Free Printables for Kindergartners

Kindergarten printables focus on a number of important educational concepts, from early math skills to beginning reading. Printable activities for older children aren't appropriate for the youngest elementary school kids, since most kindergartners are just learning the basics of reading and math. It helps to have an adult nearby who can clarify the instructions on worksheets and activities and provide assistance as needed. The following printable activities are perfect for kindergartners.

More and Less Kitty Activity

One of the fundamental math concepts kids learn in kindergarten is the idea of more and less.

Instead, hand-on activities like this one give kids a chance to integrate the idea of more and less into their daily lives.
