The bulk of Kindergarten math instruction is, simply, numbers! They are the foundation for everything else that comes next, right? Adding, subtracting, comparing, and more. But every preschool and kindergarten teacher knows that teaching “numbers” is anything but simple! It requires time, patience, repetition and variety.

### How to Teach Number Recognition:

##### NUMBER PRACTICE WORKSHEETS

NUMBER RECOGNITION IS A KEY COMPONENT OF EARLY LEARNING PROGRAMS. WITHIN THE SKILL OF NAMING NUMBERS LIES COUNTING AND WRITING NUMBERS ALSO.

Number recognition is a loaded concept, in my opinion! We can’t just show students a flashcard with each number on it and, Boom!, they know their numbers.

“Knowing” a number means more than just recognizing the numeral. It means naming it effortlessly, picking it from a group of other numbers, counting to it, counting back from it, and matching it with the correct quantity. True understanding of numbers helps students later with pre-algebra and word problems.

Clearly, your students are going to need a bit of repetition and meaningful number sense worksheets and games before they are ready to solve problems and master number writing, recognition, and counting.

The printable number 11 tracing worksheets give students opportunities to explore the Number 11 in a variety of ways until they reach automaticity in recognizing/naming/writing/counting.

The free worksheets can be incorporated into your day in a “number” of ways!

• Morning work
• Math lesson
• Math center
• Homework
• Early finishers

In addition to learning to count, the free printable worksheets help children develop other foundational math skills.

Take the learning beyond number formation by posing questions about numbers as you explore them.

• What kinds of lines make number 11? (curved/straight/both)
• Can you show 11 on your fingers? Why not?
• Is eleven greater than/less than 10? How do you know?
• How many digits are in 11?

### How Can Kids Build Number Sense?

##### USING KINDERGARTEN NUMBER WORKSHEETS TO GO BEYOND MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED

NUMBER SENSE IS THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND, CONNECT, AND RELATE NUMBERS TO EACH OTHER AND THE WORLD.

Simple number worksheets for kindergarten help build number sense because they allow children to work with numbers in a variety of ways, from naming and writing the number to counting and comparing it.

Here are some skills the free number tracing worksheets will build in your students:

• One-to-one correspondence
• Counting fluency (forward and backward)
• Fine motor skills
• Correct number formation
• Number comparisons
• Grouping

## Why Is It Important For Kids To Learn Numbers?

Printable number worksheets give ample opportunities to explore different facets of each number. This is an important step on the journey toward solid number sense and the ability to move on to complex math skills.

## Develops Automaticity

When the process of identifying an 11 is time-consuming and laborious, it makes it difficult for a child to then move beyond and add 11+2 or subtract 20-11. Repeated practice on math worksheets results in a number automaticity that is necessary later.

## Enhances Handwriting

Writing numbers is difficult for children. Their hand muscles are still developing and they are still learning writing vocabulary, like straight line, curved line, start at the top/middle/bottom. Forming/tracing numbers on free math worksheets helps students master number writing.

## Improves Number Sense

Knowing that 11 is greater than 10, or less than 20, is an important piece of understanding numbers. As children learn to identify numbers on a number line in sequence, they begin to make important comparisons and understand quantity.

## Teaches Grouping

Counting groups of objects or matching a number with a group helps kids begin to “subitize,” or be able to recognize small groups of numbers without actually counting each singular object. Subitizing is an important math skill because it takes away the labor of counting each group every time.

### “My multi-aged group loved this even more than I thought they would! “

My kiddos love this! I use it for early finishers or in the morning while they are staggering in during breakfast. They are very engaged and enjoy playing!

### Counting Mats

Use any page with a large number image as a mat where students count small objects onto it, or place them into the ten frame.

Download more numbers 1-20 to create a set of large sorting cards. Students can place them sequentially, or backwards, and then practice oral counting.

### Small Group

Use any of the pages to reinforce the entire number with a small group that needs review. You can easily practice ID, formation, and counting on one page.
