How to Teach Counting 

Teaching preschoolers to count at an early age is a great way to ensure your students have a strong foundation in math before elementary school. Here are some of my favorite ways to help preschoolers learn to identify numbers and practice counting:

Play with number toys like stacking blocks, counting bears, and number magnets. Preschoolers learn a lot through play, so adding numbers to their toys is an easy low-pressure way to introduce counting skills.

My second tip is to count every day. There are so many things to count! I like to encourage my preschoolers to count snacks, pencils, and stickers. We can count the stairs as we go up and down or count the squares on the sidewalk. By counting things we come in contact with each day, we’re teaching our preschoolers that numbers are everywhere and counting is a part of daily life.

Read number books together to show your preschoolers that reading and math are connected. Plus, great picture books can help preschool learners retain new information about numbers by giving them a visual representation.

Another fun way to explore numbers with preschoolers is by singing counting songs. I love singing songs like 5 Little Speckled Frogs aloud with my preschool students. Movement songs like this give us an opportunity to practice what we’ve learned and they’re a great way to get the wiggles out before table work too.

Finally, try doing counting crafts and activities together. I’ve got printable low-prep winter counting activities you can use to explore numbers with your preschool students in a way that’s fun and engaging. 

Snowflake Counting Activity

This new snowflake counting activity is one of my favorites! It’s such a creative way to incorporate math learning fun, no-prep printables for the classroom, and these cute little snowflake marshmallows or snowflake buttons I got from Amazon.

Just grab my printable winter math activity, the corresponding number cards, and small objects to use as snowflakes. In place of snowflake buttons, you could use white pom poms, cotton balls, or mini marshmallows. Alternatively, you could just use the printable snowflakes I’ve included with this winter number activity.

Whatever you decide, this printable snowflake winter counting activity will give your preschoolers an opportunity to practice counting, number recognition, one-to-one correspondence, and fine motor skills.

You can even extend the learning by having students write down the correct number on each page to build handwriting skills and get more number practice too.
