Working with counting numbers is such an important math skill in early grades.
The trick, though, is that counting numbers don’t always look like numerals. They also appear as objects and number words.
Which is why these three-piece ladybug number word counting puzzles are so helpful for little learners!
These are fantastic for early math centers! Or you could put them in morning tubs for rotations!

These puzzles include the numbers from one to ten.
Each puzzle contains three pieces:
- One that depicts the number word
- One that depicts the numeral
- And one that shows a ladybug with the matching number of spots
After you print the puzzles and cut the pieces apart, mix them up and let students practice matching them correctly.
If you need to save on ink, a line art version is also included.
Personally, I love to use AstroBright paper whenever I’m using a line art product.
It adds a nice pop of color without using up all of my color ink.
