After a long, hot summer, I bet you can’t wait to get back into the classroom and meet your new kids! Preschool is a time for learning and discovery and most students will be eager to get started too.
Preschool and Pre-K students are just starting to make sense of numbers and these counting mats will be perfect for back to school. You can download these free printable number mats below and use them with your students in the beginning of the school year.
The theme is perfect to flow in with the beginning of the school year as the images are of school supplies and all things school related.

Free Printable Counting Mats
These first week of school themed number mats create a fun hands on learning experience for young children. I have included numbers 1-10 in this free printable pack with circles as a visual guide for students when counting.
For the full version of these number mats, purchase the mats for numbers 1-20, as well as the mats without the visual guide here.
What to Do:
Print out the free counting mat files below on card stock or regular copy paper. If you’re planning on resting them for multiple students, I highly recommend printing on card stock or laminating them after printing on copy paper. This will provide maximum durability.
Use small counters to have students place 1 manipulative into each circle for every number.
