It’s all about the penguins!
Winter is the best time to do penguin themed activities, and today I’m excited to share our latest printable, the Penguin Math Activities for Preschool pack.
I created this pack with 4+ years old in mind, which means the packet is full of colors and definitely engaging!
Getting Ready for Penguin Math Activities for Preschool pack
First, let us talk about getting ready with this pack.
I would say that you don’t need to do any preparation for this activity.
Just print the pack and you are so ready to go!
14 Exciting Colorful Activities in Penguin Math Activities for Preschool
Currently there are 14 exciting Penguin themed preschool math activities in this packet.
These activities are meant to introduce number sense from number 1 to number 10 as well as introducing little ones to the concept of math itself.
Penguin Math Activity #1: Odd Ones
Find the different penguins and circle it.
Penguin Math Activity #2: Same Ones
Find the Penguin that is the same with the one the colored box, and circle it.
Both Odd Ones and Same Ones activity is great to help preschoolers learn categorization, which belongs and which does not belongs.
Penguin Math Activity #3: Pattern ABAB
Kids are going to complete the Penguins’ pattern in this activity.
They will cut the Penguins, and paste them correspondingly.
Penguin Math Activity #4: Shape Matching
This is a simple straight forward activity, but it also need kids to pay attention to details.
Study what shapes does each penguins sit in.
Match them to the matching shapes.
Penguin Math Activity #5: Number Recognition
Oh wow the Penguin’s belly has a number on it. Can you see the number?
Have your kids find the snowballs that have the matching numbers and color them.
Penguin Math Activity #6: Number Maze
This is one of number recognition activities that your kids would love!
We are going to help the penguin to find its friend.
First, read the number that’s covered with icy snow.
Then, color the snowballs that have the number.
Penguin Math Activity #7: Number Tracing
This is perfect for preschoolers to practice writing the numbers.
First, they have to count the penguins in the 10-frames, then trace the corresponding numbers.
And later copy that numbers.
Penguin Math Activity #8: Snowflakes 10-Frames
Count the Snowflakes in the 10-frames.
Then cut and paste the corresponding numbers into the given boxes.
While practicing counting, kids also got the chance to practice their fine motor skills which is cutting and pasting.
Penguin Math Activity #9: Fish 10-Frames
10-Frames is one of the tool to help little kids to clearly visualize their counting.
For my kids, 10-Frames help them to not miscounting things. If your little munchkin is just beginning to learn their number, you can try with counting 1-3 first.
To do this activity, first have your little learners cut the fish by themselves (using safe kids scissors)
Then let them read the number on the Snowball.
Next, have your kids paste the corresponding quantity of fish in the Penguin 10-frames.
If your kids are like my kids who paste things started from the bottom rows, just let them be.
At least they know how many fish is related to the number in the snowball.
Penguin Math Activity #10: Count and Color
Oooh the Penguin is fishing!
Let’s count how many fish that the Penguin has caught.
Have your little munchkin count all the fish on the fishing rod as well as the ones in the bucket.
Then color the corresponding iceberg that has the corresponding numbers
Penguin Math Activity #11: Count and Circle
Let’s have fun counting the penguins and circle the corresponding numbers.
Penguin Math Activity #12: Number Matching
Count the penguins in the snow, and match them to the corresponding numbers.
Penguin Math Activity #13: I Spy
Perfect for kids’ visual discrimination skills and problem solving skills.
Kids need to count the penguins and write its quantity in each of the penguin’s boxes.
Penguin Math Activity #14: Count & Graph
Have your little munchkin find the baby Penguins.
For each baby Penguin they find, cross that baby Penguin (my kids cross the found Penguin to avoid miscounting them) and color 1 box for 1 Penguin
