# Number Counting and Tracing Book

Our free printable alphabet tracing roads have been a HUGE hit so I was excited to put together a follow up activity book that was all about numbers.

This freebie is a hands-on way to teach kids how to write and understand 0 to 10. Use it as a classroom math station, a homeschool activity or a busy bag. There are so many possibilities!!Â  For more alphabet fun, check out our Ultimate Preschool Activity Pack in our shop!

## Making the Book

After printing the free number bookÂ (below) on cardstock, I cut apart the cards and slid them into a 4 x 6 photo album I’d picked up at the dollar store.

I insertedÂ a number on the left side andÂ a ten frame on the right. Then I picked out ten of the smallest cars I could find inÂ my boys’ Matchbox car stash and called my 4.5 year old over to join me. {Smaller cars fit better on the ten frame.}

## Number Tracing and Number Concept

Using the book is really straight forward – no complicated directions needed. Big Brother picked out a car and placed it next to the “GO” circle. Then he drove the car around the road, following the direction arrow as a guide.

Next, he grabbed a matching number of cars from the pile and drove them into the ten frame parking lot.

I was a little nervous that the cars wouldn’t fit with the bigger numbers but they did. Whew!

My sonÂ continued driving and parking his cars over and over again. Easy peasy. I was thrilled to see that the new activity book was a motivating way to help him practice number writing and number concept.

3. It’s me again. Oh my goodness to cute. I have the same question is it possible to get a black and white set to save on ink. I have six kiddos and this would be very expensive for me to print. You do amazing work thank you for sharing. Again if you can’t no worries I will figure something out.

4. Thank you so much for sharing these Malia! I printed off the capital letter book and thought it would be great to have numbers, too-came back to your blog and voila! There it is!!!

5. Hi,

I love the number tracing and counting book!!! As a CPS teacher, we have to teach certain units, and 1 of our units is roads. I was wondering if there is any way that I could get a copy of the full sheet numbers from 0-25? I would really appreciate it!!!!!
