Number 5 Worksheets

About These 15 Worksheets

These number 5 worksheets can help you get better at writing the number 5. This might seem simple, but just like learning to write letters neatly, it’s important to learn how to write numbers clearly too. Some of these worksheets will have dotted lines in the shape of a 5 that you can trace over, while others might give you blank spaces to practice writing 5 on your own. They also include counting exercises. For instance, you might have a sheet full of groups of objects, like apples, cars, or stars. Some groups have 5 items, some have more, some have less. Your task would be to identify and circle the groups that have 5 items.

These worksheets introduce you to basic math operations, like addition and subtraction, using the number 5. You might find exercises like 5 + __ = 10, where you have to figure out what number fills the blank. Or you might see 5 – __ = 3, and again, you’ll have to figure out the missing number. These exercises are super helpful because they get you comfortable with math, almost like you’re solving puzzles!

Number 5 Worksheets also teach you to recognize ‘5’ in different forms. For instance, you could have a worksheet that has a mix of numbers, and you have to pick out the 5s. This helps you get really familiar with how the number 5 looks, even in a sea of other numbers.
