Here’s a great freebie for you as well! I use these mats as a choice after centers for my math labs… all 10 numbers on one page for them to make! Click the image to get your freebie!
Learning your numbers is so important in kindergarten and even more so to form them correctly!
Here are the poems
I use to correctly form the numbers!
1 – Straight line down, and then we are done. That’s the way to make the one!
2 – Round the track and back, two, two, two!
3 – Around a tree, around a tree, that’s the way to make a three!
4 – Down and over and down some more, that’s the way we make a four!
5 – The bee goes down, around the hive, go back up to make a five!
6 – Make a C then in you go, now you’ve made a six you know!
7 – Across the sky, then slant the line, makes a seven every time!
8 – Make an S and do not wait, go back up to make an 8!
9 – First a circle, then a line, that’s the way to make a 9!
0 – Round and round just like a O. Look, now you’ve made a 0!
Each number has a poster for the poem, a corresponding worksheet, and a parent letter explaining the poems and offering ways to help at home! I have recently added a Counting Snap Cube
Center to this product so the kids can practice making the numbers and hopefully recite the poem while they do so during centers!
And now there are practice pages! 43 pages of practice activities that use the poems!
