Stickers on a Line
Writing a straight line with numbers is an easy way to build your kid’s math counting and practice focusing skills. Simply ask your student to add exactly 10 stickers in a straight line using the sticker resource below. Our Sticker Number worksheet allows your child to learn counting, practice concentration, and strengthen hands eye coordination.
Sticker Names and Sticker Letters
Another innovative way to utilize the versatility of stickers is by writing your student’s name. Make it large enough for stickers to line up directly on each letter. They can also use the letters in their name to guide them — encourage them to place small stickers in the right spot.
And, of course, this requires concentration and fine motor practice while reinforcing letter and name identification. See above for a great example on how to make this activity fun and effective with sticker names and sticker letters!
Identifying patterns with preschoolers is fundamental to math concepts. It’s an important key to learning by helping children observe and make predictions. Plus, understanding patterns prepares your child for learning more complex math concepts.
Using sticker activities for encouraging patterns is another easy idea to incorporate with just a few steps. Simply grab some star stickers (or any variety of colored stickers) and show them a pattern with colors. See above Patterns with Stickers image for some helpful and creative ideas.

Lastly, ask your child to look in the count section, and fill in each box. Try using a colored crayon that represents each sticker your student finds. Consider asking your child to draw with a different color when marking each type of sticker.
