Sometimes math gets a bad wrap. It can be a difficult concept for little learners. It is right or wrong, there is no room for interpretation. Regardless of it’s difficulty, it is an imperative skill for preschoolers to learn. This is why fun, hands on activities are so important.
Learning About Number Grid Games:
pRINTABLE NUMBER GRID 1 TO 100
ASKING STUDENTS TO ANALYZE THE DATA FROM NUMBER CHARTS CAN HELP ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE:
- What does 10 objects look like?
- Which has more; 5 or 8?
- What pattern can I find in the number chart?
- How high can I count on the chart?
Counting grids are a fabulous tool for preschool math. Not only do they make it easy to differentiate for your kids, but cover a wide variety of skills. Immediately children will strengthen 1:1 correspondence, counting as well as number recognition. Fine motor skills are also strengthened when manipulatives are used.
These great number activities can be used in small groups, one-on-one with a child, or independently in a math center.

How to Use the Activities
Using these number practice counting grids is super versatile and this easy to prep activity will provide hours of learning for your kids. Children will simply roll the dice, identify the number (or number of dots), count out that amount of manipulatives along the numbers of the grid.
You can use a regular die for the 1-10 counting grid, a larger multi-sided die (such as a 1-10 or two digit number dice like 1-20) with the 1-20 counting grids or use a double-die to work on multiplying, adding and subtracting with the counting grid to 100 printables.
