Number Line 1-10 Worksheets
How to use the worksheets
These free, printable worksheets feature our simple 1-10 number line and 8 addition exercises.
Start with the first equation: 1+1. Tell your child that you are going to start at the first number (1) and then ‘hop’ or ‘jump’ along one space (+1), and that is where you will find the answer on the number line.
You can use a pencil, a token or a finger to move along the spaces on the number line – whatever your child is most comfortable to do without losing track.
Ask your child to write the answer to the equation in the space provided. If your child is ready, they can try to complete it on their own and you can go through it with them afterwards and check their work.
For a little bit of fun, we have identified these simple number line worksheets by animals in the top right corner – once they have completed the frog worksheet, they can move on to the monkey, then the
kangaroo, whale and dinosaur.
With sums to 5, the jumping frog worksheet is great to start off your child’s number line practice.
Next, on to our monkey worksheet – working around the middle of the number line with sums of 4 to 7.
Our Kangaroo is hopping to sums of 5-9. Starting from and adding on bigger numbers can get tricky, so make sure your child is comfortable with how they are ‘hopping’ along the number line so they don’t lose track!
Our wonderful whales worksheet has sums of 8-10. By now, your child might have the hang of it and could possibly attempt the equations by themselves.
Finally, dinosaurs! Don’t forget to congratulate your child when they have completed a sum correctly. The power of your praise will go along way for their confidence in math.
