﻿ Preschool Math Worksheets
Printable math worksheets specifically for preschool students and teachers.

#### Prior to entering Kindergarten there are many pre-math skills that children should begin to work on. While the Common Core (most standards for that matter) overlook this age in the learning process, we try to offer you some ideas of the topics that are important. The work focuses mostly on understanding basic numeracy and relationships of numbers and objects. You would be surprised to know that not many students enter Kindergarten understanding the concept of the position "above". Yet this is very common. You will find that parents simply explaining concepts will help children improve on this. I would even go as far as suggesting that teachers make some of these sheets summer pre-Kindergarten work for their students in summer work packets.

Several studies have shown that the math skills that we enter kindergarten are one of the best predictive measures of both reading and math skills at the third and fifth grade levels. You read that right, math skills actually predict reading skills. This is just one of the very many reasons that math is critical to students at this level. There are a number of key skills that we should be focusing on at the preschool level. It all starts with having a solid sense of numbers. How to count forward and then backward leads students to learn how to add and subtract. At this level all forms of math seem abstract. The concept of numbers as a representation of a real situation is a huge skill. In this section you will find simple worksheets that children can work on independently. The topics including simple comparisons, finding connections between objects, counting, days of the week, measurement, positions and relations, simple shapes, and the concept of subtraction.

## Comparing Objects

Just being able to identify key characteristics is where we want to be with this skill.

## Connecting and Matching Objects

This will lead students to work on contrasting objects and being able to eventually sort them.

## Days of the Week

Not only knowing the names, but the order and sequence of the days is important too.

## Half- What Is It?

You will visually show this. The math comes after we understand the concept.

## Identifying Geometric Shapes

Learn to name and even draw these guys.

## Long / Tall and Short

Students will learn to estimate the height of objects and compare to objects.

## Same and Different

This is the first step towards learning how to identify likeness and differences between items that are in groups.

## Starting to Count

The bounce counts always work with students.

## Subtraction by Counting

We encourage students to cross out the number of objects that are being subtracted.

## Understanding an Objects Position

When we are talking about position, we need to remember that this is a relative position to another object.
