Printable Number Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten
With over 70 pages of engaging, low-prep resources, this printable number activity pack is a win for both teachers and students!
And with multiple versions provided for many of the activities, this pack provides lots of opportunities for differentiation. We even included teacher instructions and black and white copies for each activity!
Check out a few of our favorite activities in this number pack below…
Number Sorting Mats
Sort by color, straight/curved sides, or holes/no holes with these Number Sorting Mats. Choose the mat that will work best with the number manipulatives you have.
The color mat is editable so you can type in the colors that you would like your students to work on! To play, kids choose a number and place it in the box with the corresponding color word.
Magical Domino Dots
This Magical Domino Dots activity is an easy-prep way to work on counting skills. Simply print the domino mat, grab some numbers, and you’ll be ready for counting fun any time of the year!
Students start by counting the number of dots on the dominos. Then they place a number manipulative on top of each box to show the total number.
Number Grab and Graph
Use this Number Grab and Graph as an independent activity or turn it into a super fun partner game! Students can race to see who reaches the top of their graph first.
If adding this activity to your math centers, put 5 number manipulatives in a cup. The kids will write the 5 numbers across the bottom of the graph. Then they can pull out a manipulative and color the box above the number on the graph.
Missing Number Mats
The Missing Number Mats are perfect for working on counting to 10 and 20 (both versions included!). Choose which version works best for your students or use different mats for each kid based on their level.
To play, students simply use number manipulatives to fill in the missing numbers on the mat.
Number recognition and number writing are important skills that we practice all year long. This Number Hunt activity is an interactive way to practice these skills! Recording sheets for
numbers 1 to 10 and numbers 1 to 20 are included.
Hide number manipulatives around the room or in a sensory bin. Choose between coloring, tracing, or writing recording sheet options. Kids can find a number and record it on the printable.
Ten Frame Flowers
This Ten Frame Flowers printable is exactly what you need to strengthen counting and subitizing skills in a super fun way. Laminate the printable for reuse and durability and your kids will have a blast working on ten frames!
For this activity, students can count or subitize the dots in the ten frames on the flowers. Then they place a number manipulative on top of each box to show the total number in the ten frame.
