Explore the Number 5 Worksheet - Identify, Color, Count and Trace Activities

There's a lot of dull worksheets out there. Not here! We think kids deserve better

The cheeky little frogs on this number 5 worksheet are begging to be counted!

As your little ones point at and count each one what sound will it make? Ribbit! Ribbit! I used to go looking for frogs when I was about 5 years old. I would've loved this worksheet!

Our preschool worksheets attempt to stir the imagination to help make learning the number five more amusing, pleasant, and interactive. 

By taking on a number of different tasks, kids can grow in their familiarity and understanding of basic math. Teaching one number at a time can make the whole process less confusing and stressful. So we've created separate ones for the numbers 1-10. 

All our worksheets are designed by a children's illustrator, and a teacher/psychologist...they're all free because we're committed to closing the equality gap in children's education.

Your children have probably already learnt to recognize the number 5 when they start using this resource. Now it's time to deepen that recognition, practice writing by tracing on the dotted lines, and coloring in 5 frogs. 

This number 5 worksheet is great... but how else can I teach the Number 5?

Maybe your a games fan, a video fan, a song fan, an outside fan... as a teacher or at home I liked to do a bit of everything. Once kids have learnt 1-5 it's a great opportunity to integrate that into many everyday situations.

How about preparing some dollars and letting them pay for things, counting out the notes and handing them over? You could explain to the cashier that they've been making great efforts in learning their numbers! Helping them realise how useful numbers are can be a great motivation. There are probably hundreds of interactive way of getting them to use their number learning. Could they help put the laundry away? Taking 5 pairs of socks upstairs...

As the worksheet teaching all about the number five is frog themed, how about playing a game that involves jumping like a frog. Ever seen a frog jump in slow-motion? It's quite an amazing sight. Games could be as simple as trying to get to something in 5 frog jumps, a frog jump race with counting, a frog jump race to collect 5 items (1 at a time) and bringing it to froggy home. Frogs eat insects so you may not want to use them to collect :-0 

When it comes to the number 5, other popular methods include singing songs or nursery rhymes? When it comes to writing you might want to practice writing in a salt or sprinkles tray? What else might your write the number 5 in?  

Paper Saving Tip

How about laminating these worksheets so you can use them again and again? Simply use a dry-erase marker and wipe off after use with a wet cloth. Great for the classroom, home-schooling, or for lots of practice at home.

We appreciate that schools around the world all work in different ways, at different paces, and do things in different orders. We acknowledge that many different ways of learning can work well, different approaches being more suitable in different cultures and contexts.  We believe that sooner is not better than later, and faster is not better than slower. We wish to support everyone in the way they work so if you work differently and we can help, please do get in touch.
