What Skills Can Be Practiced With These Free Printable Number Tracing Worksheets:
These number worksheets provide plenty of opportunities to practice tracing and writing numbers 1-20. Tracing is a great pre-writing skill for little ones, so even if your preschooler can’t write the number on their own, they can use the tracing template to help them form the shape of the number.
Since each page has the number in numeral form, as well as it represented in picture form, learners will get practice with one to one correspondence and making the connection between the numeral and quantity it represents.
Students can practice writing the number in word form with these worksheets as well! Just like with the number tracing, even if they are not familiar with all the letters of the alphabet, the tracing guides will help them learn the shapes and work on pre-writing skills!
Finally, the coloring and tracing portions of these activities allows for lots of fine motor skill practice!
After your child has mastered the skills listed above using the number worksheets, you can start to work on other skills such as ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd…) and skip counting!
