What numbers should my preschooler know?
Most 3-4 year olds should be able to count to 10 and they may be able to count higher. Most schools expect children to understand numbers up to 20 and write numbers up to 10 by the time they enter kindergarten. It is normal and natural for them to mix up the teen numbers for a while. The 1-5 and 1-10 sets of pirate fill in the numbers pages are perfect for preschoolers.
What numbers do kindergarteners know?
Standards vary, but in general kindergarteners are expected to write numbers up to 20 and count/understand numbers up to 100 by the end of the school year. The sets of 1-15 and 1-20 fill in the blank numbers are great for kindergarteners.
How to print and use missing number worksheets
Missing number worksheets are like a more casual, fun version of number charts. You can simply print the pages off and hand them over to your little learner, but here are a few tips to help you make the most of your time and ensure your child has a great learning experience.
How to make worksheets reusable
Making pages reusable saves you time and paper because you can print once and have your child use the same page multiple times. You can even stash the page away for use another year with a different child.
Laminating requires the most time and effort, but laminated pages are the most durable. If you have a young child at home, a laminator quickly pays for itself compared to the cost of laminating pages at an office supply store. I use my inexpensive at home laminator frequently.
- Laminating Brand
- Laminates items up to 9 inches wide
- Two heated rollers create high quality professional, bubble and wrinkle-free results
Dry erase pockets are basically super strength page protectors. They’re large, durable, and popular in preschool classrooms.
Instead of dry erase pockets, I usually use “secure” heavy duty page protectors. They’re thicker than normal page protectors and have a flap to help keep the page inside. It’s easy to keep pages organized when you can put them in a three ring binder!
- Keep contents secure in the protective sleeve with convenient top flap; perfect for holding nonstandard size papers and important items
- Get a crisp, clear view of the contents of your documents with diamond clear page protectors featuring a polished finish for high clarity
- Ensure your documents stay protected with long-lasting super heavyweight sheet protectors for all of your frequently referenced items
Whether you laminate or use a page protector, it’s easy for your child to use these pages again and again. You can use a dry erase marker or a Stabilo Woody 3-in-1 colored pencil. We love our Woody pencils and even use them for reusable coloring pages! Stop by this post with free printable dinosaur coloring pages to see Stabilo Woody pencils in action. They color really well on laminated pages and they don’t have ink to stain or stink.
- XXL lead applies as much pigment as 8 colored pencils at once
- Large width ideal for smaller hands
