Each paper has instructions printed on it, but I thought I'd cover them a bit here as well.
They're pretty straightforward as far as what your child needs to do.
On the left are groups of objects. I created different themes for each paper so you'll find handouts for kids that love sports, animals, candy, and more.
If you have a special theme that you'd like to see, let me know and I'd be glad to create a worksheet that might get your child a bit more interested in the activity. Kids respond better to things that they like and images they are familiar with.
Back to the task at hand.
Have your child count each object in a group. On the right are numbers. Draw a line from each group to the number that matches.
For example, in the first paper, the first group shows 4 lions. Your child should draw a line to the number 4. Simple right?
Drawing lines can get messy for some kids (our youngest daughter for one). For those children still trying to master their writing skills, you can print out the last couple of papers. Your child can simply circle, mark, or 'X' out the correct number.
For more help with counting (and perhaps drawing straight lines) see the lessons below.
I've put together a list of educational resources that include links to more free work sheets, workbooks, home school curriculums, teacher resources, and learning toys.
