I was a teacher back in the day, that’s right. It was so much fun teaching my Kindergarteners and then moving up to second grade. As we all know budgets are tight. Even back then I had to supplement the fun I wanted to integrate into my lesson plans. SO if I could find freebies I was all about them.
Number Color by Number

- Smencils colored pencils are by far the most fun and vibrant shades ever.
- With kids I prefer that they have a smaller box of crayons so there are fewer choices, but enough. 😉
Number Recognition Worksheets
Now you can print one of these if you only want one specific number you are working on in the classroom or all of them. If you want all then you just need the link below and just hit the print button on your computer. Doesn’t work quite as well on your phone so I’d use a desktop or laptop instead.
When I was teaching I liked to start with just one thing, a digit and one letter to work on until they got it just right without being frustrated. These were great for that as well as my color by number Preschool sheets that focus on letter recognition.
You can use the same colored pencils or crayons for both and they are fun as well as having a learning element to each one. And free!! I’d work thru them all in preparation for starting school. Knowing both is vital for what your child should know before Kindergarten.

How to teach children their numbers
Teaching children numbers can be a fun and rewarding experience. These and our Pirate coloring page options here are fun ways to do it but there are others;
- Sing counting songs and nursery rhymes that involve numbers. Songs like “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe,” “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed,” or “Ten in the Bed” can make learning numbers enjoyable and memorable for young children.
- Use number flashcards with colorful images and corresponding numbers. Show the cards to children and ask them to identify the numbers.
- Incorporate hands-on activities to make learning numbers more interactive. Use building blocks, beads, or counting toys to help children understand the concept of numbers through touch and play.
- Play games that involve number recognition. For example, show a number and ask the child to find that number among a set of other numbers. You can also use magnetic numbers on the fridge or a whiteboard for interactive learning.
- Read books that focus on numbers. Look for picture books that feature numbers prominently and engage children in counting objects and animals.
- Encourage children to count everyday objects around them. Count the number of apples, toys, or steps while climbing stairs. This real-life practice reinforces their understanding of numbers.
- Provide opportunities for children to trace and write numbers. Use worksheets or create your own with large, dotted numbers for them to trace. This helps develop their fine motor skills while learning numbers.
- Introduce number puzzles and games that require matching numbers with the correct number of objects. This can be a fun and challenging way for children to learn and practice their numbers.
Utilize free educational apps and websites that offer interactive number games and activities for children. Many of these resources are designed to be engaging and enjoyable for young learners.
Incorporate simple math games that involve basic addition and subtraction with numbers. Use toys, counters, or fingers to make learning math concepts playful. Be patient and repeat number lessons regularly. Children often need repetition to reinforce their understanding of numbers.
Praise and encourage children as they learn using any of these fun activities or printable coloring pages. Positive reinforcement can boost their confidence and motivation to continue learning.
Remember, each child learns at their own pace, so be patient and make learning numbers a positive and enjoyable experience. Through a combination of playful activities, repetition, and positive reinforcement, children will gradually build their number skills and develop a solid foundation for future math learning.
