Finding quality books, isn’t always easy but luckily the Caldecott Medal winners have a bright seal on them! One is One by Tasha Tudor is a beautiful book. Originally published in 1956, it retains an old school charm, reminding me of a simpler, more wholesome time.
One is One is a celebration of Tudor’s watercolor pictures of children, animals and common scenery. It is a lyrical story of counting thing found in everyday rural American life.
What better thing to do than count along with the book? I just recently got my printer fixed and was delighted to find an opportunity to go through counting printables I’ve had my eyes on for so long.
We got busy with these counting printables:
- 1-10 Match and Count Cards
- Learn to Count 1-10 Printable
- Number Coloring and Writing Practice
- 1-24 Printable Buildings for a Play Street
- African Animal Coloring Book (scroll down)
- Animal Number Coloring Pages
These match-the-number counting cards are so cheerful and happy! They are designed from picmonkey icons! So clever 😉
We matched them together and then went through the book and found the corresponding icons for each page. And then repeated the process with the numbers and words.
The learn to count printable has bright exciting colors and is made for all sorts of materials. Use markers, stones, stickers or dot markers to color and count!
These little houses were lots of fun to line up. We counted numbers, compared sizes, shapes and designs of the windows.
The coloring pages are fun too. I have some adult coloring sheets to color while my little one tackles hers.
Check out the Little Bunny Series, scroll down past the letters to find the number coloring book. The author has made a beautifully creative collection of work here for little kids.
The number sheets are nice to encourage hand writing practice, I slipped them into plastic page protectors and gave my Little Miss a erasable marker and let her have at them. The plastic sheets are a great way to reuse these printables, they will last a few cycles and save paper.
With so many different ways to count, we were busy for a few hours!
