These activity sheets will give your kindergarten students practice in counting objects and identifying numbers.

#### How do you match a number to the amount of a group of objects? A pre-number learning concept that helps children in identifying objects is the concept of classification. The interesting thing about classifying is that it can be done with or without the involvement of the numbers. It is not only a mathematical concept. For example; separating objects into a distinct group, such as the same color t-shirts, and same color balls. Before children move forward, they need to learn how to sort and classify the objects before they come across problems like these. Classifying and sorting is the act of placing things that are the same or similar in a category. Grouping them requires them having some specific traits and attributes. For example, animals can be grouped or classified based on their nature or type. You can have your kids classify anything including from toy cars, balls, toy animals, leaves and books to plates and spoons. You can expose your children to a variety of opportunities to let them classify the objects. Grouping can also be done on the basis of the same color, big/small and long/short.

Integers will be freely provided for students to match the number of items of a group to. At first we start with a one-to-one number-object match. We move further on to match whole sets of objects to complete sets of integers. We tried to keep the objects to less than eleven to allow students a great success rate. These worksheets provide practice exercises on counting simple drawings of different objects and choosing the number that correctly matches the group by drawing a line between the two.
