What is it

Count and Match worksheet 

I see and I count activity

Teaching objectives

How to use

Count and Match worksheet

  • Count the number of animals on the left and

  • Count the number of animals on the left and draw a line to the correct number on the right

  • Encourage your child to read aloud e.g. “5 ducks” after counting

  • You may draw dotted lines for your child to trace or teach him to use a ruler

I see and I count activity

  • Make learning fun by playing ‘I spy with my little eyes’ with your child

  • This printable really puts your child’s attending and ability to scan to the test! The simplified version comes with a white background, while the advanced version has a farm scene where you’ll really need to use your eye power!

  • You may model for your child by saying “I spy with my little eyes....some ducks! There are 1, 2, 3, 4 ducks! Now it’s your turn!”

  • Give your child time to look for the animal in the picture. If it is too challenging, you can cover parts of the picture to reduce the area he needs to scan

Teaching tip

  • Children tend to count too quickly! Develop a good habit to point and count one animal at a time purposefully. This will help to develop one-to-one correspondence, which is a building block of counting

Embed more learning opportunities

  • Receptive language: Which animal has feathers? Point to the animal with a tail

  • Fine motor skills: Using a ruler

  • General knowledge: Which animal plays in the mud? Name me other animals you can find in a pond
