A fun numeral writing practice! (including a blank version)
Our worksheets for the numbers zero to ten combine number representations with classic numeral writing practice – in a fun way to motivate and engage children beyond just tracing numerals!
Why no number words, but two versions? Blank version and no number words mean, that you can include them in desired writing and language(s)!
The numbers enable the children to trace the numerals in different sizes. The first version helps with orientation:
• 1dot = This is the starteng point, and I follow the arrow(s) without stopping to the end.
• 2 dots = Here I start new and follow the arrow. Lines with smaller boxes allow further practicing.
The pictures put number aspects into a child relevant context. They invite children to talk and to design:
• Numbers are not abstract but living individuals who have a home like us. Important number zero is included right from the start.
• The number take the classic way of representing numbers with fingers into “their own hands”,
• their houses have windows with 5+x instead of dots on dice,
• they have garden fences instead of tallies,
• they plant flower beds instead of using dots in 5 or 10 frames.
• Wind wheels for number representation in twos (6=2+2+2).
• The bushes are for birds, blossoms, berries – what ever the children have in mind. Only the total must match the number!
• Houses and flags split into even and uneven.
• Hang on: The chimneys and aerials do not match the numbers. Do the children notice? Do they bother? How do they want to go about it?
