Use the counting worksheets and lessons below to introduce numbers and the counting concepts that go along with them.
In this unit, we will cover a variety of topics that include number order, place value, and skip counting, to name a few.
Be sure to check out the free printable flashcards that I've created as well. They are an excellent resource for learning numbers, coins, and place value, plus they can be a fun activity to do with your child.
All of the practice sheets have been divided up into the lessons below.
Each lesson will have a few different worksheets that cover the material with varying degrees of difficulty. If your child is having problems working on one particular worksheet, try another.
I usually post the easier ones first and then advance to more difficult problems. The most important thing is that you work at your child's level.
Below, I'll go into more detail of the lessons so you'll know exactly what is covered in each one.

Here's a brief intro to some of the topics you'll find above:
Skip Counting is an important first step in learning how to add numbers. It's also crucial to understanding basic multiplication. These lessons will teach your child how to count by multiples of all the numbers from 2 to 10.
Counting money is a hard concept to grasp. Children usually associate size (big/small) with worth. That's not true of money. Dimes are smaller then nickels and pennies, but they are worth more. You might have four pennies which is more than one nickel, but the nickel is worth more. Very Confusing!!! Our worksheets present this topic in simple to understand steps.
Our 'Greater Than Less Than' worksheets should be used along with the lessons on place value which teach the difference between hundreds, tens, ones, and more.
There are also fun activity sheets like Connect the Dot puzzles, Count 'n Color sheets, and matching activities. I recently uploaded a photo tutorial of the poster we made for our daughter's 100th Day of School celebration. The goldfish counting game is a fun little activity that teaches your child how to count. It's a great way to learn...and have a snack!
I've also included a link to some counting games that you might be interested in.
