Trace and Count Number Pencils

No. 2 pencils are here along with some friends! They've come to help pre-k and kindergarten kids with number recognition, handwriting and counting skills! Kids will identify the numeral shown on each pencil card, trace the dotted numbers several times and then use a dot marker to dot that many circles on each card.

FREE printable Pencil themed activity for kids to practice number sense and handwriting skills. Perfect for pre-k and kindergarten kids to identify numbers, trace them and use dot markers for the quantity.


Print as many cards as you need for the number of students in your class – you could alternatively laminate these for re-use. After you’ve done this, you could give the kids a set of number cards you’re working on with some bingo daubers and you’re set to go!

Pencil Number Trace, Count and Dab


Use this activity to help pre-k and kindergarten kids with number recognition, handwriting and fine motor skills. Show the students the numeral on each ‘pencil’ and have them identify it. Then, instruct them to trace each number three times, and then dab that many dots corresponding to the quantity.



You can alternatively use playdough or pom poms instead of dot markers.

This activity includes numbers up to 12. It can be perfect for a back to school theme, but is also great for any time of the year!

Cupcakes Letter Sounds Sorting

This engaging beginning sounds cupcake matching activity will get EVERY student in class motivated to learn their sounds and letters. I find that my ESL / ELL students enjoy these kinds of hands-on activities. It’s great practice for them. There are two beginning sounds images for each letter of the alphabet along with a main full page mat.

FREE printable Cupcake theme ABC activity for kids to practice letter sounds! Sure to be a hit with pre-k and kindergarten kids any time of the year.


Print as many mats as you need for each group of students working on this. Laminate both the cards and the main mat. Cut the cards apart along with the mat. They will get the hang of this game fast!

Cupcake Stand Beginning Sounds Match


I like having two laminated mats and cards for each group of 7 or 8 students. ESL students will need more time in general to look and identify the letter before they can begin to look for the matching beginning sound picture (I find this eliminates frustration for all students working on this activity).

The mat and matching pieces are in colour. You can print these in greyscale or black and white. Although, you only have one mat and I’ve designed these to save paper and color by creating alphabet cards which can be placed on the sorting mat (interchangeable). Kids can work on each letter at a time, or you could print two mats and have them sort between two letters at a time.




The beginning sound pictures on the cupcakes are easy to identify, I’ve included a key to help with ESL kids. The students should be identifying the beginning sounds each picture makes to identify the letter associated with it and sort it into the stand. After they’ve completed this activity, you could get the students to place the alphabet cards in order from A-Z.

Catching Tadpoles Alphabet Sorting

A perfect accessory to our Counting Tadpoles activity, kids will love this alphabet sorting activity with a tadpole theme! You can also create a sensory experience by placing the tadpole cards into a sensory bin with some coloured rice. Students will look for the tadpole alphabet cards, identify the letter and then place the tadpole into the matching jar.

FREE printable ABC sorting and matching activity perfect for preschool and kindergarten kids. Can be used for a science unit learning about tadpoles, or simply for a fun alphabet practice.

To prepare:

Print and laminate all the cards. You should laminate both the jar cards as well as the tadpole alphabet cards. Cut up the tadpole cards and place them in a sensory bin with colored rice or other dry material that mimics "water".



Catching Tadpoles – Alphabet Sort


These mats are so much fun for preschoolers and kindergarten kids alike. You could totally differentiate these alphabet mats depending on the level of the students in your group. The kids will identify the letters on the jars, then pick one ‘tadpole alphabet card’ out randomly. They will identify the letter name and then look for the matching jar. You could also choose to work on a set of four letters at a time or on the whole set depending on the level in your group.

I’ve also included a set of black and white options which you could choose to use as a booklet as your kids cut and paste these into the jar. Print two pages on one to create mini take-home booklets.

You could also choose the letters you are working on and focus on a particular set rather than the whole set at once. The kids will love doing this! If you would like these mats larger, print the mats on A3 poster paper.

Fall-themed Spot the Difference

Fall is here! Fall themed learning activities are SO fun, just like these Fall Spot the Difference scarecrow and owl pictures!


FREE printable Find the Difference pictures with a Fall theme including scarecrows and owls. Great for visual discrimination practice for young kids to enhance literacy and math skills. Fun fall activity that kids will love!


Simply print and laminate, or use a dry-erase pocket like we did, and you have a fun activity for your young kiddos at home, in class or even on-the-go while traveling!

Look if you can spot 8 differences, comparing the two scarecrow pictures, or owl pictures. Some differences are easy to spot, others might be harder. Draw circles around the differences to help keep count. Look for differences in color, shape, orientation etc.





Educational benefits of Spot the Difference activities:


Spot the Difference activities mainly develops visual perception. To simply explain it: Visual perception is how the eye observes and the brain interprets what is seen. Visual perception is an important skill to have when a child starts reading, writing and doing math. He/she needs to see the difference between various letters/numbers. A child that has poor visual perception skills will get confused with letters that look the same, for example "d", "b" or numbers "6" or "9". Doing "spot the difference" activities helps train the eye to see small differences in print, whether it is a picture or letters/numbers.

Spot the differences in these cute scarecrow and owl pictures and develop the important visual perception skill in a fun way this Fall!

School Bus Color Sorting

This school bus color sorting activity is great fun for toddlers and preschoolers when it is "Back to School" time. Whether you do "tot school" at home or sending your preschooler to school for the first time, they can start to identify with other children on a school bus, off to go learning too!


Pin Me!
FREE printable Back to School themed color sorting and matching activity for toddlers, featuring kids getting on different colored school buses. Fun for the beginning of school or for a transportation theme. Toddlers and preschoolers will love this activity!

Prepping:
Simply print, laminate and cut the free set of school bus colors printables. 


PS. There are only 2 kids per color, but you can print extra pages if you want to fill the bus. Ready to learn!

How to use the School Bus Color printables:

Identify the color on the bus and look for the children with the corresponding color clothes. Place them on the bus. Preschoolers can also "read" the color word in the sentence - incidental reading at its best! Younger children might need assistance the first time they play, but it can become an independent learning activity for a class center. With young children you might want to start with only two colors at a time and work your way up to mixing all of the colors as they progress.



For more Toddler printables, check out our Toddler Learning Club!

Not only does a child practice visual discrimination by sorting the colors and color identification (and "reading"), fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination are developing when picking up the small pictures and placing it just right. Life skills develop when a child realizes that each student has a certain bus he or she must take to get home. All of these important skills are being developed through one simple but fun activity!

Have fun learning about colors with our friends and their school bus colors!

While you don't have to laminate the pages in this pack, it will make them sturdier and help them stand up to busy little hands. If you prefer not to laminate your mats, you could just slip the ten-frame and recording pages into a write and wipe pocket. Kids can write on the recording page with dry erase markers so the page can be used repeatedly. 



To use this activity, have preschoolers choose a number card and identify the number on it. Then, they'll use counters or gems to build the number in the counting frames.

If you'd like, kids can make playdough balls to fill the frames. Then, have them recount the balls and "smash" them as they go. This is a great way to work on building fine motor skills as they roll the balls and then mash them down.

After your child or student has filled in the counting frames, have them find and trace the same number on the recording page.

You could also use this with counters or mini erasers. They will work really well! 



Another activity included in this set is a "Spin & Cover" game to practice number recognition and subitizing to 5 with dice. Kids will spin the spinner and then place a counter on the corresponding number on the mat.

Goldfish Counting Cards

Is your child learning to count objects and recognize numbers up to ten? Are you perhaps learning with an ocean theme? If yes, then this fun fish bowl counting activity is just for you!

FREE printable counting cards featuring fish bowls designed to be used with Goldfish crackers. Great summer or fish themed activity for toddlers and preschoolers!

Learning to count and recognizing numbers are two of the many skills young children learn from a young age. They learn through games, nursery rhymes and activities like these counting cards. The key is to make the learning process fun, and what can be more fun than to have a snack with Goldfish crackers after you practiced your counting skills?


Preparation:

Provide edible Goldfish crackers. Or if you'd rather this activity not to include eating (perhaps it is a group/class activity), you can use mini erasers or buttons shaped like fish. Or simply make fish counters from bottle tops or paper clips. Print and laminate the free printable counting cards to make them re-usable. 





Instructions:

Pick a fish bowl counting card and see if you know the number. Place that number of fish "in" the fish bowl. Fill all the bowls with fish!

Extension of the activity: Ask children questions to develop mathematical vocabulary and concepts. For instance: Which bowl has the most fish? Which bowl has the least fish? If we want the bowls to have the same number of fish, how many do we need to add/take away?

Make learning numbers and counting fun for your young kiddos with fish bowl counting cards and Goldfish crackers!

Ice Cream Number Mats

Looking for a fun way to reinforce counting and number recognition? Preschool and kindergarten kids will love these Number play dough learning mats with an ice cream theme! These multi-sensory mats will have kids tracing the number digit, counting the number of scoops on the ten frame on the mats and then placing the number of scoops using large pom poms or playdough on the cone. An added bonus, these mats include a black and white version which you could easily print off and use with coloring crayons – win, win!

FREE printable Summer themed number and counting mats featuring ice cream! Preschool and kindergarten kids will love to practice tracing numbers and creating ice cream scoops to match the quantity!

To prepare:


Print as many sets of these mats as you need. Laminate the mats or use dry erase pocket inserts for easy prep! Be sure that you have the play dough and dry erase markers ready at the table for the kids to use.

Numbers to Ten Play Dough Mats

Use these mats to help kids develop number sense and strengthen their counting skills. These mats can be used in a number of ways and can also be differentiated. Have the kids work on their fine motor skills by using pom poms or playdough to build ice cream scoops on the mats. They will also trace the number digit and then cover the ten-frames with counters or even dough to show the number on each mat.


This game can also be played as a group, or as a competitive game played between groups. Give each group the same mat and have the kids build their scoops to match the corresponding numbers. After they’re done, check their mats and the group with the mat that is correctly filled wins!
