Preschool Counting

Use these preschool counting worksheets to teach your child (or classroom) the numbers from one to twenty.

The numbers are taught through different activities like 'Seek N Find' puzzles, missing numbers, and 'Before and After' tasks that children love.

Let's get started.

How To Use These Practice Sheets

In the first paper, students need to fill in the missing numbers.  Then on the large box of numbers below, they should color in the numbers they have filled in.  This will reveal a hidden picture (a number).

The second sheet is similar to the first.  Students should fill in the missing numbers (which is most of them) and then search for the numbers hidden in the picture below.  There are six numbers to find.

The third sheet gives the children a number.  The student must then fill in the number that comes before and after the given number.  Below that is a short Spot The Difference activity--the difference is the hidden numbers.  Have the kids circle the numbers.

The final sheet features a snail and a turtle with numbers on their shell.  Have the children fill in the missing numbers.  Children may need help following the pattern on the turtle's shell as it serpentines from bottom to top.
