Teach your students how to write their numbers with these writing numbers worksheets for kindergarten! They make learning how to write numbers so much fun that it won't even feel like learning!
One of the most important skills your kindergarten students will learn this year is how to form letters and numbers. These simple skills unlock so much future learning! Once they can write their numbers, they can move on to counting, simple addition, and more.
However, it can be quite tricky learning how to form each of those shapes. Our students' hands are changing so much in the early years; they need time to develop the fine motor strength and control to hold and use their pencils just right.
Instead of just printing off a bunch of number tracing worksheets, make it meaningful! Incorporate those important fine motor skills at the same time. Use playdough, daubers, and other manipulatives to make this important practice more interactive and engaging. When kids are having fun learning, they will want to keep practising!

Dot the Number Worksheets
Part of learning how to write the letters is developing the muscle memory and hand strength to make these specific shapes.

Have your students "dot" or "drop" the number using daubers, droppers, or pom poms, depending on the materials you have in the classroom.

Once your students know how to form their numbers, give them some practice counting and following number order with this missing numbers chart. There are different levels, so you can either go from 1-10, 1-20, or 1-30, depending on how well your students understand the task.
Before and After Number Practice Writing Sheets
Instead of just practising writing the numbers, you can use these simple activities to test their understanding of number order. Students write the number that comes before and after each numeral. There are four differentiated levels with some pages that go up to 1-50, so you can use these all year long or in 1st Grade.
