How to use

  1. Reading Instructions

  • Point out the amount of objects that need to be coloured, as well as the name of the object

  1. Colouring and Counting

  • Colour the correct amount, while counting at the same time

  • Child is to stop colouring after all the required objects are coloured. Assistance may be provided to remind your child to stop or to continue count after colouring

  • Additional colouring opportunities are provided at the bottom of the page to familiarise your child with numbers and their spelling

Teaching tips

  • If your child has difficulty remembering the amount of objects to colour, you can remind them periodically throughout the session, especially after colouring a few of the objects

  • Another way to prime your child is to point at the instruction on the top of the page to remind them of the amount required

Embed more learning opportunities

  • Attributes - Some of the activities have objects of different sizes! Use them as an opportunity to teach attributes like “big” and “small”!

  • Expressive language - What number is this?

  • General knowledge exposure - associating the pictures in the worksheet to a theme as you teach your child how to count!
