Add Hands-On Manipulatives

Give students buttons, beads, mini erasers, or play dough balls to place on each flower as they count it. Adding manipulatives to any spring counting activity for preschool helps solidify the concept.

Use as an Interactive Bulletin Board

Create a spring bulletin board with the preschool number line poster printable. Refer to it throughout the day as you reference different numbers.

Place in the Math Center

Laminate the preschool number line printable, or slide them into plastic sleeves. Then, place them at the math center for students to practice counting, sequencing, number matching, writing and reading numbers, and more!

Create a Number Line Game

Students can roll a die (or two), then find that number mat and place counters on it. They can take turns with a partner until all mats are full. Scatter number mats randomly, or place them in a number line for preschool learners to see the numbers in sequential order.

Another math game could include placing a set of number cards upside down and alternatively drawing a card, naming the number, counting the flowers, and placing on a large preschool number line 1 to 10.

Practice Handwriting

Posters that have been laminated or put into a plastic sleeve are perfect for handwriting practice! Students can trace the numerals and/or number words with dry erase markers or crayons over and over to develop dexterity while improving number recognition.

More Number Line Activities for Preschool

Students who need an extra challenge can use the free printable number line for preschoolers to begin exploring addition. Use the cards with large addition/equals symbols to build addition sentences and recite orally.

Students that need extra support can focus on numbers 0-5 first, then move on to 6-10.

We know games and challenges are engaging ways to learn. You could turn this into a number sequencing challenge by racing to see who can put the numbers in order the fastest. Use an existing number line for reference to scaffold those that need it.

Alternatively, take out the “pressure” of the challenge but keep the “race” aspect by placing numbers on one side of an open area and allow students to run and grab one number at a time, then run it back to another area to put them in order.
