Counting time - circle, match and write numbers

Updated: Aug 18




What is it

Counting pictures and circling/matching/writing the correct number.

Each set comes with 3 different levels of difficulty

  • Level 1: 1 to 5

  • Level 2: 1 to 10

  • Level 3: 1 to 15


Teaching Objectives

  • Learning to identify the numbers

  • Learning to count and associate the quantity to a number

  • Learning to generalize the different ways of counting through the different modes of the worksheet

How to use

Count and Circle

  • Using a pencil or marker, strike out each picture as your child counts to help your child remember what was counted

  • After your child has finished counting, get your child to reference to the numbers, find the correct answer and circle accordingly




Count and Match

  • Using a pencil or marker, strike out each picture as your child counts to help child remember what was counted

  • With the help of a ruler, get your child to match to the correct answer on the right

  • Additional tip: Guide your child to do the questions from top to bottom rather than skipping the questions. This is to teach your child to do the worksheet systematically and not miss out on a question at the end of the worksheet.




Count and Write

  • Using a pencil or marker, strike out each picture as your child counts to help child remember what was counted

  • After your child has finished counting, get your child to write down the number on the line provided


Teaching tips

  • If your child finds it difficult to strike off the pictures, you can get your child to point and count instead. This way, your child gets to practice counting without being distracted by the additional step of crossing out with the pencil.

  • Start with worksheets from a lower level to build up your child’s confidence. When your child is more fluent in counting, then proceed to a higher level with bigger numbers.

  • If your child finds it difficult to write the numbers on their own, you can help them by tracing - draw dotted outlines of the number after counting. Then, get him to trace the number on his own.
