Number Writing Practice Sheet (Free Printable)
I have a couple of little ones who are really good at math, but not so good at penmanship . Although they know the correct answer to an arithmetic problem, they often write it backwards.
So I designed this numeral writing printable to give them some extra practice.
If number reversals are a problem at your house, try printing out several copies to use with your young students. You can require them to do the whole page, or just the numerals that give them the most trouble.
And if they need a little extra practice (on either numbers or letters), try one or more of the following activities:
- Spread a little shaving cream on the kitchen table, and have them use their finger to draw the numerals in the lather . If they make a mistake, they can easily smooth it away and try again
- Have them to form all ten digits out of play dough or modeling clay . If they get one backwards, it’s a simple matter of flipping it over to make it right.
- Practice writing numbers with sidewalk chalk on the porch or driveway.
- Give your child a paintbrush and a cup of water, and have him “paint” his numbers on the sidewalk .
- Spread some uncooked rice in the bottom of a cooking tray and let your child practice drawing the numbers in that.
- Save on paper! Laminate our number writing practice sheet, then use a dry erase marker to complete it.
Be patient. Correct their mistakes gently and lovingly . Give them lots of opportunities to practice.
If you know of any other helpful tricks to teach the proper orientation of digits 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 9, be sure to share them below . My kids are always happy to try something new.

Thank you so much! Needed this for homeschool during lockdown as school want us to practice number formation but without any resources to help… And btw we love Jesus too!! Have a lovely day xx
February 10, 2021 at 6:33 am
So happy to be able to help — especially another sister in Christ!
January 29, 2020 at 2:53 am
First off, thank you!
I was simply looking for a good traceable number worksheet (with all of the numbers) and after finding two “free” ones that weren’t free if you actually wanted to print them (!), I found your worksheet. Because of that, I found your blog. Within 10 seconds I’d bookmarked it. 12 kids! Wow! But what’s so incredible is your willingness to share what you’ve learned, things you’ve created, and basically your life with the world without expecting something in return. That’s amazing.
Oh, and definitely listing loving Jesus FIRST speaks volumes…. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you and tell you how much I appreciate your blog!
February 1, 2020 at 4:06 am
What a delight it was to find your sweet message in my inbox this morning, Jeanni. Thank you for those thoughtful words of encouragement.
March 17, 2019 at 1:26 pm
Thank you, i was feeling as if my child is the only one. This is very helpful and encouraging because i feel at least there is some assistance i can offer. God bless you.
March 17, 2019 at 5:11 pm
You’re so welcome. Very rarely are the struggles we experience with our children unique to only us. It was always encouraging to me, too, to see families whose children were older successfully come through problems we were presently experiencing, because it gave me hope that our struggles were “overcome-able.” 🙂
April 6, 2017 at 2:10 am
Thank you very much for sharing!
April 6, 2017 at 7:18 am
You’re welcome, Elena!
November 15, 2016 at 12:54 pm

The number tracing is wonderful!! I teach PreK and I have had a hard time finding a tracing page that has the correct formation that I teach! Lovely! Thanks!

Counting To Ten With Ten Black Dots – Number Practice Sheets for Preschoolers
This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. Read my disclosure policy here.
Don’t miss out on these number practice sheets for preschool learners. They’re an easy way to tie in reading and counting!
Fun counting activities for preschool kids based on the color word book Ten Black Dots. Use the book to practice counting to ten . Then continue counting with numbered snacks, songs, and learning activities . Includes FREE printable counting mats that are the perfect number practice sheets.
Number Practice Sheets for Preschoolers
You’re going to love this simple preschool learning activity. It’s a lot of fun to watch your child learn and grow and this preschool activity is so great for building their confidence as well.
I love cute books that include counting in the text. Ten Black Dots is a favorite. Children can count from one to ten with easy rhymes and brightly colored pictures.
The book starts by asking the reader to imagine what they might do with ten black dots? And then answers the question beautifully with rhyming text and bright colorful pictures. Three dots can make a snowman’s face or beads for stringing on a lace. Seven dots can make the spots on a snake or stones turned up by a garden rake. In the book, the large black dots transform into different objects as you turn the page. The fun starts with one black moon and finishes with ten black balloons.
Counting to ten has never been more fun!
This is a very easy book to read. Younger children seem to enjoy the simple text and brightly colored pictures. It is a really good book for wriggly preschoolers as you can turn each page quickly. Ten Black Dots manages to combine counting and imagination in a very creative way. You can expect your kids to request this book repeatedly.
My kids and I loved to read this book and we did so quite often! We’re big fans of combining different ways to learn and read so we love to partner up number practice sheets as well.
AS YOU READ THE STORY
Stop at each picture and count the black dots. Then ask,
- How many dots do we have on this page?
- What else could we make with (X) black dots?
AFTER THE STORY
Give your child ten black dots. You might use
- Pom poms
- Use a circle punch to cut dots from construction paper
Read the story again and invite your child to place their dots over the dots in the pictures. Of course, you will count as you go.
Enjoy some fingerplays and songs that you can use with your number practice sheets:
Childhood 101 has a nice selection of counting rhymes . My favorite is
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Once I caught a fish alive, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Then I let it go again. Why did you let it go? Because it bit my finger so. Which finger did it bite? This little finger on my right.
Enjoy some more Counting books
Have a counting snack
Find some snacks that are easy to count. These would include
- Goldfish crackers
- Fruit pieces
Say, “Let’s eat six goldfish.” Count them out together and enjoy the snack. Follow this up with another numbered instruction, “Now let’s eat four slices of banana.” Invite your child to take a turn choosing the number of bites. (it’s a great way to get them to eat something healthy, too!)
Alternately, make Ants on a Log and vary the number of ants for each log. If your child is helping, you can have them count out the raisins. Kids love to help in the kitchen so this is a great family activity.
COUNTING TO TEN WITH NUMBER PRACTICE MATS
Naturally, we need to have a fun counting activity to go with this book. We’ve made a set of free counting mats to help your child practice counting from one to ten.
These number practice sheets include a lot of learning, but they are still fun to play with. The mats will help your child with counting, 1:1 correspondence, and number recognition.
- Black dots try pom poms, black buttons, or punched circles.
If you want to use the mats more than once, pop them into dry-erase sleeves and invite your kids to use dry erase markers .
Instructions to start using these Number Practice Sheets
Give your child a pile of dots. Then show them how to use the mats.
- Point to the number word and read it aloud.
- Point to the numeral and say it aloud. Invite your child to trace the number with their finger (this develops muscle memory of how each number is written).
- Point to each dot in the ten-frame held by the child and count them as you go.
- Help your child to count out the correct number of dots. Then show them place the dots on the empty ten frames.
- Help your child count out more dots and place them on the numeral.
MATH TIP FOR PARENTS OF PRESCHOOLERS
Numbers are symbols that represent specific quantities. This means that numbers are an abstract concept. Your preschooler is a concrete thinker right now, so numbers are a difficult thing for them to grasp. Placing dots on the ten frame helps the children start to visualize and experience each number.
Don’t worry if your preschool child doesn’t seem to really understand numbers. It is that concrete thinking brain of theirs. They probably won’t grasp the whole idea of numbers until they have been in school a while.
At this stage, you are just building pathways in the brain. It takes children’s LOTS of practice to make the connection between the symbol and the quantity. It will click as their brain matures and they can start to grasp abstract concepts and symbols.
Some of our favorite math activities include Unifix Cubes For Preschool Math as well as Ladybug Playdoh Math Counting Mats .
I would encourage you to keep counting activities light and fun. Pressuring children to do the math before their brains are ready can cause unnecessary stress. We don’t want to put our kids off math for life.
Other Ideas for using the mats
- Roll out playdough to form the numeral.
- Use a cotton bud dipped in black paint to make the dots on the number.
- Children can color on the mat if they wish.
When you have finished the mat, ask your child to go find the same number of objects. For example:
- Let’s find 6 cars
- Can you find 6 Lego blocks?
- Now count out 6 crayons
Lay the objects in groups around the mat and say, “Look! We have 1,2,3,4,5,6 cars and 1,2,3,4,5,6 blocks and 1,2,3,4,5,6 crayons.”
Count slowly and invite your child to count along with you.

Number Formation Practice Sheets
by Angela Thayer 9 Comments
It’s so exciting to watch a child learn to write! Just like reading, writing takes time and practice. It’s not a skill that’s developed overnight. Children have to practice fine motor skills to build up hand strength, learn how to hold a writing utensil, and learn the formation of letters and numbers. In my experience, older preschoolers or kindergarteners are at a good stage for learning to write.
I love using my number rhymes to teach how to write numbers! I’ve written rhymes for numbers 0-10 and numbers 11-20 . Today I’m sharing with you free printable sheets for children to practice writing these numbers.
I created the number rhymes printable posters a while ago, but I knew something was missing. The posters are great for displaying around the classroom or using to trace with a finger or writing utensil, but I wanted some sheets for children to practicing writing numbers. That is exactly why I created these printables for you all!
I am not a big fan of only doing paper and pencil worksheets to practice writing. Once a child is old enough and is strong in fine motor skills, I recommend learning to write with a pencil.
My almost 4-year-old and almost 7-year-old tried the sheets out for me! My youngest has never written numbers, so this was all new to him! I put the paper in a plastic sleeve and gave him a dry erase marker. This makes writing a lot easier for a beginning writer.
As you can see, he isn’t holding the utensil the proper way, but he will get there! He was SO exited to hear the rhymes and learn how to write letters! Every time he saw the red dot, he knew that was where he needed to start writing the number.
We have a lot of work to do, but at least he was excited to try!
My older son had no problem forming the numbers, but it was still good practice for him!
If you’d like to use this free printable, you can download it right here –> Number Rhymes Printable Sheets
Let me know how you plan to use them! Happy learning!
Sharing is caring!

My students and I love these sheets, but I’m just curious why you didn’t go all the way to the number 20? We learn from 0 through to 20 and I’m sad we don’t have the practice sheet for it. You have the Rhyme sheet, but not the practice sheet!?! Thanks for a great resource, but can you make 20? Thank you
April 27, 2021 at 2:01 pm
Thanks for the feedback. Just updated the file to include #20!
February 17, 2021 at 6:48 pm
Thank you so much for these, Angela!! They are exactly what I was looking for for my son. Love the poems. Thanks again for such a great resource!

September 6, 2018 at 8:39 pm
Yes, number 2 is included in the printable.
July 27, 2018 at 11:03 am
These sheets are awesome- thank you so much for sharing all your freebies! Just wanted to know why there isn’t #20 included?
July 28, 2018 at 11:52 am
Thanks! I only wanted to do up through the teen numbers and didn’t want to go up through the twenties. I’m sorry if that’s confusing!
