Opportunities for counting activities are all around us. Here is a free printable that kids can use to count some common items in their homes. This is a great take-home activity, but I have included ideas for classroom use as well.
One of the easiest ways to practice counting with kids is to count objects in their world. On the playground, they can count steps on the slide. On the way home from school, they can count stop signs. At school, they can count the doors in the hallway. There are opportunities for counting activities all around us.
Counting at Home
Here is an activity that they can do at home. This is a great one-page printable that parents can use to practice counting at home with their child.
Kids can walk around their homes to find and count all of the doors, windows, tables, beds, mirrors and sinks. This is a great page to send home when parents are asking for activity ideas. You can also use it as a holiday or summer break activity.
Counting at School
If you want to use this math printable for a classroom activity, you can ask kids to count the items in a doll house or in a picture book. They can also use it as a pre-planning worksheet as they prepare to build a house from building bricks or blocks. Encourage kids to create their own counting worksheets or little books to count objects around school.
