FREE Worksheets #3 - Number Bingo - Cognitive Skills and Development

The worksheets for this week focus on cognitive skills. These skills give your child the ability to think about new information, process it and then speak about it. In addition, cognition involves the application of this new information to other, previously acquired information.

These worksheets focus on the following skills:

  • Fine motor (cutting and placing the matching numbers over the number on the card)
  • Matching
  • Short term memory
  • Number identification

 

In addition, the benefits of matching activities include:

  • improve concentration
  • train visual memory
  • increase short term memory
  • increase attention to detail
  • improve the ability to find similarities and differences in objects
  • help to classify objects that are grouped by similar traits
  • improve vocabulary

How to complete this worksheet

  • Cut out each item, place them in a bag and pull cards from the bag
  • Announce the number to your child, and have them place this number on top of the bingo board. Alternatively, place a mark on each card as you announce it to your child to keep track
  • When your child has covered all the number - don't forget to shout BINGO!
  • Bonus: to practice cutting skills you can ask your kiddo to do the cutting
The matching and sorting activities will help your child to develop a range of thinking skills and build the foundations for later concepts. The visual memory and discrimination involved and the identification of patterns and relationships and similarity and difference help children to learn about early representation and problem solving. Matching and sorting activities can also be good for developing fine motor skills.
