Teaching numbers to preschoolers and kindergartners is more involved than just reciting numbers in order. A child might know how to count to 100, but if they do not have number recognition abilities or be able to “know” a number in more ways than one, there is still work to be done! *More on this below!*
This is why I created the second addition to my All About Numbers printable worksheets! Teaching numbers should be a hands-on activity with your preschoolers and kindergartners, but these worksheets make a great addition to their studies.
So why the update? What exactly did I change?
First, I wanted to pack more learning into these pages. I tried to get as many preschool math concepts as possible for each number. I removed the bottom colored portion that took up too much space!
Second, They are entirely black and white! I am all about saving money on ink costs – but without losing the design in my worksheets.
Teaching Numbers – The Details
I love these pages, as I feel like they pack a punch for both preschoolers and kindergarten aged kids. Each number 1 – 10 is the same format. Each page has:
- The number at the top – both in number format and written out in text.
- Find and color the numbers
- Color the ten frame
- Trace the number, again presented in both number and written format
- Tally the number
- Highlight the written number
- Add 1 and Subtract 1
- Circle the number on the number line
- Color the dominos
The highlights from this packet are that your preschoolers and kindergartners will be kept busy learning and growing in their number knowledge – while also working on Number Recognition, Addition, Subtraction, Ten frames, and Tally Practice. In addition to practicing their handwriting, coloring, and counting!

Earlier when I was talking about number recognition, I said that a child needs to recognize their numbers in multiple ways. What exactly does that mean?
Well, children can see the number 7 and know right away what it is. But if they see seven blocks colored out of ten, will they be able to recognize it? What if the number 7 was on a number line – would they know right where to find it, or would they have to search?
These skills are all taught and begin becoming age-appropriate for preschoolers, and certainly in kindergarten. Some of these skills are more challenging than others (Like the add one and subtract 1), but with practice, hands-on activities your kids will begin to fall in love with math!
