Get ready to make a splash with this engaging raindrop counting worksheet, perfect for spring!
Counting the raindrops can help develop essential early math skills such as one-to-one correspondence and number sense, and when your little ones are writing them the answers they’ll develop their number formation skills!
And let’s face it, children love to count! It’s one of the main preschool math skills and an essential skill for them to develop!
So grab your umbrellas and let’s dive into some rainy-day counting fun!
What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?
This rain counting worksheet is designed to help your children practice and develop their prewriting skills, such as:
- One to one correspondence – this important skill (trickier than you may think) is the ability to only touch and count an object of a set once.
- Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to go
- Hand and finger strength – the ability to be able to apply enough pressure to make marks on the page and hold the pencil firmly
- Hand dominance – developing and strengthening the skill of one of their hands
- Number formation – understanding what the numbers look like and how to form them
- Pencil control – holding the pencil correctly to allow for a fluid range of movement
Some of these are vital fine motor skills that will enable them to become great writers in the future!
