Preschool Counting Game

We are playing this game at our house this morning, so I thought I would share. It's a great way to teach counting and even math. I'm always on the lookout for tactical, learning activities that are applicable for my almost 6 year old and my barely 3 year old. A friend who teaches special education taught us this game. It is very versatile.

  • Print 5 sets of feet (or more if you want to go higher than 10), and cut out
  • Write a number on each foot
  • Have children try to put the numbers in order on the floor
  • Hide a number and have smaller children hunt for the missing number
  • Stand on numbers while counting (beginner addition) 
  • Try going backwards while counting (beginner subtraction)

The possibilities are endless. Have fun!

I've been known to toss sight word cards on the floor and have them hop around reading them.

have you read through family math? they have some great stuff too.
