Teaching kids silly number rhymes is a simple way to help them learn to write the digits 0-9. Once they know those 10 digits, they can write any number under the sun: numbers as small as 15 and numbers as big as 359,461, 209,607.
Introduce one digit at a time by teaching the kids a goofy poem they’re sure to remember.
“Down and around. Then you stop. We finish 5 with a line on top!”
I included large poster sized printables for you to hang on the wall or use for whole class instruction plus a review sheet kids can use to practice in a math station or with their parents at home.
Then continue the fun with rhymes for those tricky teens and twenties too!
Number Activity Sheets
To help kids connect those numbers with their concept, I designed hands-on number activity sheets (one for each number from 0 to 30).
In all, kids practice 6-7 different ways of making just each number. So comprehensive!
