How to Use these Free Color by Number Worksheets:
Prepping for this kindergarten counting activity is super simple!
First print the printable color by number pages! You can use white computer paper, or white card stock if you are looking for something a little more durable.
After the worksheets are printed you have two options!
Option 1: Give your little learner the worksheets along with a coloring utensil of their choice (crayons, colored pencils, or markers) and let them get to work!
Option 2: Slip the worksheets into a clear plastic sleeve and use colored dry erase markers for the activity! Once your little learner is finished, the worksheets can be wiped clean and are ready for next time!
How To Use The Color By Number Worksheets For Kindergarten:
You can use this activity in whatever way best works for your child! Here is how I use them with my daughter!
The first thing I have my daughter do is trace the number.
Next, I ask her to color the correct number of objects in the top array. For instance, on the 3 page, I show her the apples and ask her to color three apples.
This provides a bit more of a challenge than a picture of the correct number of objects. These arrays require kids to focus on counting the correct number instead of just assuming that the objects shown are the right amount.
The final and most exciting part is to color the math color by number portion. I have used blue, yellow, red and green. Children will follow the number map: 1- Blue, 2- Yellow, etc. When it is all colored in correctly, the number word will be bright and bold!
Other Ways To Use This Activity:
- Assemble the completed colored pages, or uncolored pages in clear sleeves into a book and use it as a handy number guide for your child! They can reference this book when they are practicing writing their numbers in numeral and word form!
- When working on the color by number section, you can help a little learner who is having trouble by making them a key to follow. For example, if they are supposed to color the number ones red, draw a box or circle in red around the “1-red” to help give some extra guidance!
- Use the pictures in the top right corner of the worksheet to introduce addition and subtraction! Talk about how many pictures are colored in and how many are not. How many are there altogether?
- Set two or three completed worksheets out in front of your child! Use this to introduce comparing numbers. Which paper has the largest number? Can you order numbers least to greatest?
- Use the following books and tools to continue the practice of counting 0-10!
