For young children learning about numbers is so much fun! There are endless things to count and definitely endless ways to use numbers. However, understanding that three always means three no matter what is being counted, can be a bit of a challenge. That’s why I created this free number recognition printable. Kids can see very easily that there are many ways that we can show the same number.

You can also practice building number lines by providing the kids with one set of cards, such as the balloons or hands. After the numbers are all in order, have the kids close their eyes while you remove one or two cards from the number line. When the kids open their eyes have them figure out which numbers are missing.

These cards can also be used to play Memory by choosing two number formats. Or choose four formats and play a game of Go Fish!

Choose a set of cards from 1-10 in multiple formats (1-hand, 2-balloon, 3-car, etc.) and display them around the room. Call out a number and have the kids hunt for the correct card.

There are so many things that you can do with this one printable!
