An easy, colourful worksheet enhances understanding (Children can have some fun learning this way)
As the students are tracing the numbers, walk around, monitor and offer lots of encouragement. Ask everyone questions (e.g. What number is this?") and encourage each student to say the number as they are tracing it.
The ability to accurately identify shapes is a foundational mathematical skill, and it is quite rewarding for children because their world is full of shapes. Understanding shapes will enable students to be more in tune to the world around them and see the connections between objects, as well as being better able to appreciate artistic works.
