To count is one of the foundational skills that one needs to learn and master to lead a life with ease. That might seem like an exaggeration but think about it. What if you didn’t know how to count? You’d be easily fooled by that vendor who tried to return you less money or you won’t be able to tell how much money you are left with, in the first place.
Several such cases can be made for the importance of learning how to count. But perhaps the most essential reason why we learn to count is to be familiar with the number system which then gives us the foundation for mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, and other complex ones that we learn during our school and college days.
With the importance of learning how to count established, let’s move on to these exercises that are meant for preschoolers to learn how to count. Download the worksheet and test if they can count the number of fishes in the pictures given below. You’ll need to laminate the printables to ensure that you don’t have to download these more than once. Cut these out once done and ask the students to match the numbers with the picture that has the exact number of fishes. You can also assign them the task to paste the cards together as a more engaging activity.
You can use these at home if you are homeschooling your kids or at school and assign these as homework. If you are to use these in classrooms, ask the students to write their name, teacher’s name, section, and date before doing the task at hand since it would help you stay organized. Flashcards can be used in any way possible. These can also be used to introduce the kids to different types of fish. There are jellyfish, piranha, whales, and many more in the flashcards. It won’t hurt if they learn about the names of some common or exotic fishes while learning how to count. So what are you waiting for? Download the worksheet and get your preschooler ready to learn how to count!
