Using Color by Number Worksheets from Jewel’s School Gems, I currently offer several color by number worksheets in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I love creating color by number worksheets for different themes and holidays. Below are a couple of feedback from awesome teachers. For my Fire Safety color by number worksheets, here’s what Ashley had to say: ”My son has loved coloring these! He saw them on Pinsetters and really wanted them, and I’m so happy we got them. He has been really excited to do one each day. For my Apple ones, here’s what Melanie said: ”Just right for my Kindergartens first experience with coloring by number and perfect for our apple theme.”
Children learn the meaning of symbols. Color by number worksheets are fantastic in helping children understand that symbols have meaning. Not only do children get better at color recognition when using color by number pages; they also learn that numbers can be used to represent other things and aren’t only just for counting. Later on, children will be able to grasp that different objects in their surroundings can actually be used as a symbol for other things and have other meanings. It’s just undeniable that symbolic understanding is important to function well in the society we live in.
Recent studies have shown that a child’s math skills upon entering kindergarten can be a strong predictor of her future academic performance in both math and reading throughout the elementary grades. Math learning promotes working memory, improves attention, and increases other basic cognitive skills. But don’t head to the store to buy flash cards and worksheets, which can likely squelch your child’s natural interest in the subject. Instead, engage her in these playful activities to help her develop a strong foundation in understanding math. Counting is important because it helps children learn number sequence, but even before counting, children need to develop a basic understanding of numbers. Three important number concepts are one-to-one correspondence (each object is counted only once); cardinality (the last object counted is the total number of objects); and in variance (the number of objects doesn’t change if they are configured differently–for instance, spread out or placed in a circle). Here are some ways to help your child develop these basic number concepts.
