Free Preschool Number Printables
While I’m not a big fan of preschool worksheets, I do like using interactive printables with the kids. They can supplement hands-on math lessons and let the children practice math skills. PLUS, number printables like those below can often be used in multiple ways. Multi-purpose and interactive is a win in my book.
I’ve broken the free math printables down into categories. This way, it’s easier for you to find what you’re looking for. I plan to keep adding to this collection, so be sure to save it and come back regularly.
Each link below leads to an individual free printable. You can get access to each of the counting printables through those individual links. To get the most out of this page, follow these steps:
- Take a look through the entire list.
- Make note of the printables you’re most interested in.
- Click the links to the printables you want.
- Grab the free printables through their links. Most often, that is near the bottom of each of the printables’ pages.
Okay, let’s jump into all of the free preschool number printables!
Free Printable Number Books for Preschoolers
First, we’ll kick things off with printable counting books. I love that these emergent readers can be used to explore both literacy AND math skills with children. They each come with multiple suggestions for using the books with your students.
Keep in mind, the printable number books can also be transformed into counting mats, too! As I mentioned earlier, I love printables that can be used more than one way.
Next up in our collection of free preschool number printables are calendar numbers. You can definitely buy calendar numbers pre-made in many teacher stores. But I’ve enjoyed making my own for a while now. In fact, I have quite a few ready to share with you as the year progresses. Below are the sets I have ready right now. They each contain numbers 0 to 35, and they’re sized to be used with traditional or linear calendars.
You can check out all of them through the link above, but here are some of our favorites:
The calendar number cards can be used in SO many different ways, with a wide variety of materials. Kids can explore number identification, counting, number formation, and one-to-one correspondence with the calendar numbers.
Printable Number Games for Preschoolers
Dice games are a must-have when it comes to free preschool number printables. Almost every child I’ve ever worked with (in preschool, kindergarten, and at home) has loved playing number games. You can use them to teach social skills like taking turns. AND there’s all of the math – subitizing and number identification, especially. All from one little printable.
Transportation Math Activities for Preschoolers (this one has two dice game printables)
You can let the kids color directly on these number printables, or you can make them reusable with dry erase pockets and manipulatives. Either way, your students will have a blast.
Oh, and I found a few more your kids might enjoy:
Printable Ten Frames
So many math concepts can be explored through ten frames, right?! Depending on how you utilize them, you can teach number identification, counting, left to right and top to bottom progression, making ten, etc. And they’re pretty simple to turn into math games, too.
Rainbow Yarn Sensory Bin (with free printable rainbow ten frames)
The above have been some well-loved ten frames with my students, and I have more coming later this year. So be sure to keep an eye out for those!
I couldn’t help myself – I had to go find a few more ten frames! Be sure to add them to your free preschool number printables:
- Dinosaur Ten Frames
- Ten Frame Gardening Printable
- Apple Ten Frames
- Halloween Ten Frames
- School Bus Ten Frames
Even More Free Preschool Number Printables
I suppose this is the miscellaneous category!? These are the counting printables that are a wee bit different than the calendar numbers, books, dice games, and ten frames I’ve shared above. That doesn’t mean they’re any less valuable as tools for teaching about numbers though!
And just a few more to integrate into your number plans:
Now the big question is, which of the free preschool number printables would your kids enjoy the most?
