Preschool Counting Lapbook
You can click to see it bigger. Here’s the preschool counting lapbook my four-year-old made.
The file is available at Simply Lapbooks. Some additional pieces are added here though. There is counting 11-19. That’s the ice cream cone. If you download the file, you’ll notice I fixed the scoops so you can put them in front of the one under it. I’m too cheap to reprint it out for my son though. He doesn’t care. He likes to pretend the ice cream is going to topple over.
There is counting 20-29 which is the graduated book. I made the numbers bigger on the file you can download at Simply Lapbooks. There is enough room on most of the pieces to have your child write the number if you like.
There is counting 90-100 which is the triangle. It keeps unfolding. This could be used with older kids to do skip counting since all the odds are on one side of the paper and evens the other.
There is counting 10-0 if you want to practice counting backward. My son just likes to open it all the way and start at 0 though.
He likes to count through the whole lapbook from 0 to 100. The bat piece is there because my son loves bats and wanted some on his lapbook. You can use those to count up to 20 bats. This can also be used for skip counting by fives.
Then there is also a little book with just the tens written out 30-40-50-60-70-80-90.
The clothespin counters are cards with dots on them where your child can clip clothespins to the dots for 1-10.
The rest on there is not on the file you can download. The leaves counting book is from a teacher book bag at CurrClick, the bat book (he wanted to put it in there–said he could count the bats) I found online somewhere, and the little rectangles with animals on them are from my son’s preschool workbook. He cut them out and said he would count the pictures inside. Half of his school is just to keep him happy and occupied so it’s all good to me.
