Hello! Here's the next number writing worksheet I created for my 4 years old boy in our homeschooling lessons.
Just a bit of explanation why I designed my worksheet in such way:
* Recognition - teach child how to recognise number 2: I begin with the example of how number 2 should look like followed by how you should write it. For number 2, I told my boy to draw a rainbow, followed by sliding it down and move to the right.
* Practise - teach child to practise writing number 2: Next, you will see 3 columns by 4 rows on how your child should practise writing number 2. I begin with an easy example of how to write number 2, dashed line with very bold lines, followed by less bold dashed lines in the next row and so on and in the last row, your child will need to practise writing number 2 without any guidelines. I do not want to do so many rows/columns as using my child as an example, he does not have a long attention span, so I keep the lessons short and sweet and simple.
* Identify - teach child to identify number 2: Finally, I included 3 examples with pictures, each picture will have the number of object(s) related to the lesson to learn, meaning if the lesson is to write number 2, the examples all will have 2 objects but there will be 2 numbers given for the child to choose which number is the right one to represent the number of object(s). For this, I get my boy to circle the correct number.
Here's a picture of my boy (taken on 21st March 2013) on his impromptu number 2 writing on his chalkboard while I was watching over our 1.5 years old Alyson playing in the water pool at our balcony. I think prior to this, I let Benjamin practise writing number 2 for about 5 times in total. I am very pleased with this results!
I don't have designing experience but if you would like a copy of the learning to write number 2 template that I created, feel free to download it here (Learning to Write Number 2.pdf (300.58 kb)) Please note that it is for personal use and I do not own any copyrights to the images used in the worksheet - all the images are from Microsoft Clip Arts.
That's all the updates I can share for now, feel free to ask and share if you have feedback!
