Pirate Counting & Skip Counting

Arrrr! Let's get counting and skip-counting with the pirates! Here is a fun activity for the young ones to practice counting skills!


FREE printable Pirate-themed counting activity, perfect for preschool and kinder kids who are practicing counting 1 to 10, as well as skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s. Super fun math activity for pirate lovers!

Pirate Themed Counting Activity


Learning activities, specifically counting activities, should be a fun experience for young children. Make counting fun for them during your pirate theme/unit with these free printables. Simply print and laminate and help the pirate to his ship by counting, arrrr!




Use a dry-erase marker to draw the "path" by counting to get to the pirate ship. Use the 1-10 counting sheet, skip counting by 2's or 5's, depending on the ability of the child and the skills you want to develop at this stage. Notice the path goes from left to right? It is the direction we read and write, making this a pre-writing activity as well.




Add real or play coins to the activity to count out the "path" to get to the ship. Coins and pirates go together, right? And, using coins adds a hands-on element to this counting activity to make it more fun, not to mention the fine motor skills it develops to stack small coins!

Picking up small items like coins calls for the pincer grip. The fine muscles used for the pincer grip are also used to grab a pencil when writing. This is an important skill to develop while doing other activities.

Counting, fine motor, and pre-writing skills in one fun activity with the pirates, arrrr! Fun learning indeed!

Pirate Treasure Chest Shape Sorting

Preschool and kindergarten kids will love these shape sorting activity with treasure boxes. Looking for a fun way to reinforce math shapes? This activity will have kids reading the name of the shape, identifying the matching objects on each card and then sorting the shape into the correct ‘treasure box’.

FREE printable Pirate-themed shape sorting and matching activity, sure to be a hit! Preschool and kinder kids will love to pretend to be a pirate and put all the coin shapes in their correct treasure chest.

To prepare:

Print as many sets of these mats as you need. Laminate the mats or use dry erase pocket inserts for easy prep! Laminate the shape cards too, and have them ready in a plastic sleeve.

Shape Sort – Pirate Treasure Box

Use these mats to help kids develop number sense and strengthen their knowledge of shapes. They can be used in a number of ways. Have the kids sort the shape cards into the correct boxes. Another great way to use these mats is to print them out in black and white and have the kids cut and paste the shapes into the corresponding treasure boxes. You can do this by printing two pages on one landscape page. 


This pirate themed activity is perfect for kids who are interested in pirates and love the theme! You can definitely differentiate this activity by using the shape boxes that the kids are familiar with if you have kids who are not familiar with all the shapes.

This game can also be played as a group. It will be even more enjoyable to have a competitive game played between groups. Give each group the same mat and have the kids sort their shape cards all at the same time. The group who finishes first with the most number of sorted shapes wins the prize!

Feed the Sharks ABC Beginning Sounds Activity

Pre-k and kindergarten kids will enjoy ‘feeding the sharks’ as they work on their beginning sounds with these fun mats. There is a poster with the key to each picture letter-sound so you can definitely differentiate this activity! Print the learning mats, laminate them and you’re set to go.

FREE printable initial letter sounds activity with a fun shark and fish theme! Perfect for pre-k and kinder kids who are learning beginning letter sounds.

To prepare:

Print as many mats as you need for the number of students in your class. Be sure to laminate the shark mats along with the fish letter cards. There are letters a-z fish cards and a random mix of beginning sound pictures on the shark mats but 24 picture sounds in total.



Beginning Sounds Activity – Feed the Sharks


Use these mats to help kids develop beginning sounds skills. Start by getting the kids to choose a random ‘fish letter card’. They identify the letter on the card and then look for a picture on the mat that starts with the same letter. They can also look for the key on the printable poster to help them identify the picture they are looking for.


For advanced play, have the kids do this without looking at the key. My ESL kiddos need to refer back to the key as they match their beginning sounds. I find that the second time around, they are able to do this more easily as they remember the name of the pictures on the mats!


This game can also be played in a group as a competition between two teams (or tables). Have the mats printed on large A3 poster paper and get the kids playing on these. Be sure to print the fish cards also on A3 paper (nice and large) for the little ones to match.

Letter Recognition Alphabet Cards

Preschool moms and teachers are always looking for new ways to work on basic skills. If you're looking for a new tool to use with your preschoolers as they work on letter identification, these letter find cards are just what you need! Preschoolers (and kindergartners!) will love searching for each letter of the alphabet on these cards. This low-prep activity is quick and easy to set up so you'll be all ready to go in no time.


FREE printable ABC cards for preschool, pre-k and kindergarten kids to practice their letter recognition skills in a fun, hands-on way! Great for year-round alphabet fun!

Letter Recognition Cards

I suggest printing the alphabet cards on cardstock and laminating them for durability. Cut the cards apart so that you have a total of 26 cards. You can store them in a zipper pouch or plastic bag. Or, you can punch a hole in the top right corner and place them on a binder ring. Gather some glass gems, counters, or mini erasers, and you're all set!



Have your child or student choose a card and identify the letter the alphabet kid is holding. After they've identified the letter, encourage them to place a gem or counter on the matching letters. There are five of each letter on the alphabet cards.



You can choose to introduce the cards one at a time. Or, you can give them the entire set. You could give your older preschoolers a few cards and have them put the cards in alphabetical order before completing the letter find portion of the activity.

There are many ways you can use these cards. They'll make a great addition to your letter recognition activities all year long!

Cheeseburger Letter Build Playdough Mats

Preschool kids will love these alphabet playdough learning mats! This kit includes a ‘cheeseburger’ mat for kids to build their letters on and alphabet play dough ‘pickles’ letter cards. Kids will choose a pickle card and then identify the letter on the card. They will place it on the play dough mat and build the letter using play dough.

FREE printable Playdough mats featuring a cheeseburger and alphabet pickles. Fun theme that preschoolers and kindergarten kids will love! Perfect for year-round letter practice and fine motor fun.

To prepare:

Print the ‘cheeseburger’ mat and 'pickle' letter cards. There are two options for this mat (one with eyes and one without). Laminate the mat along with the 'pickle' cards. There is also a black and white option for the letter cards to save colour ink. You could use coloured paper to print them on too – although this will make it slightly harder to see when the kids start building their letters.



Alphabet Formation Cheeseburger Play Dough Mats

These mats are so much fun for preschoolers and kindergarten kids alike. Kids need a lot of practice in reading, tracing and building their letters once they begin learning them. It is important that we provide them ample opportunities to study each letter formation and shape.

Once everything is laminated, place them on the learning table along with play dough tubs and maybe some rolling pins. A student will choose a letter ‘pickle’ card and then identify the letter on the card (e.g: ‘e’), they will say a word that begins with the letter ‘e’ like egg. They will then place the pickle card onto the cheeseburger mat and start building the letter.

You could also choose the letters you are working on and focus on a particular set rather than the whole set at once. The kids will love doing this! If you would like this activity larger, print the cards along with the ‘Cheeseburger mat’ on A3 poster paper.

ABC Letter "Surgery" Puzzles

Pre-K and kindergarten kids will love these alphabet matching puzzles! This activity features letters that are ‘broken’ and the kids need to perform ‘surgery’ to fix them. They will find the matching letter piece and build their letters.  There are two versions of these cards so you could easily differentiate and modify the activity to suit all your learners!


FREE printable Lowercase Letter puzzles for pre-k and kindergarten kids to practice letter recognition. A fun "surgery" theme with band-aids is perfect for an occupation, doctor or community helper theme. Great for year-round alphabet learning!

To Prepare:

Print the letter cards, laminate them and cut them. If you print the black and white version, you could use coloured paper to make them even more fun 😉. There is a recording sheet that comes with this pack. Print as many as you need for each student in your class.

Letter Building Activity – Letter Surgery


These puzzles are so much fun for preschoolers and kindergarten kids alike. You could totally differentiate this alphabet activity depending on the skill level of your students. Once you’ve laminated the letter cards, place them on the table. The kids will choose one piece and try to find the matching piece to build a letter.



The easy version of this activity means that these cards are colour coded and the kids can easily identify and find the matching colour piece to build their letter if they’re unsure. If using a file folder, place the cards in an envelope (inside the file folder if you’re using one). I use rubber bands on my cards to keep them in place. This is also optional but you can add Velcro on each puzzle piece and place matching Velcro dots onto the folder.

A recording sheet is included so that you could monitor each child’s individual development.

You could also choose the letters you are working on and focus on a particular set rather than the whole set at once. The kids will love doing this! If you would like these cards larger, print the cards on A3 poster paper.

Owls Alphabet Sort & Match Activity

Pre-K and kindergarten kids will love this owl themed alphabet sort activity! Create a sensory experience for kids by placing the owl cards into a sensory bin with some coloured rice. Students will look for the owl alphabet cards, identify the letter and then place the owl on the matching log.  

FREE printable alphabet activity featuring owls on a log or branch. Great for preschool and kindergarten kids to practice letter recognition and upper to lowercase matching. Perfect for owl and animal lovers!

To prepare:

Print and laminate all the cards. You could also use dry erase inserts for these if you want to skip the lamination step. Print as many sets as you need for your set of students. Cut up the owl cards, you could also cut up the log cards but I didn’t cut them up just to provide more of a challenge for the kids.


Alphabet Sort – Owls on a Log

This activity is so much fun for preschoolers and kindergarten kids alike. You could totally differentiate this alphabet activity depending on the  level of the students in your group. Once you’ve prepared the log cards, place them on the table along with the sensory tub and owl alphabet cards (inside the tub). The kids will look for an owl card and pick one out randomly. They will identify the letter name and then look for the matching log strip. There are upper and lowercase letters for practice. Have the kids match all the owl cards onto the logs. For an easier option, have the kids match only a few letters at a time.

You could also choose the letters you are working on and focus on a particular set rather than the whole set at once. The kids will love doing this! If you would like these mats larger, print the mats on A3 poster paper.

How to prepare this activity:

Print out the sheets in color and laminate if you wish (you can print the eggs and bunny on cardboard and use a dry-erase pocket too). Then, cut the eggs and the bunny out.

Attach a small peg to the bunny to make the bunny stand up and to easily move the bunny between the numbers.


FREE printable Easter Bunny activity for preschool and kindergarten kids to practice number sense, counting and one-to-one correspondence. Fun and hands-on early math activity, perfect for Easter!


How to play and learn:

The very first thing is to order the numbered eggs. (The age and ability of the child will determine if this is an independent activity or not. ) After that, count the eggs. You can count forward and backwards too!



Writing the numbers- let the bunny jump onto a number and the child can write the number above the marker. This can be done in order or just randomly. If you have a dice that shows numbers up to 10, you can use that as well.



Missing number- Cover a number and ask the child which number is missing and write it down. If he/she is struggling to do this, count with the bunny to find the answer!



Lastly, do sums! Add (or subtract) numbers using two dice. Throw the dice and use that to determine the numbers to use. Write the number sum down, draw the "jumping" lines and use the bunny to hop too!



Such a fun number hop activity for little ones to develop number sense with the help of a cute bunny friend!

Materials Needed:


Alphabet Find and Dab Sensory Activity – Easter Theme

These mats are so much fun for preschoolers and kindergarten kids alike. You could totally differentiate these alphabet mats depending on the  level of the students in your group. Once you’ve printed the mats, place them on the table along with the setup sensory tub, magnetic letters (inside the tub) and some bingo daubers. The kids will look for a magnetic letter and pick one out randomly. They will identify the letter name and then look for it on the mat. 



There are two versions of the mats (one with lowercase letters and one with uppercase letters). For an easier version of this, have the kids find and match upper-to-uppercase letters and for a more challenging option, have the kids match upper to lowercase letters.

You could also choose the letters you are working on and focus on a particular set rather than the whole set at once. The kids will love doing this! If you would like these mats larger, print the mats on A3 poster paper.

Spring & Easter Chicks Number Sense Activity

Looking for a fun way to introduce one-to-one correspondence and counting strategies to your preschoolers? They will identify the numeral or count the dots on each "chick" and then place the same number of math cubes. This activity is completely differentiated and can easily be used in centers. Number sense should be fun and easy to teach!

FREE printable counting and math activity for preschoolers, perfect for Spring or Easter, featuring adorable baby chicks. Great to use with math cubes, bricks or counters. Hands-on number sense activity for Spring!
This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

Print as many mats as you need for the number of students in your class – I like to have a mat for each group of 4 or 5 kids. This way, they can work on the mat comfortably. Print, laminate, and cut these mats, then place them at a math center along with unifix cubes/math cubes ready for play.

Number Sense Counting Cube Mats - Easter

Use these mats to help kids develop countingand one-to-one correspondence skills. The best way to teach numbers to 4 year olds is to give them practical examples of developing these skills. Show the students the numeral on each ‘chick’ or have them identify it by counting on their fingers then show them that many cubes as you link them on top of each other to create a tower. Be sure to watch the kids as they see you do this.


There is plenty of room for differentiation with this activity, so you could definitely use it with preschool as well as kindergarten kids. If you don’t have math cubes, you could use this with counters or these Easter-themed mini erasers will work really well!

As an extension activity, you could have the kids complete a magnetic ten-frame mat to show their answers as they complete each step.

Lucky Letters St. Patrick's Day ABC Game

Are you working on letters with your preschoolers? Letter recognition and beginning sounds?  These little leprechauns are here to help! Preschoolers will love playing Lucky Letters in a group setting or individually. This low-prep activity is quick and easy to set up so you'll be all ready to go in time for St. Patrick's Day.

FREE printable St. Patrick's Day Alphabet recognition game featuring leprechauns and letters. Easy, low-prep activity for preschoolers to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

Leprechaun Letter Recognition Game

I suggest printing the game boards on regular printer paper so kids can color the shamrocks. Or, you could laminate them and use small counters (buttons, erasers, etc.) to cover the shamrocks instead of coloring them.  Print the leprechaun cards on cardstock and laminate for durability. Then, cut the letter cards apart. That's it! You're all set for some Lucky Letters fun. 



Choose a game board - uppercase or lowercase - and the corresponding leprechaun cards. Turn the leprechaun cards face down.

Have preschoolers choose a leprechaun card and name the featured letter. Ask them to find the matching letter on the game board and color or cover it. Then, have them say it's sound. 

Continue in this manner until all of the shamrocks have been colored or covered.



You can mix things up once your kids are comfortable with this basic game. Give kids a game board and the opposite set of letter cards. This will help them match uppercase and lowercase letters. You could also have them put the cards in ABC order before searching for the matching shamrocks on the game board. 

There are many ways to use these cards and game boards. And, all of them are perfect for the month of March!

These alphabet writing cards will help your little ones practice letter recognition and letter formation in a fun way. The low-prep cards are a breeze to set up! Just print, laminate, cut, and go! 

Alphabet Writing Cards

If you've got a young one working on writing their letters, these alphabet writing cards are a great low-prep way to have them practice.  If you laminate them, kids can write with a dry erase marker and use them over and over again. Punch a hole in the top corner and bind them with a ring, and they're great for an on-the-go activity.  There are so many ways you can use these alphabet cards with preschool and kindergarten students.

Obviously, you can use these cards for handwriting practice. But, that's not all. If you have letter magnets or felt letters, you can spread the cards out and have kids match the letter magnet to the correct card.

You can mix up the letter cards and have kids put them back in alphabetical order. Or, send kids on a scavenger hunt to find things around the house that begin with that letter.  Whether you add these to your Seuss-themed units or you just add them to your alphabet activities, kids are sure to enjoy practicing their handwriting with these writing cards.

Learning with rainbows and rainbow colors makes any counting activity more fun and inviting. We used colorful pompoms as counting manipulatives here, but one can use buttons, mini erasers, even candy like M&M's or Skittles! 

How to set up this rainbow counting activity 

You will need:

  • The free printable cards (link at bottom of post)
  • Rainbow color manipulatives
  • Numbers (we used craft foam ones here)
  • Rainbow color containers (optional but nice to have)
If you use the containers, add the colored pompoms to the containers. The kids might like to help with the sorting, PLUS it is another great learning activity! Add the numbers and the rainbow cards to the setup. If you'd like to be more organized- and hope to keep it more or less contained, you can have a container for the cards, another container for the numbers and set it all on a tray.





How to play and learn 


The aim of this activity is to let young children explore numbers and counting from 1 to 10. You will see there are also two blank cards if you wish to add other numbers too. This will depend on the age and ability of the child.

  1. Simply count out numbers using the manipulatives. This not only works on counting, one-on-one correspondence, but fine motor skills too!
  2. Find the correct number (this develops visual discrimination).
  3. Compare numbers by looking at the pompoms and seeing hands-on which card has the most/least. Talk about these concepts to develop language and vocabulary.
  4. Place the number cards in order, from 1 to 10. Count forwards and backwards.
This can easily be an independent activity for a a Math center too, or even a busy bag! Have fun with these bright and cheery rainbow counting cards!

Valentine Penguins Alphabet Matching

Preschool kids will love these alphabet matching cards game mats! There are two versions of these mats to suit all your learners. The best part about this activity? You could print and set it up as a file folder activity!

FREE printable Valentine's Day alphabet game featuring penguins! Perfect for preschoolers practicing letter recognition, and includes uppercase and lowercase letters. Perfect preschool literacy activity for Valentine's Day!

To prepare:

Print both mats in colour or greyscale and then laminate them (you will be glad you did after the kids get their hands on the mats 😉). Print the coloured heart cards and be sure to laminate those too. I chose to create a booklet with these mats by using a hole puncher but you can also glue these mats into a file folder and have them setup and ready for use year after year.


Alphabet Matching Activity Mat Valentine Penguins

These mats are so much fun for pre-schoolers and kindergarten kids alike. You could totally differentiate these alphabet mats depending on the  level of the students in your group. Once you’ve laminated the mats and cards, place the cards in an envelope (inside the file folder if you’re using one). I use rubber bands on my cards to keep them in place. This is also optional but you can add Velcro to each alphabet penguin on the mat along with the matching set of heart cards. It’s really totally optional!

Kids can work on matching their uppercase – lowercase letters or they can match uppercase – uppercase letters. A great way for kids to practice letter differentiation.

You could totally turn this activity into a competitive group game by having two sets of file folders and have the kids compete to match all their ‘heart letter cards’ with the penguins on the mat. The group to finish the whole set with no mistakes (or least amount of) wins the competition!
