Counting and Coloring Sheets

Welcome to our Numbers to 10 Worksheets.

Here you will find a selection of free counting and coloring worksheets which will help your child learn to count and recognise numbers of objects up to 10.

Our sheets have either an animal theme or a vehicle theme.

By the time children get to preschool, they are starting to develop an understanding of of what a number is and to recognise the number of objects in small groups.

Counting is probably the most important skill your child will learn at this age.

By the end of pre-k, they should be able to count to 10 reliably, and understand the 1:1 correspondence of numbers and objects, knowing that the last number they counted tells them how many objects they are counting.

As well as developing their number sense, they are beginning to understand the language of position, and can tell the relative position of objects using words like 'above', 'below', 'next to'.

At this stage, children should be allowed to explore and play as much as possible with different materials, shapes, puzzles, and get an idea of how they work.

When comparing objects, children can tell which object is bigger or smaller than another. They can tell when two objects are the same and when they are different.

By the time children get to preschool, most of them will be able to count up to 10, and some of them may reach quite a bit higher.

What many children of this age need is to be able to count sets of objects accurately and understand 1:1 correspondence.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- count numbers up to 10;
- practice their coloring skills.

We hope using these preschool number worksheets will get your child off to a great start in their journey through math.

We have split the sheets on this page into different sections as follows:

- a reference section where the worksheets are colored and ready to be sent home or used as a quick reference.
- a color-in only section, where the sheets just need to be colored, and the numbers are already written in order.
- a count and color-in section where the children have to count and write the number, then color in the pictures.

Take a look at some more of our worksheets similar to these.

These sheets will help your child learn to write and form the numbers from 1 to 10 correctly.

There is also a counting challenge on each sheet which involve shading the correct number of objects.

Here is our selection of kindergarten comparing worksheets.

These worksheets will help your child to compare and start to order different things.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- understand the concept of most, least, biggest, smallest;
- count up to 10 objects;
- compare a range of different objects;
- compare numbers up to 20.

These sheets support Elementary Math benchmarks.

After your child has learnt to count objects up to 10 and write their numbers, they are ready to start counting one more and one less.

The worksheets here will support your child in counting one more/one less than a number of quantity.

Most of the sheets focus on counting up to 10. There are also some worksheets that go up to 25.

Here is our selection of number bonds sheets to 10.
