Write Numbers 1 to 9 Worksheets
Starting students often with concept of numeracy all begins with knowing your numbers and being able to write them. Just like letters are the foundation of written language, numbers are the foundation of all forms of math. At this count students may not complete have their counting sequence memorized and that is just fine, we will use this unit to reinforce counting skills as well as working on those fine motor skills with penmanship. One of the things that I want to be sure students can do, at this point, is recognize the names of numbers. I reinforce that concept by having them trace the number and the name of the word that represents it. These worksheets and lessons focus on teaching students how to write single digit numbers.

Tips to Teach Youngsters How to Write Numbers 1 to 9
Most of the time teaching kids is fun. But when it comes to teaching them numbers, it can be a little more frustrating and difficult as you would have expected. In kindergarten, soon after your students have learned to count, they are required and expected to write the numbers 1 to 9 too. With a reminder that you have to be very patient and understanding, let's share a few tips with you to help students teach how to write 1 to 9.
It starts with encouraging you to have students frequently get involved in coloring. Have coloring books and online coloring activities available at the ready. If there is any down time, get them coloring. Coloring helps students in some many ways that I do not even know where to begin counting. It helps them develop fine motor skills and a high level of comfort with a writing implement that few things can while maintaining a high level of fun. I mean come on, I still love to color with them and I’m only a decade from retiring. This will eventually lead to better handwriting skills, and they begin to understand abstract concepts like (inside and outside) by staying within the lines. Not to mention that it gives them a jump start on learning their colors.
Once your coloring game is tight, draft a colorful sheet and allow the students to trace the numbers along the lines. The more that they trace, the more confidence and familiarity that they will have with these numbers. Make sure to keep the sheet really colorful and engaging; this will build their interest.
Prepare a sheet with two columns. Draw a few images in one column and write the numbers alongside. Allow the kids to count numbers and write them down in the same column. Make number images. Draw numbers in shapes and images. This is going to be a sheet filled with numbers that are written in shapes. Allow the kids to trace those shapes within the figures, this will help them to learn the transitions of the shape.
Give the kids direction, wrote the directions in words. For example, to tell them how to write one; tell them 'start at the top and pull the line straight down'. Ensure to give creative and engaging directions that help them understand the shape of the number.
Some teachers like to present the number 10 with students at this stage. I am not a big fan of that. This presents students with the concept of place value and pulls them away for the goal of teaching them each individual number. I would highly recommend saving that for another year. Let them become 1 to 9 experts first.
