To review all of the numbers, colors and shapes we learned as we went through our Letter of the Week curriculum, I made some fun review games! Note: If you missed it, don’t forget to do the A-Z Review also!
Clothespin Number Review: Write numbers on mini-clothespins and then have your child clip them on to the correct number of dots!
1-10 Number Sticker Sheets: This download includes numbers 1-10. You can put stickers in each square or laminate it and re-use over and over with any manipulative of your choice!
Number Word cards: This download comes with the letters in the boxes like below and for more of a challenge I also added blank cards for each color word as well. Your child can match up letter tiles to each number word card. The letter tiles are included in the download as well, but you could use any letter manipulatives you want to spell the words. Includes 1-10 number words. The word tiles come color coded to help younger children, for more of a challenge you can download my black and white letter tiles.
Number Dot Cards: You can use these a few ways, simply count the dots and say the number, use a fun manipulative like mini-clothespins or pom-poms. You can also use dry-erase marker to trace the numbers.
Chicka Chicka 123 Cards: We cut out these small numbers & add them to our alphabet tree as we are learning them.
Variation: Laminate and use as play-doh mats, or cut out and use as number lacing cards!
Number Collage Worksheets: 0-9 worksheets are included. Glue something on each one, color them, put on the correct amount of stickers based on the number, whatever you can think of!
Number Tracing: You can either use with pencil/crayon etc, or laminate and use with dry-erase. We chose to put stickers along each number just for fun.
Number Hopscotch: Pick any letter’s Large Floor Numbers and play hopscotch!
- Call out numbers in random order and have your child hop to it.
- Have your child put the cards in numerical order.
- Put them in random order on the floor and have your child hop to them in numerical order.
Dice Number Game: This is mainly an assessment for number recognition and counting. You can either use with a dotted die or one with numbers on it. Simply roll your die and circle the correct number in box 1, then roll again, and circle the correct number in box 2 and so on.
Number Magnet Pages: I had a reader ask for some number magnet pages, so here they are. Hope you like them!
Assessment Tests: I use these with bingo markers or Do-a-Dot Art Markers. The download includes A-Z, a-z, 1-20 assessment sheets. I call out a number and she marks it. This is an excellent way to assess what your preschooler has learned from this year, and what you still need to work on!
Shape Play-doh Mats: Laminate these shape cards and use them as shape templates for your play-doh learning time! Variation: Lay the cards out and have your child find objects that are the same shape and place them on the correct shape card.
Shape Tracers: You can use this a few different ways! This download includes 10 shape tracing cards.
- Laminate and use with dry-erase to trace the shape/word
- Cut out shapes for scissor practice
- Color or trace with crayon/markers/paint
- Place stickers along the edges of each shape
Shape Puzzles: Cut out each shape, then cut in half along the dotted line to make shape puzzles.
Shape Sorting: I used my Shape Cards from the Letter of the Week curriculum, and had we sorted our Large Buttons onto each shape card. You can also use the Color flashcards from the Letter of the Week as well for color sorting.
These cardboard puzzles came from Wal-mart. They were just a couple bucks for 4 of them. They include numbers and shapes along with some fun animal ones as well!
Shape Silhouette Match Up: Cut out the colored shapes, and match them to their corresponding shape on the outline game board.
Paint Brush Color Matching: This is a file folder Game I made for color matching. Instructions are included in the download, but you can see here how it’s set up:
Color words: This download comes with the letters in the boxes like below, then your child can match up the letter tiles to each card. For more of a challenge I also added blank cards for each color word as well. Both are included in the download along with colorful letter tiles, but you could use any letter manipulatives you want to spell the words. Includes 8 color words. The word tiles come color coded to help younger children, for more of a challenge you can download my black and white letter tiles.
I left the color words whole and just had her match them up. Later when she’s more advanced I’ll cut the letters apart and have her match them individually.
Color Puzzles: Simply cut out each square, then cut in half along the dotted lines to make into a color matching puzzle.
My First Color Book: If you didn’t already make this fun little book, here it is again! After printing, simply fold the 4 sheets of cardstock with color words on them in half and staple them down the center. I attached a colored piece of ribbon to each page according to its color. Then let my daughter cut out the images and glue them on each page based on its color word. (We did a couple pages per day depending on her attention level.) Afterwards we read through the book together!
Shades of Color (to be used with paint chips): This is a simple file folder game I made to work on matching different shades of colors. Click here to see the post for more details. You can download my color grid here, and I used a 1 1/4″ square punch to punch the colors out.
Zebra Domino Game: This is from our Letter Z week, but its a great color matching and logic skills review! I made these cards in several different color combination’s so you can play a fun game of domino’s that’s on a prek level. Simply match up the zebra colors next to each other to play the game.
Fun color matching puzzles from 1+1+1=1: I like this one from Carisa because it includes the color words!
