Children use early math skills throughout their daily routines and activities. The most basic skill is counting, which involves more than just learning numbers. Counting involves understanding the meaning of numbers. By the age of 2 to 3 years, kids should be able to count to three; some kids can even count up to five or ten. They mastered the skill of counting only when they could match numbers with a corresponding amount of items.
This worksheet provides exercises of counting objects in different groups, each with maximumly 5 objects. Kids should count the amount of objects in different groups, and write down, or speak out, the corresponding missing counts. Practicing counting with these exercises can help children understand numbers and master counting skills.
The objects shown on the exercises include apples, balloons, lemons, strawberries, stars, ducks, bananas, and basketballs. The cartoon pictures of these objects also provide a good way of introducing colors and shapes to children.
