Print these free number tracing cards to help your students learn number formation!
Not long ago, I shared a set of alphabet tracing cards. A reader requested that I share a set of tracing cards for numbers as well. So here you go!
After you laminate the cards and put them on a ring, you’re ready to begin.
- Have your student name the number.
- S/he should put a finger at the green dot and trace the number, following proper formation.
- If able, your learner should count the objects next to the number.
My Four can count objects up to 6 without difficulty, but needs a little help after that.
She doesn’t recognize any number past 10, so this was a good time to introduce “the teens.”
The cards go up to 20. After that I included 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 80, 90, 100.
And no, no, no, I am not going to create 31, 32, 33, etc. Because I like to do things besides create resources. Like sleep.
After we looked at all the cards, my Four wanted to use a dry erase marker to trace the numbers. She finished about ten cards before she was ready to be done.
- Make sure you laminate the cards and put them on a ring for durability and ease of use.
- If your focus is number recognition, have your learners use their finger and not a dry erase marker. It’s the tactile experience that helps learners remember the number names.
- If your learner struggles with proper formation, hold his/her hand while tracing.
