My almost Kindergartner has been playing a little bit with numbers with these 1-10 number sorting cards. I love how many different ways numbers are presented and the practice she’s getting with number sense.
Note: I’ve had so many requests for number cards for 11-20 that I’ve made them, too!

1-10 Number Sorting Cards
These simple number sorting cards are a great way to help learners see different ways that numbers can be represented.
For each number, I’ve included the number, the number represented as a ten frame, fingers counting the numbers, snap cubes, the number word, and tally marks.
These are just a few ways to represent numbers, but I felt these were the best ones to use with my 5 year old for now. Pick and choose from these which ones you think are most appropriate for your learner(s).
You can sort them on a pocket chart or table top,
but you can also play a memory match game with them. You can just match two of a kind cards. You can also make it extra tricky by asking learners to match 3-4 of the same kind of card in the game.
Another fun idea is to play a “Which Ones Don’t Belong?” kind of game. Place the number card out and ask learners to find the card/cards that don’t belong. In the above example, the stack of four cubes and the number word six don’t belong.
Because these are open-ended cards, I would encourage you to let your learner help you think of different ways to play with the number cards. This is especially important for reluctant learners!
