Here are my number formation chants for 0-9.
They are a combination of number chants that I have always used from various sources and some that my former student teacher altered to make more kid-friendly or uniform with the other chants.
To save your printer from using too much ink... In this download there is a print-friendly version with white backgrounds.
The number formation "songs" I used are:
Down and around the hero will go, to make the number zero.
Straight line down and then you’re done. That’s the way to make a one.
Around a tree, around a tree. That’s the way to make a three.
Down and over, and down some more. That’s the way to make a four.
Down the side, make a backwards “c,”then put on a hat for five to see.
Down and around to make a loop. That’s the way six makes the hoop.
Go across the sky, and down from heaven. That’s the way to make a seven.
Make an “s” and close the gate. That’s the way we to make an eight.
Make a circle, and then a line. That’s the way to make a nine.
