Counting into the double digits can often be a confusing and frustrating time for young learners. Why is the number called thirty instead or threety? Why is it fifty instead of fivety? Let’s not even think about the number 12. This simple number recognition printable will help kids learn the names of numbers, introduce the concept that we count in groups of 10 and introduce the concept of skip counting by 10.
The writing printable will help them visualize that counting occurs in groups of 10. Handwriting a complete set of 10 numbers, such as 30-39, will help them internalize the concept and help hone handwriting skills.
The best part is that both printables come in a cute penguin theme.

- number recognition printable
- writing practice printable
- Heavyweight Sheet Protectors
- Fine Point Dry Erase Markers
To use the number recognition cards, first cut out all the penguin cards. Flip the penguins face down and mix them up. Have your kids pick up each penguin card 1 at a time and identify the number on the belly.
To use the writing printable, first place the printed page into a clear sheet protector. It will work best if the sheet protector is completely smooth. Next, have your kids write out numbers in sets of 10, by writing 1 number on the belly of each penguin with a dry erase marker. For example, they can write 30-39 or 60-69. When finished, you can erase the numbers and write another set.
