So I am pretty sure that winter has set in and isn’t going anywhere for a while. We have had snow on the ground every day except 3 since the middle of November and brrr is it already so cold out. While we have been spending many days outside playing in the snow, we also have many days where it’s just too cold to head outside and we need some fun activities to keep us from getting the winter blues. My four year old is able to recognize her numbers, but something we haven’t spent as much time on is number words. I created these penguin number word tracing cards to have on hand this winter to practice seeing, tracing, and spelling the number words zero through twenty.

Penguin Tracing Number Words
Setting Up the Number Word Tracing Cards
These tracing cards can be used in a variety of ways in both a homeschool and traditional classroom setting. Use these as a morning work activity or add them to your math center.
As a homeschool family, we personally use them as part of our morning basket activities we start each day with and then have them accessible in our “wipe clean” activities tub for the kids to grab whenever they would like throughout the day. We also add them into our math drawer for extra practice.
How To Use This Activity
These penguin number word tracing cards are great for preschoolers and kindergarteners and includes cards for numbers zero through twenty as well as several differentiated recording sheets for extra practice.
RELATED RESOURCE: Winter Math and Literacy Centers
Students will use their dry erase marker to trace the number words on each of the number word cards.
I like to give them a tissue or old sock to use as an eraser so they can practice tracing the number words over and over as they choose.
Once the students finish tracing their number word cards, they can grab a pencil and the recording sheet to write (or trace if using the tracing sheet) the number words on the page.
ADDITIONAL PRACTICE: Use the second recording sheet set to match the number word to the correct number.
Students will write or trace the number on the correct line.
- Use number manipulatives to match the number to the number tracing card.
- Spell out the number words using letter manipulatives.
- Use letter stamps to stamp the number words in play dough.
- Use letter stamps to stamp the number words on a piece of paper.
