something to count before counting makes sense. It is easier when you move to skip counting, use blocks or sets that show the units in groups.

Note: You might have to tell some children to remove the white instead of cut out the blocks.

Some children will make unit blocks out of all of the sheets, especially if they cut the first worksheet before doing the others - which is pretty usual. 

This is not a good job for super little children, so you might want to cut these for your kids. My favorite short cut is to use a mini paper cutter.

5. Printable Christmas Counting Worksheets

These printable 12 Days Of Christmas worksheets can be assigned one day at a time through the Christmas Season and bound as a Christmas coloring book. This is a lovely idea for teaching counting if you also teach the song. 

Counting is a skill that we learn to do better and better through the first few years of school.

In Preschool we learn to count to ten.

In Kindergarten we learn to count to twenty or one hundred and we begin writing the numerals.

In First and Second Grade we learn addition which is fast counting, subtraction which undoes addition, and skip counting which prepares us for the idea of multiplication.

In Third and Fourth Grade multiplication makes counting even faster and division makes decimals and fractions.
