“Can learning numbers be made fun?” Tanya asked Aaliya, the educator. And Aaliya handed over her favourite number practice bundle pack to Tanya and said, “Parents can support preschoolers and Kindergarteners in practicing and learning new math skills at home. One of the best ways to do this is through low prep activities. Today, I am sharing this fun number activity pack with you so you can make learning numbers fun at home.”
And yes Aaliya was right. Ryan loved this activity and engaged really well with it. You can also DOWNLOAD this low prep activity at the end of this post.
- Free Number practice printables
- Two-way velcro dots
- Laminating sheets or sheet protectors
- Dry erase markers
- Print out all the pages on an A4 size sheet of paper and Laminate them.
- Alternately you could also use some sheet protectors for your activity mats.
- For tracing, simply provide children with a dry erase marker and let them practice tracing numbers 1 to 20 or the numbers they know first followed by the new numbers.
- The tracing sheets can be reused multiple times as it becomes easy to wipe off the traced numbers with wet wipes or tissues
- For matching the numbers with number names and dots, you can use any number manipulatives or alternately print the answer key (pages 11 and 12). Cut the number tiles and use them for the matching game. (Tip – Two-way Velcro would be best for this)
- For matching beginning sounds, you can make use of alphabet manipulatives or alternatively use the answer key, cut them into tiles, and use it for matching.
