Learning to count aloud is one thing, but we know that counting objects with one-to-one correspondence, understanding quantity, subitizing, and matching sets to numbers is quite another! In fact, A LOT goes into counting. Kids need practice with counting to gain confidence and build a solid foundation for future math skills. Why not make that practice fun with these easy-prep, hands-on Counting Activities and Centers for Pre-K & Kindergarten?

Sort numbers to 20 on the table or in a pocket chart (they fit great) by looking at the variety of ways to make a number.

Have fun putting together number puzzles by counting, using ten frames, twenty frames, and reading numerals.
