1. Kindergarten Readiness Skills: “Find the Numbers” Activity
The following activity is easy-to-setup and it’s an important skill to learn before Kindergarten.

This is a fun learning activity that is quick to set up.
The Set Up:
- Easel (with chalkboard) or a large piece of paper
- Chalk (2 different colors)
- A small piece of paper
- Pen or a marker
- Decide on which two numbers you want to work on. We started with the numbers 3 and 5.
- Write your two numbers separately on two small pieces of paper.
- Now, prepare your easel. Write down the two numbers you want to work on as often as possible.
- Then, write down other numbers or letters. I started with letters and worked my way up to numbers.
- Then, give your child the first number on a piece of paper and tell him/her to find the number on the easel or the paper.
- When your child found the number have him/her cross it out or circle it.
- When your child found all the numbers introduce the second number to him/her.
Start with Two Numbers
I recommend starting with no more than two numbers at a time. When your child feels comfortable with those numbers you can add more numbers to the easel. While doing this exercise talk to your child about the numbers you chose.
Hint: Make sure your child knows the value of these numbers. Count to three and five. Find something in the house that has three or five items (like spoons).
