As promised, I’m continuing on with the transportation theme that I introduced on Thursday with the free pattern making printable. Today I have a free counting to 10 printable pack for you. It’s super cute and I can’t wait until Shiloh is ready to use it. This counting to 10 pack is great for preschoolers and kids in the beginning of kindergarten. You could also use it as a review resource for 1st graders who need to learn to count things quicker.

These four fun activities will make a great addition to your transportation activities. I find that using a theme to teach basic concepts helps my kids to connect better with the information. When a topic is exciting to them and they can see it used in many different ways, they seems to make more cross-curricular connections. While this is especially important with older kids when they are insisting that they “won’t really need” whatever they are studying, this is great for younger kids too, showing them the connection between math, reading and high interest topics.

My three  year old loves talking about different forms of transportation right now. As part of our home speech therapy, we are working to increase her number of words that she will say without prompting by another person. So it’s really a great tool to use printed pictures that she can “talk” about. We can point to each picture on the activities and practice counting so that she can hear the words modeled.

Counting to 10 Clip Cards

If you have never used clip cards before, they are a very simple way to get kids to use their fine motor skills while practicing other skills. Simply print and cut apart the clip cards. I usually laminate for durability. You could also print on card stock, but the cards probably will not last as long. My three year old is very rough with things, so the laminating helps things to last more than 10 seconds.

Then, have your child use a clothespin to indicate the correct answer on the cards.
