## Number Sense Activities for Preschoolers

Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love these printable number sense puzzles to help toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartens learn numbers 1-10, how to count 10 pumpkins, and how each number can be represented by different images and groupings. This is such a cute math game for preschoolers for a fall theme or a Thanksgiving themed activity.

## What is Number Sense

Number sense refers the a child’s understanding of what a number means. It means they can see different ways numbers are made (tally marks, dots, counting, equations) and understand how they fit in the world around them and make comparisons.

## Number Sense Games

Start out by scrolling to the bottom of the post, under the terms of use, and click on the text link that says >> Download <<. The pdf file will open in a new window for you to save the freebie and print the pages. I suggest printing out the 10 pumpkin pies in color on cardstock and/or laminate them for durability. There is a pumpkin pie puzzle for numbers one to ten.

## Number Sense Activities for Kindergarten

Now cut the pies out. Then cut each pumpkin pie into four slices by cutting along the solid orange lines. Store them in a ziplock bag or file folder to have a fun math supplement, extra practice, or math center ready to go when you need. it.

## Pumpkin Counting

Students will pick a number slice and then find other slices that represent the same number. Each pie consists of the numeral number, pumpkins to count, a dot representation of numbers (looks like a domino), and a tall mark representation of the number.

For example, there are 5 tally marks on the slice above which means the same as a number 5.

HINT: This activity is easier if you only give your students two pies to put together at a time. Make it more difficult by giving them up to 10 pumpkin pies to complete at one time.

Preschoolers will improve number sense by counting pumpkins while putting together the pumpkin pies activity
