Counting is the act of determining the number of elements in a set or a group. It is the very first step of a kid entering into mathematics, and it builds the foundation for a lifetime of success in maths. By the age of 2 to 3, kids start to develop counting skills, and most of them are able to count to 5. At 4 years old, most kids can count up to 10, although they might mix up the orders of the numbers and not yet fully understand what the numbers actually mean. Kids should be provided a lot of experience practicing counting skills.
Counting without seeing what is being counted is hard for the beginning learners. When teaching counting, parents or teachers often use common objects as the visual representations of numbers. Engaging kids in such visual activities can help them easily understand the abstract concept of numbers: representing the quantity of various objects.
This worksheet provides the numbers from 1 to 10, corresponding with a group of colorful blocks (squares). Parents could use it to teach kids counting from 1 to 10. These colorful number blocks can easily attract their attention. And such visual learning can help them understand the meanings of numbers and master counting skills.
