This is a word document for teaching numbers, consecutive counting and number recognition from 1 to 30. The lines have been colour coded to assist students to identify the numbers making it easier to complete and be correct. Autism and Special Education students need this extra prompt to assist in recognising numbers over 10 and to understand where in the number chain they are, thus developing a sense of number value and an increase in number size.
I have left this as a word document so you can change the font or size as needed. You can always have spare numbers on hand by laminating and velcroing extra printouts.
Prompt your student to look first for the white numbers which run on the top line and then sort them out from all the other colours.
Then ask your student to look for numbers in the next colour line and thus practise visual acuity. This activity is also good for fine motor practice. If needed you can enlarge this sheet to A3 for students with visual impairments or those with fine motor difficulty. Once the matching is complete, point and count with your student to reinforce number sequence and counting ability. A good activity before you commence one to one correspondence with larger numbers.
