Occupations Counting

Updated: Dec 1, 2021


What is it

Learning the different occupations through counting

Each occupation comes with 3 different types of counting worksheets

  • Count and Circle

  • Count and Match

  • Count and Write



Teaching Objectives

  • Learning to identify the types of pictures/items associated to each occupation

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • At the end of each worksheet, you can work on the general knowledge of each occupation by testing your child on which items are used by each occupation.
