I Know My Numbers

A printable coloring page with the numbers 1 to 10.

Invite children to color the page. Can they name each numeral and show how many it represents, using their fingers?  

  • Notice numerals all around you in the world, and go on “number hunts” on signs when you’re out and about (“Can you find the number 3?” “Can you find a sign with four numbers on it? What numbers are they?”) 
  • Help children practice writing numerals. You might invite them to write the zip codes on envelopes you’re addressing, or they can copy your phone number and say each numeral in it (so they can have memorized before they start school).  
  • Write (and say) a numeral and invite your child to hold up that many fingers. Take turns. Finish with a high five!
