update: I added a set of cards with squares on them for 1-to-1 correspondence. The squares are for 2x2 stud bricks.


Montessori inspired activity using Lego bricks to count from 1 to 10. Teaches counting, introduces the concept of even and odd numbers.

There are three different card types in this file to be used with 55 Lego® bricks (control of error). Please use only one color of the bricks if possible:

  • for placing bricks under the cards
  • for placing bricks on the cards
  • for placing bricks on the cards with 1-to-1 correspondence

Print out, laminate and cut out. Prepare a basket (or another container) with cards and bricks. Present a lesson.

Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
