Learning Telephone Numbers Printable

One skill I want my preschooler to know this year is her telephone number. I created a printable activity that serves as a reference sheet for my daughter.

telephone2-web There are 2 versions, 1 with the area code and one without.

I wrote our number in pencil in each of the squares. Next I had my daughter practice dialing by touching the number pad on the sheet. Then I had her cut out the numbers (provided in the download) and glue them in the right square. We have this hanging on our “learning” board so that we can practice it. She can look her sheet and use her pretend phone to dial or practice writing it on the chalkboard. We also sing our phone number:

My Phone Number
(sung to the tune of Where Oh Where, Oh Where is Shadow)
7            7     7           7         7   7       7
Where oh where, where is shadow?

7            7     7           7         7   7       7
Where oh where, where is shadow?

7            7     7           7         7   7       7
Where oh where, where is shadow?

Is my phone number.
Where can shadow be?

Just substitute your phone number where all the 7’s are located. If you are not familiar with the song, you can hear it sung at the beginning of the video of  Bear in the Big Blue House.

How do you teach your young children important phone numbers?

Really cute! I am almost certain it would work for me. I don't know my phone number!

Oh dang, I was about to print this out and I asked my son (5 1/2 yrs old) what my phone number was and he nailed it! He also knows Daddy's! Man, this was so cute too! Haha! Oh well, proud mama here!

LOL! I know--kids have no idea what the cords are for anymore. I needed the numbers to show on the phone and I could not find a picture of a cell phone that I could use on this printable!

Way to go on already knowing his important phone numbers!

Tune is also "Ten Little Indians." (One little, two little, three little Indians [or whatever you chose. I pick different things to go with whatever we're working on.] Four little, five little, six little Indians. Seven little, eight little, nine little Indians. Ten little Indian boys [or girls.])

Yes! Where were you last night when I kept singing this song to myself trying to remember what the real tune was? Thank you!

Thank you so much! I am going to use this as part of our All About Me unit next week (homeschooling kindergarten). Thanks for the song idea!
