More Counting To 10 Activities For Preschoolers To Try With Your Posters and Counting Cards:

There are so many ways to make these fun Christmas themed posters into hands on counting activities for preschoolers!

Here are some other ways to incorporate these posters and counting cards into your preschool math activity lesson plans.

Interactive Number Line

  • Hand out the number posters and ask your students to line up in order numbers 1-10. Once they are in order from least to greatest, see if they can reverse the order!
  • Lay the posters out onto the floor and secure them using tape. Kids can practice identifying the numbers as they walk down the line. They can also practice skip counting by stepping over the even or odd numbers.
  • Introduce addition with your interactive number line. For example, for the math problem 2 + 3, you could help your little one by saying: If you are standing on the number 2 and you add three steps, what number will you be standing on?

Musical Numbers

Place the number posters around the room on the floor. You may want to use something to secure them so that your little ones don’t slip.

Play Christmas songs and let your students move around the room. When you stop the music, have your students stand on the closest number to them.

Each student will then count and identify the number poster they are standing on.

Another version of this game is to play elimination style, like in musical chairs. Start with one less number poster then the number of kids that are playing. Whichever kid is not standing on a number at the end of the round is “out”. Continue to take away one poster each round until you have a winner!

Number Matching

  • Both the number cards and posters can easily be turned into a matching game. Simply print out two copies of each number. If you need an individual activity, give your child the counting cards to match. If you need a whole group activity, give each child a number poster and have them find their matching number partner.
  • For an independent activity, hang the number posters on the wall. Then provide your child with post it notes containing the numeral, word, or number represented in dots or tally marks (this can be differentiated depending on the skill you want to practice). Have your child match the post it note to the poster.
