Missing number worksheets for kindergarten

Updated on May 29, 2014

Missing number worksheets are useful in helping preschool and kindergarten children re-inforce their counting skills.

Learning numbers is one of the most important things children do at the preschool and kindergarten level. Obviously this lays the foundation for further math learning. To start with, children need to be able to recognize the 'sound' of the numbers, the written numbers, and be able to say the numbers in order.

Kindergarten missing number worksheets as part of kindergarten math worksheets can help in learning / practicing numbers in an interesting and absorbing way. Here we refer to missing number worksheets as ones where kids have to fill in missing numbers to complete a sequence of numbers in order. Nicely made worksheets with an interesting activity, good illustrations and perhaps cartoon characters and pictures often make it more fun to learn and less of a burden on the child.

Before using missing number worksheets ...

1. At first children need to get familiar with the 'sound' of the numbers, i.e to recognize the spoken 'one', 'two' etc. You can help them do this by singing aloud to them number rhymes such as 'one, two, buckle my shoe', and 'one, two, three, four five.." etc. This would help them in recognition of the 'sound' of each number.

2. To convey that each number 'means' something you can try to relate numbers to usual, everyday things, like for example you can show them one apple, two buns etc. At first start with just one and two, later on, you can progress one by one.

3. You also need to help them relate the number to the written symbol of the number , i.e the written 1,2,3 s. You can use number recognition worksheets to help re-inforce this.


Missing number worksheets for preschoolers

In missing number worksheets kids will be given a set of numbers in sequence with some numbers missing. The objective is to fill in the missing numbers, such that all the numbers are in a sequence. For preschool kids the numbers will be in a straight natural sequence i.e. 1,2,3,4 etc up to 10 or 20.

The worksheet can be a simple grid of numbers or it can involve some activity like to fill in the missing numbers to help someone/something achieve/reach something/somewhere.

Where to get missing number worksheets

Worksheets are widely available - both online and offline. They are available as bound workbooks or as 'loose sheets' i.e. individual worksheets. Most kindergarten math worksheets / workbooks would likely have some missing number worksheets.

Printable kindergarten worksheets are also widely available online. Again as part of kindergarten math worksheets you will probably get some missing number worksheets. Printable worksheets need to be downloaded and then printed out (on your home printer) for use. The advantage of this is that you can buy/download almost instantly at any time / any place and thus begin to use immediately. Also you would have the choice of which sheets to print and possibly print specific sheets many times for your child if more practice is needed.
