Kindergarten Counting - Introduction

Students begin their math learning path by learning to count. In Kindergarten, students count to 100 and write the numbers 1-20. Students will use their counting skills to begin to add and subtract. Students also begin identifying shapes, their attributes, and their position in relation to each other.

When kindergarten students (or children of any age) first learn to count, they learn to associate numbers with objects. The more you involve students with counting real objects, the more quickly they will learn this skill. Start with objects students can touch—forks on the table, pennies, letters received in the mail. Then move on to small sets of objects students can see, but cannot touch—windows in a house, birds sitting in the yard or on an electrical wire, red cars in a parking lot. These objects should not be moving. It is a challenge for students to keep track of what they have counted, especially when they can’t touch the objects. Since keeping track is a skill they are also developing, at first the objects should be arranged in rows. Later objects can be arranged in a circle. This is challenging at first because students have to remember where they started. Once that is mastered, objects can be in an more scattered arrangement.

Worksheets

Counting Objects

Students count an arrangement of objects. They start with only a few objects arranged in a line. They progress to more objects arranged in rows, circles, and scattered. Each progression requires students to pay more attention to what they have already counted.

This math lesson meets these kindergarten common core standards: K.CC.A.1, K.CC.B.4.a, K.CC.B.4.b, K.CC.B.4.c, K.CC.B.5

Counting 1 to 5 Items in a Line

Students count up to 5 objects arranged in a line. (5 printable worksheets)

Counting 1 to 10 Items in More Than One Line

Students count up to 10 objects arranged in more than one line. (6 printable worksheets)

Counting 11 to 19 Items on More than One Line

Students count up to 19 objects arranged in more than one line. (8 printable worksheets)

Counting 5 to 20 Items in a Circle

Students count up to 20 objects arranged in a circle. (8 printable worksheets)

Count 1 to 10 Items Scattered on the Page

Students count up to 10 objects scattered on the page. (6 printable worksheets)

Counting Numbers

In these math lessons, your kindergarten student will learn to count in order, writing the next few missing numbers in counting order. Students also practice counting by 10s from 10 to 100.

These math lesson meets the following kindergarten common core standards: K.CC.A.1, K.CC.A.2

Counting to 5

Students will practice counting to 5 by ones through identifying and writing the missing numbers on the given worksheet. (This printable activity includes 4 worksheets)

Counting from 6 to 10

Students will practice counting by ones through identifying and writing the missing number in the correct box. Each missing number will be number between 6 and 10. (This printable activity includes 4 worksheets)

Counting from 11 to 19

Students will practice counting by ones through identifying and writing the missing number in the correct box. Each missing number will be a number between 11 and 19. (This printable activity includes 4 worksheets)

Counting from 1 to 20

Students will use their skills to identify and write missing numbers (1-20) by counting by ones. (This printable activity includes 4 worksheets)

Count forward to the next number

Students will count forward beginning from a given number other than one by writing the missing numbers. (3 printable worksheets)

Count forward 2-5 numbers

Students will count forward two to five numbers by writing each missing number in the correct blanks. (3 printable worksheets)

Count forward up to 10 numbers

Count forward up to 10 numbers from the given starting number. (8 printable worksheets)

Counting Charts

These charts can be used throughout this year to support students’ learning. The charts should be used daily to help students learn to count objects and to learn counting numbers to 100 by rote. Start by having them count just a few objects or say a few numbers and gradually have them continue counting higher.

These math lessons meet the following kindergarten common core standards: K.CC.A.1

Counting Chart - 1 to 10 Objects

Students can practice counting by pointing to the objects or numbers, or by saying the name of each number in order. This chart includes numbers 1 through 10. (1 Printable chart)

Counting Chart - 1 to 20 Objects

Practice counting by pointing to the objects or numbers, or by saying the name of each number in order. This counting chart includes numbers 1 though 20. (1 printable chart)

Counting Chart - 1 to 50

Students can practice counting by pointing to the numbers and saying the name of each number in order. This counting chart includes numbers 1 to 50. (1 printable chart)

Counting Chart - 1 to 100

Students can use this chart to practice counting by pointing to the numbers and saying the name of each number in order. This counting chart includes numbers from 1 to 100. (1 printable chart)

Count by 10s to 100

Students will practice counting by tens to 100 by writing the missing numbers in the correct blanks. (5 printable worksheets)

Writing Numbers

While students are learning to count to 100, they will learn to write only the numbers from 1 to 20. These worksheets give students practice first with a small range of numbers. After practicing in these small ranges, they will work with all numbers from 1 to 20.

These math lesson meet the following kindergarten common core standards: K.CC.A.3

Practice writing numbers 1 to 5

Students will practice writing the numbers 1 through 5 with the given worksheets. (5 printable practice activities)

Students will practice writing the numbers 6 through 10 with the given worksheets. (5 printable writing activities)

Practice writing numbers 11 to 19

Students will practice writing numbers 11 through 19 with the given worksheets. (5 printable practice activities)

Practice writing numbers 1 to 20

Students will practice writing numbers 1 through 20 using the given worksheets. (5 printable practice activities)

Place Value

The building block of counting is understanding that the number system is based on 10s. Students learn about teen numbers by counting 10 and adding on some more.

These math lesson meet the following kindergarten common core standards: K.CC.A.1, K.NBT.A.1

Make 10 Using Place Value Blocks

Counts tens and ones with place value blocks. Look at the given number of blocks and circle the group below that makes 10. (6 printable worksheets)

Place Value Blocks - Circle 10 and Write the Number

Count the number of objects in each group, then circle a group of ten. Students will write the number of tens and ones. (6 printable worksheets)

Draw Blocks to Represent Teen Numbers

Students will be asked to draw place value blocks that represent the given numbers in each problem. (6 printable worksheets)

Write an Equation to Represent the Blocks

Count tens and ones using place value blocks and write an equation in the blanks. (6 printable worksheets)

Compare Objects and Numbers

Students first learn to compare by looking at two groups of objects. After students learn what each number means, they can then compare the values of two numbers.

These math lesson meet the following kindergarten common core standards: K.CC.C.6, K.CC.C.7

Comparing - match up to 5 objects

Compare the number of items in the boxes and math the items with the same number. (4 printable worksheets)

Comparing - match up to 10 objects

Compare the number of objects in the box to the left to the two boxes on the right, then circle the box on the right that has the same number. These worksheets compare numbers 1 through 10 by matching. (4 printable worksheets)
