When children first begin counting, they can't get enough of it. That's because every time they do, they make a one-to-one representation with what they see and a number they now possess in their head. The more practice they get, the better, and the better their efficiency is as they grow in their math skills. This free bird counting worksheet is full of color and a great way to give your children practice counting as well as working on their fine motor skills. They'll use traceable lines to connect the group picture to the right number, and they'll feel like successful little mathematicians as they do.
