Materials needed for the Free Printable Valentine's Day Counting Cards:

use heart gems to practice counting to 10 with this preschool counting activityTo prep: Print and laminate the heart counting cards (download below). These free printable pumpkin counting cards are a great hands-on way to introduce counting to your preschooler! Load up the pumpkin truck with numbers 1-10 and have some math fun this fall!

To use: Have your child cover the pictures of the hearts on the counting cards with the correct number of heart gems.

These cards are perfect to new learners who are not ready for independent counting. The kids simply cover each heart picture on the card as they are counting. That way they know when to stop for each number.

1:1 correspondence activity for toddler, preschool, kindergarten

When a child is just starting to count, it is a good idea to limit the numbers that you work with. Start with 1-3, then 1-5, 1-8 and finally 1-10. This helps kids focus on the one-to-one correspondence (the concept that one object equals on number) rather than memorization of the names of the numbers.

When we used these cards we counted as we covered the pictures and then repeated the numbers again.

This is because while a child is putting the hearts on the cards, they are concentrating on a lot of different things like grasping the small objects and placing them on the correct spot. Because of that they don't catch the rhythm of counting in order.

This also reinforces that fact that numbers have a correct order and gives extra opportunities to practice.
