These sheets give children a graded approach to learning to write numbers, using red-green dots, outlines, grids to assist with managing size, and red/blue lines.
Some children require more practice of writing than what the school curriculum allows time for. These sheets give parents the opportunity to provide a graded approach to practicing number writing with their children at home. Children can complete the whole sheet or just the section they may be struggling with (eg. writing in lines).
- The visual clues assist children who require modifications for visual perceptual, visual motor integration or motor planning difficulties. The green-red dots assist in planning movement, the yellow inside the blue lines help focus visual attention to the space within the lines.
- There is also a graded size approach to assist children who are having difficulty using isolated finger movements with the pencil. They are still able to achieve some success with formation and line placement, even though they are not able to accurately form small letters.
- Picture clues are given to assist the child identify the number.
Please NOTE: If your child is having difficulty recalling number formations, it is important to also incorporate a multi-sensory approach to enhance their learning. Writing in sand, making the numbers in playdough etc.
