# Preschool and KindergartenCounting and Number Recognition Worksheets

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Math Basics:  Counting and number recognition worksheets are among the first math worksheets that preschool and kindergarten children will practice with.  Number recognition is a building block to success in math.  As preschool and kindergarten children start to recognize their numbers, it is natural for them to begin counting objects.

## Age Rating

All children develop as individuals.  Parents and caregivers should use the age ratings below as a general guideline, taking the abilities, temperament and interests of their children into account.

• Ages 4-5  Can complete without assistance.
• Age 3     Can complete with minimal assistance after directions are given.
• Age 2     Introduction to math concepts -- can complete with adult assistance.

## Introduction

Comparison activities develop an understanding of mathematical order.  Pattern recognition activities require children to observe and continue patterns preparing them for learning to recognize numbers.  Number recognition and counting activities prepare preschoolers for grade school level addition and subtraction exercises.

If an aspect of a project is frustrating to the child, provide assistance - try to keep things fun.  Sing songs, read stories or watch shows with a similar theme as the worksheet you choose to supplement the project - again focusing on extra activities that the child enjoys to help keep them motivated.

Take breaks, when necessary.  Choose a time of day when you and the child are relaxed.  Provide rewards (verbal encouragement, gold stars on "chore chart" checklists or awards for tasks that have been mastered) and change up the rewards when needed.  Don't underestimate the "reward value" of one-on-one time with a loved grown up!  Ten minutes of "homework time" with daddy after work can become a special ritual for both father and child.
